Last weekend I was doing a lot of shooting with my X100 and I stuck one of my four batteries in the BC-65N charger overnight. Got up the next day and noticed that the green light was blinking. Put the battery in the camera and it would not power up. Took a second discharged battery and put it in the charger and got the same result. Then I took the charger off the wall socket and noticed that the green light stayed on. That was very odd.

I figured that the charger had failed so I looked at B&H for a replacement and found that they were $49.00 there http://www.bhphotovi...er_for_the.html Took a look at ebay and found a non-OEM charger that was sold by a dealer with good feedback and thought that I would take a chance for $9.00 with free shipping. http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1439.l2649

Got the charger last night and charged three batteries with it. It seems to work well but does not seem to charge as fast as the original BC-65N charger.

For some reason, Fuji's chargers are very unreliable. At the end of this article, it notes that they have a failure rate almost 10 times normal.
