Alternative Power Supply for such as XE-1/XE-2/X-T1 and others ..
Aug 11, 2014

Just browsing on Ebay UK for an item quite different and happened to come across this.. what could be another way to power up over a lengthy period one of the mentioned cameras and others.. Doesn't seem quite an economical way compared to using just a spare battery..but in some cases of course it may be quite impossible to CHANGE a battery during such as a long continuous Intervalometer recording or anything similar.
It doesn't give much by way of illustration as to exactly how it works.. but the presumption is that the Battery contained in this is of course actually used in-camera as a replacement for what you would normally have there.. the attached lead then going to an in-line regular AC charger to give it more or less permanent power as long as you want.
I can't see othewise than the fact that you must need to have the camera Battery/Card cover door then permanently open .??.. whether or not that could be a problem is perhaps one consideration. It IS a positive and "permanent" replacement for purely Battery use of course.. as NO change of Battery is needed ... I suppose it's not an answer to most usual needs for extra power (change of Battery) but for a more lengthy and static need.

Haven't seen it anywhere else though - seems to be a production of the German firm who advertise it.
