Got my new X-T30 - Free Battery - No battery charger :(

Just picked up the X-T30, opened the box, where is the battery charger?

Looked at the manual - in camera charging now

Looks like I will be looking to buy a separate charger

Just in case UK customers are not aware your entitled to an extra free battery

Oh my, even Fuji go cheap on providing a charger.

I recent got the Nitecore charger:

https://www.nitecorestore.com/NITECORE-FX1-Charger-for-Fujifilm-Camera-Battery-p/chg-nite-fx1.htm

Super fast charging and it charges two batts at once.  But it also requires plugging into a USB port.  I've one of those Anker USB chargers, with 2 USB QC 3.0 ports and 3 2.4A high current USB ports.  The Anker is a great charger, it never even runs warm.

Theres definitely one in the X-T3 - I presume with the lower price point of the X-T30 they also had to cut the box contents down too.

You can easily pick up one from Amazon though - the Ravpower dual one I picked up comes with 2 batteries (still the S type but of a lower capacity) and seems to work just fine with charging  (I have the same type and brand for the Sony one previously and this performed fine too). Charges via microUSB so means I can pack lighter and the spare batteries work in a pinch too as backups. There are a couple of brands that do similar and seem to be reliable - I have found Ravpower to be fairly consistent as well as Expro in my years of buying batteries for various cameras.

I can second the Anker multiport chargers being good - I run the same thing on my travels and its great for charging everything from Phones to camera stuff. Just need to carry a couple of cables on top for what you need to charge.

I think your battery charger is missing!!

At BH, the XT 30 box contents, the charger  is  listed!!

Check with your dealer .

Best regards,

Nope, it does not come with one.  I am in the UK if that makes any different.

This is what the manual says

Come on Fuji... luckily over the years of owning Fuji cameras I now have 2 spare Fuji chargers, oh well. Now patiently waiting for my Fuji XT30 charcoal with free(almost $99) silver WR35mm. Anyone know why the charcoal isn’t shipping till June 30th?

My theory is that they gave all the charcoal cameras to previewers.

I have the Wasabi dual charger, which is available on Amazon.  $12, compact, micro-USB and it works great.

Got one of these for a previous brand along with 2 spare batteries and was very pleased.

I need to clarify my first post.  It comes with a charger but it’s an in camera charger and not a slot in type that comes with the x-t20

I'm still waiting on my x-t30, but for me the in-camera charging was a big plus.  I already have bunches of usb c cables for charging my phone, so its compatible with my existing infrastructure.

I agree, especially for traveling. I always carry a 10,000mAH power pack as a backup an it would be nice to be able to use this on my camera in a pinch.

I'm wondering how fast the X-T30's in-camera charging is versus the external battery charger.

Good thing the battery has been around long enough to have a lot of reliable third party battery charging options.
