It's used, and they're showing a stock photo.  I wouldn't buy it either.

The issue with lithium rechargeable is that they age from the date of 
manufacture.  Charging cycles have much less effect that on other 
batteries with other chemistries such as NiHM or NiCad while simple age 
will effect them much more.

You really want to get a newly manufactured battery.
