It looks original to me- I don't think imitation products would copy the logo and original box, though I see it says made in Japan on the box...which might suggest that the battery is fake while the box is real!

However, if the power rating doesn't differ, you may as well go for it.

Here you can buy the real deal:
Pentax D-LI68 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery 39635 B&H Photo

It's got 1000mah, so the one in your photo is not authentic.

or you can get one for $3.99 delivered:
eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d?r
mine just arrived ( takes 2-3 weeks from China to Australia - never mind it is cheap! ) today, took ~ 10min to get fully charged , looks good , works good and seems to be OK.
hopefully this weekend I will take it for a walk with my Q and see if it will match or even outperform the original Pentax battery.
kind regards

I ordered 2X these but have no idea how good they are or not...it didn't occur to me to check my original battery first

I'll find out in a few weeks.

Sorry for the slight off topic but has anone managed to lay their hands on the POWER ADAPTER for the Q? I am in Europe and the only option I have found so far is ordering the bally thing from waaay overseas which means I will end up paying waaay more for it than it is realistically worth.

hi, the POWER ADAPTER for the Q , as far as I know does not exist.
the battery charger, there is one on AUeBay right now:
eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d?r
it will work in Estonia, just needs figure 8 to European wall power plug cord.
kind regards

Pentax has used the Q battery before in other cameras. Doubt that Pentax makes batteries so they must have other companies manufacture them. So the new Q battery may be slightly different than the previous version. This would explain the different packaging too. They could all still be original Pentax equipment.
thanks

The power adapter is this: 38946 Pentax K-AC115 AC Adapter Kit for Pentax Q Digital Cameras
This is one of the reasons I purchased the Q: to do long time-lapse movies, covering one day or even several days, which no battery could do. Pentax should deliver on its promise of the power adapter. I mean it is much easier to develop and mass manufacture this thing than it is a lens, so what faith I am supposed to have in the Q if they can't do even this for us after six months of the Q availability?
