A far more cost effective offering and able to deliver a very close performance to the Fuji battery
on 26 December 2014
I picked one of these up having used a few Ex-Pro batteries for various cameras I've had (no problems to date and the 2 year warranty adds some confidence too)
This was for a Fuji X-M1, but it also fits a variety of other models including the HS super zoom bridge cameras and X-Pro 1, XE-1, XA-1 etc
The cell is rated for the same power output as the Fuji original NP-W126 cell (1260mAh), in reality all batteries can vary a bit in performance and actual capacity. For me the real test is using a battery out in the field and this is near as damn it just about as close to the Fuji that I can't say I've noticed any difference between both (weight is very similar too a good sign light batteries can be sub par). Case quality if anything is slightly better on the Ex-Pro cells (plastics feel more dense) charging and battery indication in camera works perfectly no problems at all. The battery has a large line/arrow which shows you what direction to insert the cell (ie near to the orange battery tab in camera) this is printed both sides on the case.
The real winner is the cost you can buy roughly 4 of these batteries for the price of a single Fuji NP-W126 cell. Nothing wrong with the Fuji it's a decent battery but the price is just too high. As this does the job just as well I'd recommend this as the one to buy for a spare battery or replacement.
