    Do you have any Thundersky batteries that are missing the laser-engraved logo button in between the terminals? According to one poster in the Thundersky Yahoo Group, these are alleged to have yellow cases, exactly the same as the legit ones, except they are missing the logo badge.

    I've only ever seen them with a color gem sticker in the middle, with a green and red globe design, with white lines and a white thunderbolt through the middle. I've never seen (pics or otherwise) a laser engraved emblem there.

    its not a "laser-engraved logo button"..... Lets try to keep this accurate as possible nonpoluter.

    its a laser engraved model number on the plastic case.




    It'd be best to requote the important things to look for:

    Hi,

    When I was negotiating with ThunderSky about a small order, they warned me about
    the fake battery-cells, if I would try to buy from a "too-cheap reseller".
    They told, that these are the main descriptive marks:

    "Our battery is yellow.
    Molding has our company name.
    With LASER marking for the model no.
    Central Place has a colorful logo between + & - terminals."

    Thanks for clarifying Travis.

    @Non-Polluter: Probably best to leave the rumors and knee-jerk comments on the "Blunder-Sky" forum.
