Charge That Battery, Quick!

The most onerous task any new camera owner has to go through is charging the battery. A little patience is needed, as the NP-95 battery that ships with your new Fujifilm X100S is not charged up and ready for use.

When the battery is in the charger, the charging indicator will be in one of three states:

  • On. Unlike those of many other manufacturers, the Fujifilm X100S charger's indicator lamp is constant green when the battery is charging.
  • Off. When the battery is fully charged, the lamp goes off completely.
  • Blinking. When the LED light blinks on the charger, it indicates a fault with the battery. Although this problem is very rare, using official Fujifilm batteries in the charger can help you to avoid potential issues.

Once the battery is fully charged, insert it into the base of the camera. Be careful here: The battery can be inserted in multiple directions, but only one way will work. Line up the contacts on the batteries with the contacts at the bottom of the battery chamber.
