Hello,

Has anyone come across a dual battery, or rapid charger for the NP-T125 batteries?

Thank you in advance.

Haven0't looked yet, but considering the size of battery, a dual charger would be a good thing to have.

I have searched the Net, but have yet to find a dual charger.  There is a definite need for same.

I shall probably buy a second official charger.

 

I like the idea of the X-T2, the grip is a charger also, I have only used it as a grip once or twice. Neat idea to have a grip/charger.

Two Fuji chargers would appear to suffice, however, they are agonizingly slow, and require two outlets that are not always available simultaneously in travel locations.

As for the Xt2, I have been using Sony's A7r, series cameras but have never been happy with the menu based settings requirement.  Fuji, on the other hand, offers the functional dials (body and lens) that I find more satisfying and useful.  And while I primarily perform landscape photography, the 24 MP sensor is more than adequate for same, particularly since I've acquired the GFX 50s.  That said, I am waiting for the XT2s release before dumping the Sony.

True they are slow at 2 hours per charge or therabouts. Only need one outlet I always have a suitable adapter with me.

I see now the grip also like X-T2 is a charger too, but for only 1 battery. So no real advantage to just buying a second charger.
