I do not believe in 3rd party batteries because the OEM are inexpensive vs what the camera costs.

I don't get trying to save $20 when you easily spend upwards of $1,000 or more on gear.

Fuji doesn't make batteries. They just slap their logo on someone else's. So what's the point?

Your money do what you want.

I want to know that if anything happens to the camera that it ever needs a repair I can eliminate a 3rd party battery issue and voiding of any warrantee issues.

It is such a minor expense when you have at minimum over 2K in just a camera and one lens that $20 is that big a deal.

OP has an XE1 so the price difference is around $50 between a Wasabi and Fuji branded one. If he's anything like me and likes to keep around 4 spares for that battery eater, that's almost $200 bucks more.
