    Has anyone had any experience with this system?

    It is a 3200mAh battery (which Samsung calls standard to the S5...) that comes with a charging case. This case holds the battery while also giving it a way to charge it without using your phone. I believe the charger takes a micro USB, though I don't understand why seeing how the S5 uses a USB 3.0 charger that can handle USB 2.0. But I didn't make this product...

    I think it is a really cool idea and I am about to jump on it, as it is around $40.00 on Amazon, down from the $50.00 on Samsung's website.

    If you have any experience with it, please share!

    Be careful that's it is not a counter fit battery...

    I appreciate the concern, and I definitely shared it before I bought into it. The reviews are 1 1-Star, 3 2-Stars, 9 4-Stars, and around 35-40 5-Stars. The only one star review was a guy who didn't know what he was talking about, calling the charger an HTMI mini 3.0, and the listing never said anything about a charger. Same way with the 2 stars. So it seems legit. And I made a mistake, the 3200 mAh was for the Note3 battery, not the S5.

    Just saying to be careful, a lot of fakes out there. If I were to buy the Samsung omega charger with battery kit. I would buy direct from Samsung VA anywhere else to be safe...

    I bought one back in June . It's setting on my dresser . I picked it up when I was going to Watkins Glen for the weekend . Didn't end up using it . The camper had outlets to charge the phone . The Battery charger uses the cable and adapter from your phone to charge . Or you can also use any Micro USB2.0

    No worries, it all turned out ok, and a few things were mistakenly my fault. When I said 3200 mAh and micro USB, I was looking at the Note 3 system on Samsung's website on accident. And I agree with the buy from Samsung's website approach, but the reviews seemed to pull me in and despite the risk, it did turn out ok. But thanks guys.

    I bought one for my S5. I have 3 batteries now. I leave one in the charger as a spare and take 2 with me always. I use my phone as a tablet too since I went back to school. When I get home I switch them and always have a fresh battery in my phone. It's much better than having an external battery since I have a fresh battery in about 20 seconds instead of having to wait for the battery to charge. It really comes in handy when u get home, get dressed to go out and pop in a full battery.

    It doesn't over charge the battery like the aftermarket chargers do.

    The slightly different part number isn't a concern. If you bought it directly from Samsung then it should be authentic. Somewhere else out depends

    I wouldn't buy a Samsung extra battery kit from eBay. Too many fakes going around.

    I'm with the other folks suggesting to try and get your accessories from legit sources as often as possible. Samsung stores are the best place to get your gear from.

    But they are the most expensive places too. Full retail pricing sucks!
