In comparison with smartphones equal, (handheld) digital camera batteries have seen little or no innovation, and lots of battery fashions have been round for years, if not a long time.
The Nitecore UFZ100 is a 2250 mAh designed to switch the 2280 mAh Sony NP-FZ100 battery and has an built-in USB-C connector, and a charge-level LED indicator (3 ranges).
Many customers will discover this extraordinarily handy, particularly informal customers who want one or two batteries at most. For instance, I can carry out my photographic work with a single battery. The identical is true for brief video reporting if the recording was well-prepared.
Customers who want 3-5 batteries may discover utilizing a traditional multi-battery charger extra handy. The draw back of those giant chargers is the potential house they occupy in a backpack. Additionally they use proprietary connectors, which is an issue if the charger is misplaced or unavailable.
Whereas I like this Nitecore battery design very a lot, I want that they had positioned the USB port on the backside of the battery dealing with outwards as an alternative of getting it on the “stomach.” That manner, we’d have been in a position to preserve the battery linked to energy throughout net streaming occasions, for instance. As an alternative, we nonetheless have to purchase a dummy battery.
It’s additionally necessary to notice that the battery capability is barely decrease than Sony’s batteries (by 30mAh or 2.2%). That’s surely because of the inside house occupied by the USB-C circuitry. It’s a tradeoff that I discover completely acceptable because of the additional comfort.
