Hi,

I'm looking to buy a spare battery for my xe1. Amazon has 2 brands that have good reviews and cost 1/4 of a Fuji battery. Anyone here using Maxsima or ex-pro batteries? Or any other brand that you are pleased with.

Thanks,

Sorin

As many have noted, the Wasabi batteries seem to be good replacement batteries. They fit well and last essentially the same as the Fuji battery. One thing you should keep in mind is that the Wasabi batteries can be purchased with a decent charger. This is where the Wasabi may be better than the OEM. The Fuji charger is by far the least reliable charger of the major camera brands. Lensrentals stated the Fuji charger failure rate was nearly 10x the norm.
