One of Fuji's unfortunate Design flaws is their small battery capacity, so you have to buy more batteries than other camera's.

I received the battery in good time and it does the job as we find out Fuji lost one on this camera with NOT putting a matching battery to meet the demanding needs of this camera, the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000, so now we need & have to be MORE battery conscious than what is needed do to Fuji's failing to get, design, supply the customer/user with a battery that have a "high-enough" or sufficient enough power reserve by having the needed and PROPER mAh capacity. As you find out the 1700mAh battery does not last long, they could have and SHOULD have used a 2200mAh or more battery for this camera design because by using the powerful Zoom and it's quick focus it is demanding much more than the poor Fuji designed factory/supplied battery can supply and what it was "designed-for" Folks. So having one or two extra batteries is not a luxury but a very unfortunate "necessity here. So these batteries function as do the factory/supplied battery.
