Inexpensive replacment for NP-95 battery,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MaximalPower DB FUJ NP-95 Replacement Battery for Fujifilm FinePix X100, F30, F31fd, Real 3D W, Fully Decoded w 3yr warranty (Electronics)
I purchased this battery for my Fujifilm X100 because (1) the Amazon product picture showed it to have the identical "3.6V 1800mAh Li-ion" label as the official Fujifilm NP-95 battery and (2) it was 1/8 the price of the official Fujifilm NP-95 battery. Unfortunately the Amazon product picture is incorrect. The actual product shipped to me is labeled "3.7V 1800mAh", the same as all the other NP-95 knockoffs. Concerned, I measured the output voltage of this Maximal Power battery and the OEM battery. Fully charged, both were 4.1V. The OEM battery weighs 39g but this Maximal Power battery only weights 34g, so it's difficult to imagine that it can store the same energy as the OEM battery.

So if I have this straight, you are giving it a lower rating because while it works as advertised, it's lighter then the other battery. That makes a lot of sense. Would you give it five stars if it didn't work but weighed the same?

I gave it 3 stars because it's very clearly not as advertised.

.1 of a volt is not going to hurt anything, and if they work like the original, why complain?
P.S. - Weight is not a factor in how batteries work.

It's advertised to work in an X100, and it works in an X100. Therefore, it's as advertised.

Correct about the .1 volt not mattering much. Li-ion batteries fully charged sit at 4.2v/cell, which means it may have just been an issue with the charger cutting off prematurely, or even ambient temps. The MAH rating is the capacity.

I agree that the 0.1 volt is completely insignificant. However, Amazon does have an issue with misrepresenting merchandise here and elsewhere. The photo should match the shipping product.
