With today's high-draw equipment, there's no substitute for genuine OEM camera batteries.

Yes, you'll pay more for the OEM battery straight from Fuji. BUT you'll also:
- Get a battery that lasts far longer per charge
- Get a battery that lasts far longer in terms of working lifetime
- Get a battery that won't swell up and explode in—or get stuck in—your expensive camera
Voice of experience—get the real thing. The clones are using generic spec cells, rather than compliant with the particular power draw requirements of the camera, and they're missing protection features that prevent the battery from doing damage to your equipment when it wears out.
Seriously, you'll have to buy three generic batteries (for the same total price, no less) to get you as many shots as one genuine battery, which means multiple switches throughout the day, and in a year your three generic batteries will have to be replaced because they won't hold much of a charge any longer. That is, if they don't swell up, get stuck inside your camera, or worse.
It's not worth it. Get the real thing when it comes to power.
