    I was interested in buying a new battery for my gameboy micro. I had purchased my gameboy a couple of months ago and the battery looked to be in pretty rough shape (See the video). I went onto eBay to purchase a new one. On eBay I saw two different models advertised. A 460 maH and a 600 maH version of the battery. I purchased the one labeled as 600 maH, assuming it was just the 460 maH wrapped in a different shell. Once it arrived, I put it to the test, head to head against my original! The results were extremely surprising.

    (Either watch the video or view the spoiler for the results + summary)

    Yeah, without saying anything on what you actually have, that's the trick used by the battery fakers -- even if the 2500 you paid for (which somehow has the same exact size as the original 1200) is actually a 1000 and wears out way too fast, it will still feel like an improvement on the 1200-worn-to-700 original :)

    If enough people want me to, I can buy a new 460 maH and compare that to the other two.
