    Yes, you read it correctly: Your easy photo assignment today- take a pic of the x100s charger. (File under: duh)

    I rearranged my home (music studio) which also houses most of my cameras and either a part is missing, or I'm attempting to use the wrong charger for my x100s. It will light up the battery, but never charges. (BC-65). I read somewhere about people complaining about a plastic part, perhaps mine has gone missing. I assume that I can use a USB to slow charge the camera, or buy a cheap Chinese replacement that if it doesn't burst into flames, will do the trick. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mitch

    There's no plastic part for the X100S charger to hold the battery in or anything like that. Do you own another Fuji cam like the X-E1 or X-Pro1 you might be using the charger from? It should be labeled BC-65N for the charger, and it has the power cable port/plug on the right hand side rather than the top or rear like the X-E1 charger.

    the little piece at the top of jloden's picture #1 pops out. Does your look the same?

    There is also an issue with legit charger and SOME aftermarket batteries (I think) where the charger will light up when the battery is inserted and the unit isn't even plugged in (!).....there may be other issues with the Fuji charger and other 3rd party batteries.

    Yes that's the bit people were having to glue in to prevent losing. Even the charger is immune to Fuji's quirks!

    Thanks, that's what I have. Perhaps mine isn't working.
