Genuine Sony NP-FW50 battery variant #1

This is probably first variant of EU version of Sony NP-FW50 battery. Oldest ones that I have encountered were manufactured in 2010 while newest ones in 2014. All analyzed copies have same micro QR code either with sharp edges or slightly rouned, fuzzy ones. They weight around 58 or 59 grams and have serial number starting with letter K. There are no hologram stickers or any additional markings on those batteries.

This is copy manufactured in 2010 with sharp QR code:

This is copy manufactured in 2014 with slightly rounded QR code:

Genuine Sony NP-FW50 battery variant #2

This is more recent variant of EU Sony NP-FW50 battery. Each copy of these batteries have unique data matrix code in lower left part of sticker. This code can be used to identify battery manufacture date as well as checking if battery is authentic (check tips and hints for details). There is also green hologram with 14 characters in two lines. On different angle this hologram says "Sony" or show letter "L" or "R".

This variant should weight around 42 grams.

Another variant of EU Sony NP-FW50 battery. It is older version of variant #2 and looks almost the same except sticker on the bottom and markings on the back which are slightly different.

This variant should weight around 42 grams.
