Thanks for the info. The reason why I asked for your MacBook model is...a couple of the newer (and last) MacBook models were the "Unibody" design...which have non-user removable batteries...which would almost 100% guarantee that the batteries are original "equipment". But obviously your 2007 MacBook has the removable battery.
Do you still have your old MacBook dead battery? If so...you could compare the old & new batteries. If not...generally "genuine" Apple battery's have the Apple logo on them...and the words "Designed by Apple in California" (or something like that) will be printed on it (you have to remove the battery to see this).
