Fujifilm X100V with old NP-W126S Battery and Fujifilm X-T4 with Completely New Battery

Hey folks,

I just finished a dinner with friends, but before I go to bed, I thought I could publish a rumor that has just been confirmed to me, and answers one of the questions you had regarding the Fujifilm X100V.

Some of you asked in the comments to previous rumors, if the Fujifilm X100V will have the brand new battery of the Fujifilm X-T4.

Well, according to our sources, the Fujifilm X100V will have the classic old Fujifilm NP-W126S battery.

So, the brand new battery (which I remind will not even be the GFX NP-T125 battery) will be reserved for the Fujifilm X-T4 only, and of course only later find its way to future camera bodies.

Here are the main specs:

  • Powered by USB sources, can be used with AC adapter, laptop, power bank or car charger

  • Dual LED charging indicators : Indicate red when charging and green when charging is complete
  • The charger is also with overheat and overcharge protection to prevent damage on your batteries

Finally: Fujifilm NP-W126S Third Party Battery Available!

NP-W126S Vs. NP-W126

With the introduction of the Fujifilm X-T2 back in July 2016, Fujifilm also launched new batteries, the Fujifilm NP-W126S. Same capacity of the old NP-W126, but optimized for better heat dissipation, making them mandatory, if you really want to squeeze the most out of your X-T2 & Co without occuring in any overheating issue.

For the old NP-W126, there are several offerings from third party manufacturers. I personally use PATONA batteries (I think they are WATSON rebranded in USA, but I’m not sure), and I’m very happy with them.

However, not all third party batteries work as well as PATONA/WATSON. As tested, and we reported here, some third party batteries are so bad, that some called them to be a “fraud“.

NP-W126S Third Party

Back to our new NP-W126S batteries.

A FR-reader now spotted the PATONA Platinum NP-W126S batteries at Amazon Germany here.

UPDATE 1: FR-readers told us in the comments about the ecoEfficiency NP-W126S batteries available at AmazonUS (reviews at AmazonUS)

For a fraction of the price of the original NP-W126S batteries, the Patona Platinum battery should allow you to take the most out of your Fujifilm X-T2 & Co without occurring in any overheating issue. Here is the first feedback of the FR-reader:

Today I received 2 batteries and they are working perfect in my booster grip (without the camera internal battery)

UPDATE 2: Thanks to our fantastic community, we have more feedback about more NP-W126S third party options.

Unless you really want to sped 3x the money on OEM Fujifilm NP-W126S batteries, third party options are a great alternative… you just have to know which one to buy. And luckily here on FujiRumors, we investigated this questions here, so you can have a bit more feedback about which one to grab ;) .

Fujifilm X-H1 will use NP-W126S Battery of X-T2 + New Vertical Grip

Fujifilm X-H1

Given the X-H1 increase in size over the X-T2 (size comparison here), Fujifilm will also launch a new vertical grip.
