Is the new "s" battery actually better?

If I use the new "s" battery in the X-Pro1 will I get more images before it runs low on power? Supposedly more efficient and lower heat than the regular battery but does it translate to any better performance for our older bodies?

Any better performance in cold weather - such as sub zero (f) temperatures?

Regardless of battery performance ... the bodies themselves are not rated for below zero temps. Not that I wouldn't try ... but I wouldn't expect much either. The battery itself is as you described ... I don't see any real benefit in traditional shooting without a vert. grip on the X-T2. I use both new and old interchangeably without notice ...

I have used the X-Pro1 at temperatures of 34 below zero. Battery life takes a hit but the camera worked just fine. Looking for better battery performance in all conditions and hoping the newer batteries might be the answer.

Same here with my Canon's. They're only rated to 20°F or something like that and I've regularly had them out in sub-zero temps.

Now that I've jumped ship and moved to Fuji I'm happy to hear that they do just fine in the cold.

My understanding is that the older cameras will not notice any difference with the "s" batteries. While they can use them interchangably, they will not benefit from the newer technology. just my .02

Does this work with xe2?

I am finding out how the battery life is really atrocious. I assume this is Becuase of back screen and evf?


Everything is relative.

My understanding is that the X-e2 does not benefit from the newer technology of the "S" type batteries. They fit and work fine just the advanced features are not utilized.
