The most important note is that you'll probably be getting a battery that was manufactured over a year ago. This is important because, as another reviewer pointed out, lithium ion batteries degrade over time even in storage. So the cost savings, which are significant compared to the full-priced battery on Lenovo's website, correspond to a certain decrease in quality.
I bought this as a replacement for my 5-year-old T400, which I'll probably be replacing within a year anyway. So I was willing to take my chances with the manufacture date in order to save money. (Not willing to take chances with a 3rd-party replacement which might have an unreliable fit.) The one I received is 14 months old: dated 2012.01, purchased March 2013. It still holds a ~4 hour charge (longer with lower power settings).
It arrived completely discharged, which is fine because batteries last longer when stored discharged.

it seems genuine lenovo battery. all the prints on the box and the surface of battery says so, no error message popped up when the battery is hooked to the computer. then you will be curious why this battery is $40-50 dollar cheaper than the price of the battery on leonovo site. yes, there is always a reason.
the battery I received was manufactured about 1.5 years ago. aging of li-ion battery begins from the moment it is manufactured no matter whether it is used or not, according to some article even unused battery lose around 20% of capacity every year.(there must be lots of variations depending on the manufacturues, models, and storage conditions)
design capacity of this battery is 56.16wh, and current full charge capacity of this battery is 56.07 according to the power manager full charge of capacity of this battery is 56.07Wh. looks good. but I have no idea how long this unused old battery will last yet. I wanted a replacement battery for my 4...
It appears to be genuine as the laptop did not give any warnings about an incompatible battery. However, it is already showing diminished capacity after only a few months. The battery life with typical usage is only about 1.3- 1.5 hours. I would have expected a new battery to have more like 2.0 to 2.5 hours.
