Dual Charger Slow??

Recommended Posts

Hey gang- I just received my X-T4 and Dual Charger last week. I charged the first battery that came with the camera in the dual charger to see how it worked. Had it plugged into my USB hub and it took hours to get to 50%. I then plugged it into a high speed Anker power brick, still took about 5 more hours to get to 100%.

A few days later, I received my 2nd battery and I thought I'd actually time it. I put it on a different Anker charging brick and different cable in my studio and it started at 20% at 11am and got to 90% at 5:15pm. 

Does that seem like a super long time to you guys? Is it possible that the charging cable wasn't USB C to USB C and that could be why?

My Fuji dual charger arrived on Monday (along with a second battery for the X-T4).  It was very close to an hour for to fully charge that battery from 20%.

A cable with less capacity could absolutely slow the charging time. My results came from an Apple Thunderbolt 3 cable I keep on my desk, not the cable provided with the X-T4.

You need proper USB-C to USB-C charging cable and a powerbrick at least like Fuji's AC-5VJ (rated output 5.0V 3.0A 15.0W) in order to use fast charging with the dual charger.

    • Shame, you should seriously look at Capture One as a) you don't have to pay for it, the Fuji version is free to users of Fuji. b) Capture one really does not have a big learning curve at all, people make out it does, and it put me off for a long while, and then I did it and it was great. It has a tool to import and covert your existing LR catalogue (whilst preserving the LR catalogue) c) There are options to configure the view and workflow to ape LR as closely as is possible to he
    • As well as any other camera. Its fine till you go below the auto focus low light threshold which I believe is -5, in practice I have not found it to be a blocker for flash photography outside or in studio, which is where I use them, YMMV
    • So after all your requests have been answered favorably by Fuji with the X_t4, have you bought one?
    • I have been using my XT4 quite a bit lately--mostly making outdoors videos, but also some family/portrait shoots.   One strange thing that I've noticed:  After setting up the display exactly how I like it, the EVF will display histogram, level, and battery level (among other things).  However, when I am just looking at the back screen, these 3 items are not displayed--UNLESS I turn off the AF!  As soon as AF is turned off, histogram, level, batt level appear on the rear screen exactly where
    • Fuji gave us the X-Pro3 for still focused users, no? Personally, I'd sacrifice AF for IBIS and if Fuji had more OIS lenses, sacrifice IBIS desires as OIS is close enough. Just too useful with environmental portraits. I have the GF45-100 primarily because of OIS.
