    OK, so the wall charger out of the box is 5.3V/2 amps. Since I don't really want to shell out $40 for another OEM Samsung charger for work, are there any reliable 3rd party chargers that can charge the S5 at full speed? Thanks!

    It's only 1.0 amp.

    I like the Anker 8a charger, it can charge multiple devices at full speed. It is around $26 on Amazon.

    If you want the official Samsung, use the 50% codes floating around.

    I just got two cables at radio shack. They were $26 each, I am using one for a car charger and one at work. I can't tell a difference between these and the Samsung one

    Why not just get a USB wall wart and use a regular USB cable?
    Amazon.com: Slim Wall Plate and Surge Protector - 3 AC + 2 USB - Add Additional Outlets and USB Ports While Protecting Your Devices - USB Includes 2.1amp Output to Charge iPad, iPhone, E-readers, Android, SmartPhones, and More: Electronics

    Some of the cheaper ones with a single USB port are ~$5. Just make sure you get at least 2A output on the USB.

    I'm going to try one of these. I have something like it for AC and have a bank of ones in the main family Jeep to charge everything but think this will work better and be a bit more streamlined
