Hey RDN,

 

HP batteries are made by many different manufacturers when new.  I don't think real vs. fake is meaningful at this point in the lifecycle of your dv6000.  Any battery made for that model by HP would be a few years old by now and probably have very little capacity left.

 

If the new battery works, keep using it.

it is meaningful because I want to give back this battery because it has a very low capacity but the seller doesn't accept return but if I can demonstrate he gave me a fake battery when he told me it's original I can have a full refund and not a partial refund.

It is a fake battery. As you can see it is missing the UL listed logo. I also received a fake Mu06 a while ago and was able determine it was fake by missing certificates and the battery did not fit the laptop smoothly.
