    Default Extra battery and charging case

    Has anyone else picked up an extra battery and charging case? I got mine in the mail yesterday, my G5 came with them as a promotion and taught me I really like it.

    I will say the quality of the charging case is no where near as nice as the G5 which I'm a bit disappointed about.

    Got them before I got the phone. OEM one works great. It did cost me like $52 but arrived in two days from Korea (!!!).

    I got mine, along with the V20 and official Quick View case, from Wonda Mobile seeing as LG haven't/won't release it in the UK.

    Seeing as the V20 doesn't have wireless charging I like the charging case because I can charge my spare battery, carry it in the provided case and quickly switch them out. Yes the phone is off for a short period of time but I prefer it to being attached to a cable and keep plugging it in/unplugging it.

    The charging case does look and feel a bit naf in white but I'm not too bothered about how it looks. It seems to charge pretty quick but the charge time is less noticeable when your phone isn't tied to the end of a charge cable somewhere.

    I kept the battery from my first phone (blown speaker) now I just need a charging cradle.

    The LG site is disgraceful in its inability to offer accessories...

    I did get one off of Amazon, though. It certainly looks real.

    Seems to work fine. I'm not sure if the cradle supports the super fast 3.0 charging (not saying it doesn't--just did not time it), but it does work well.

    Thanks. That very well may be real but all fakes look real so I'll wait for LG to offer one. It will cost me double but I won't screw around with lithium ion batteries. I want the real McCoy.

    Has anybody checked if Verizon has one? I trust them.

    Can't say I blame you, and I actually thought the same thing. But I do require a travel charger. From everything I see (including performance, as I've tried it), this is genuine. All I can say. I understand your concern.
