Re: Third party batteries
In reply to goloby, Apr 3, 2014

I bought Watson batteries and charger along with my X-E2 from B&H.  Watson is a B&H house brand so I'm confident that if anything bad happened due to the battery B&H would take care of it.  The batteries perform identically to the the Fuji battery.

The batteries for the Fuji are very basic, no chips or electronics onboard.  That's why the battery meter is so unreliable on these cameras.  Unlike with most DSLRs, there's no advantage to buying the branded version batteries for X-cams.
