Check me, are these legit?
Alright lads, I just got me some brand spankin' new Sony VTC4's and I don't trust myself to verify if they're truly the real McCoy. Pictures: 

Positive pin:[Image: u50wxXX.jpg] that's a bit of dust on the top, sorry.

Code thing (forget what its called): [Image: aBxevjk.jpg]

This is a sticker, note the shine:[Image: ZIwG2TV.jpg]
Negative pin:[Image: wAI2uOj.jpg]

What do you think?? I looked up comparisons and they look pretty good, but I wanted to ask. Also, these things are cold! Its only about 30 degrees F here in Virginia and I just got them from the mail. Is it safe to charge them if they're this cold or should I wait till they warm to room temp? Thanks!

T-Slug, they look legit.

I'd wait for them to get to room temperature for the first complete charge...

I don't have any Sony batteries, but they look legit to me. One way to tell is how they preform.

I can't tell from the pic, but as long as they have a four-prong connection on the positive terminal then the rest looks legit Ok
