Question...on the back of the LP-E6N battery is a little silver colored rectangular square with 6 numbers in it:   I have surmised that the numbers there represent the date the battery was produced?

 

Can anyone verify that???   


製造日期 is written to the left of the six numbers, so yes, you are right. On some batteries only Korean hangul are written but I have never studied the Korean language.


Neither have I, but I'm pretty sure that what you've quoted there is Chinese. not Korean. Or conceivably Japanese, whose kanji characters often resemble Chinese. But Japanese text usually includes some word endings in hirigana or katagana. (Forgive my probable misspellings. My only exposure to Japanese was very long ago.)

The quoted one is kanji. Even if I have lived in Japan I still can't see the difference everytime between Chinese kanji and Japanese kanji. Hiragana helps. On some but absolutely not all batteries: kanji to the left, hangul in the middle and the date to the right. On some others, hangul to the left, date to the right.
