Country of Origin Labelling - Battery

I bought a new NP-FW50 battery


The packaging states "Made in Japan", which has always been a by-word for good quality.


Then I look on the battery inside the packaging and it states "Made in China" on the battery.


Can you please confirm what is actually Made in Japan?



P.s. Tried to upload pictures then the HTML option was removed so I'm stuck with the Rich Text Version.

Re: Country of Origin Labelling - Battery

Hello, Russty2020!

May I ask where you purchased the battery? Does the battery have a Sony seal/hologram seal? Unfortunately, there are a lot of counterfeit batteries out there, and some even have fake hologram seals. I'm asking you these questions because I think it's odd that the packaging says 'Made in Japan', but the battery itself says 'Made in China'. Maybe it's completely normal for the packaging to say this and the battery says something else, but you never know.
