    I am looking for a back up battery for Panasonic G3, and the prices in these two links seem too good to be true especially compared to the DMW-BLD10 price at B&H Photo and Adorama. They also look different in the photos too.

    These are all labelled as "Replacement Battery" so you can assume they are not genuine Panasonic. That said they may defeat the Panasonic block on non-oem batteries but I'd check with the seller first.
