That battery looks to be the apple original battery. I can see what looks to be glue on it.

One more (last ?) question nicklatino :

You think it's an original because of the glue ?

by

It's my best guess, but I have other reasons to believe that particular battery is old. The imperfections after removal are consistent with the original batteries I have replaced on 3GS not the new ifixit batteries.

Check to see if one has ANY stick to it and thats the original battery. Or if one has some stuff pulled off (it maybe be little lighter dark or something). Otherwise there is no way to tell.

There is no stick labelled 'ifixit' or a special reference writen on it ?

No I mean on the 3GS, the battery is in the iPhone and is glued in or it uses adhesive tape. Thats what to look for. If not, take picture of both batteries (front and back) and put them up here. I or someone else hopefully can figure out which is which.
