I brought my Fujifilm X-E1 camera with me, leaving my heavy DSLR kit behind. Awesome, or so I thought at the time. Unfortunately I forgot my battery in the charger. Funny, this never happened with the DSLR or my M43 camera... Perhaps that's because I have two batteries for each of them and swap them whenever I charge. And only one for this nifty Fujifilm camera. Oops.

Well then. This easy to use, compact, stylish product resolves that confounding issue once and for all*. One moderate-ish purchase and I never need worry about whether the camera is a boatanchor again. Unless I forget both of them. In which case I deserved to miss the shot.

* Until the battery dies I suppose.

How I use the product:
Insert into the camera. Press the clicky buttons.

Things that are great about it:
I can shoot lots of photos. I'm less likely to forget the battery.

Things that aren't so great about it:
It doesn't magically charge while the camera's off, it's not a cold fusion breakthrough, it doesn't cure cancer.

Before I begin the review let me get 2 gripes out of the way.

1. This review is for the battery but the charger for Fuji is awful. It requires their giant cord attached to the charger which is bulkier than the charger itself. Why they cannot just have a flip out plug is frustrating, instead we have to lug this massive cord around. See below for my hack on this issue...

2. The life of the battery is for about 350 shots. Which is ok but when you compare this to the thousands I can get from a larger DSLR it leaves much to be desired. Yes, it is a smaller battery compared to a full DSLR battery but I find it difficult to believe they cannot get more from their batteries. When smartphones, computers, and competitors are excelling in battery life Fuji seems to have focused less on this part of their system (which is odd because I love the Fuji system!).

Ok, with that being said the battery is not terrible. I have experience using it for more than the stated 350 shot, not thousands more, but I have gone a couple days without a charge. I assume if you use Live View and burst or movie mode a lot it will take the charge down quicker. I take single shots focus with AF sometimes and Manual sometimes and for that style of shooting I have noticed better battery life. I shoot weddings with my Fuji cameras and the battery does leave a bit to be desired but it is manageable.

I have a kind of hack around my charger issue and I don't recommend it because I don't know if there could be a hazard to using it this way but... I use my Nikon DSLR plug adapter instead of the charger cable. It allows less bulk, I can plug the charger in without having a 50 foot cord wrapped all around the place and it detaches so I can charge my DSLR batteries easily as well.

Back to the battery: It is a decent battery and very small. The nice thing is I can carry a couple of these around and not add much bulk to my gear or when I am just casual shooting. If you shoot Fuji I would recommend adding a couple of these to your bag as you might need them on heavy shooting days.

    I like to carry a spare battery and bought this for my wife to do the same. Of course I carry her spare, and it came in handy yesterday when her primary battery was depleted.

    Works absolutely amazing in bright sunlight.
    I picked this up to use with my UVIR converted X-A1 for shooting infrared and it helps so much with composition

    It's easier to check for everything and anything in your frame

    The only downside is getting used to "sticking" it in your screen. Though there are options to securely attach it to your rear lcd, I find it better to have it on my body instead and just "stick" it when I need to

              Comments about Fujifilm NP-W126 Li-Ion Battery Pack:

              It's a battery. It works well. Relatively compact.

              Only con is the rectangular very symmetric shape makes it a little slower to insert the correct orientation. It has an obvious orange marker to make this easier and also a less obvious white arrow. However some batteries have some asymmetry in them (like a crease or a rounded side) to make it more obvious how to insert. This is a minor complaint. In addition, it is possible that the rectangular shape makes it more compact, which is important for a mirrorless camera system.

              There are off-brand batteries, but I always worry with batteries b/c they have potential to destroy your equipment if they malfunction (a very rare risk, but theoretically possible).

                                          After considering more affordable alternatives from wasabi etc. on @, I ended up sticking with the OEM batteries for my X-T1. As an X-T1 user, I've already spent a large sum of money on the body and lenses, and it didn't make sense to me to purchase 3rd party batteries. Fuji X series have an average battery life of just over 300 shots. I'd rather carry 2 extra batteries for a total of 900+ shots than to carry 4 extra batteries with almost the same amount of capacity.

                                              This came with my X-T1. Considering the capacity of this battery, I am baffled as to why it takes so long to charge (2.5 hrs!). I have had larger batteries for Canons, Sonys etc that has charged a lot quicker and with a higher capacity than this. Other than that, both battery and charger hasn't let me down.

                                                I have Fuji X-E1, and this battery came with the package. It is small sized, charges fast, and can normally take about 150-200 shots per charge.

                                                If you don't use the camera for several days, the fully charged battery will discharge somewhat fast(about twice faster). So I bought other 3rd party batteries as extras for trip, but none of them were as good as this. Sure the price was 25%-30% of this original, but so was the battery capacity and life.

                                                So I bought another original and so far this is the best option for me. The only issue is the price.

                                                    X-T1 is very greedy for power, so it is absolutely necessary to have at least one spare battery a day.

                                                    I'd rather prefer a more powerful battery for this camera, but there is nothing else yet.

                                                        Bought this as a second battery because one is not enough.

                                                            Before I begin the review let me get 2 gripes out of the way.

                                                            1. This review is for the battery but the charger for Fuji is awful. It requires their giant cord attached to the charger which is bulkier than the charger itself. Why they cannot just have a flip out plug is frustrating, instead we have to lug this massive cord around. See below for my hack on this issue...

                                                            2. The life of the battery is for about 350 shots. Which is ok but when you compare this to the thousands I can get from a larger DSLR it leaves much to be desired. Yes, it is a smaller battery compared to a full DSLR battery but I find it difficult to believe they cannot get more from their batteries. When smartphones, computers, and competitors are excelling in battery life Fuji seems to have focused less on this part of their system (which is odd because I love the Fuji system!).

                                                            Ok, with that being said the battery is not terrible. I have experience using it for more than the stated 350 shot, not thousands more, but I have gone a couple days without a charge. I assume if you use Live View and burst or movie mode a lot it will take the charge down quicker. I take single shots focus with AF sometimes and Manual sometimes and for that style of shooting I have noticed better battery life. I shoot weddings with my Fuji cameras and the battery does leave a bit to be desired but it is manageable.

                                                            I have a kind of hack around my charger issue and I don't recommend it because I don't know if there could be a hazard to using it this way but... I use my Nikon DSLR plug adapter instead of the charger cable. It allows less bulk, I can plug the charger in without having a 50 foot cord wrapped all around the place and it detaches so I can charge my DSLR batteries easily as well.

                                                            Back to the battery: It is a decent battery and very small. The nice thing is I can carry a couple of these around and not add much bulk to my gear or when I am just casual shooting. If you shoot Fuji I would recommend adding a couple of these to your bag as you might need them on heavy shooting days.
