    I would love to know too, I've only purchased DJI batteries from Amazon, and then I've made sure I've selected 'Sold by: Amazon EU S.a.r.L.' so they should come from somewhere reliable.

    These eBay sellers who state they (and the goods) are in the UK - annoys me greatly. eBay need to sort these sellers out.

    The software would probably spot an error message if it was not genuine.
    I have not seen ANY instances of fake Inspire batteries (yet).
    Have you actually tried flying the battery?
    You may find after one cycle it is fine. I assume it is showing zero charges in the history section of the app when you pull it up?

    Mark, I've bought 3 batteries at different times from them. 2 were OK one was DOA. Popped the battery lid and disconnected the only plug you see for 30 sec and plugged in and repopped the lid. Working fine ever since.

    Try the reset trick as @IrishSights suggests above.
    You really should not be flying your batteries down to 7% unless you are doing a calibration. They won't last five minutes if you do that everytime.
