Fujifilm NP-W126S Lithium-Ion Battery for X-Pro1, X-E1, X-M1, X-A1
About this deal
The Fujifilm NP-W126S is a high performance lithium-ion rechargeable battery which provides users with long term use and repeated charges. The Fujifilm NP-W126S is recommended for X-T2 in conjunction with the Vertical Power Booster Grip to allow 30min of 4K movie recording. I don't think you will see any difference in the X-Pro2 because it was not designed to be take advantage of the features of the NP-W126s. For all versions of Fuji X ILCs except for the X-T2, the NP-W126 or the NP-W126s is the correct battery to use. For the X-T2, the NP-W126 will work if you don't use 4K video. Apparently the cheapest aftermarket batteries fail pretty bad, but fortunately many brands offer pretty solid competitors to the original batteries. They often have almost the same capacities and also heat management under a heavy load seems to be alright.
I haven’t done any rigorous testing in this area, so far I’ve just tried to put all the brands to a fridge for few days, but haven’t measured any significant loss of charge. Even when not used for a long period, none of my batteries suffered any significant discharge. Battery aging I also used my thermal camera, Flir One for Android ( iOS version exists too), to capture batteries after a heavy load. While the original battery shows mostly evenly distributed heat on its surface, the noname battery has much higher temperature in a smaller rectangle in the middle. This might be the reason for swelling of some batteries. Self-discharging Suitable for models including the Fuji X-T2, X-Pro2, X-T10, X-E2S, X-A2, HS50EXR, HS33EXR and HS30EXR digital camera models.in., 3690k-dot OLED viewfinder; magnification 0.75× with 50 mm lens (35 mm format equivalent) at infinity and diopter set to −1.0 m−1; diagonal angle of view approximately 38° (horizontal angle of view approximately 30°)
This issue isn’t that serious on new Fuji cameras (like X-T2 or X-Pro2) since their indicator is more granular and even percentage can be shown. Older cameras (X-T1 or X-Pro1) offer only 4 states of the indicator (Full or 3 bars, 2 bars, 1 bar and Empty). Based on the chart we can deduct how much of the battery remains when there is a change in the battery indicator: I'm not sure that any camera, except the X-T2, has the correct circuitry to take advantage of the NP-W126s.fujirumors.com– JJC is offering a practical (and cheap) dual USB battery charger for Fujifilm NP-W126/S batteries Fujifilm X-A1, X-A20, X-A2, X-A5, X-E1, X-E3, X-E2S, X-E2, X-M1, X-H1, X-Pro2, X-Pro2, X-T10, X-T100, X-T2, X-T20, X-T3, X-T30 and X100F But what happens to my current OEM and Watson NP-W126 batteries if I upgrade to an X-Pro2 or X-T2? will they die a slow death from the extra heat generated in the new camera or just discharge a lot faster?
Can I charge NP-W126S of the X-T30 with the charger of X-T1 (BC-W126) or do I have to buy a BC-W126S ?
