Samsung Galaxy S5 not charging (using portable charger)
So I just purchased an international model (900H to be exact) of the S5 and have a major charging issue.
First of all I'd like to mentioned that similarly to a lot of people who have purchased the phone in the UK, I have only received a regular microUSB, or USB2 cable, in the box. I don't mind that since I transfer the files directly to the and from the microSD card anyways as opposed to plugging my phone in my computer.
The problem is when I try to charge the phone with anything but a 2.1v output wall adapter. So it's NOT the cable that's the problem (I've tried mixing and matching) but the charging only initiates when I charge the phone with my the giving samsung wall adapter and my nexus 5 all adapter since they have a high output voltage for a phone charger. But it doesn't work with let's say, an iPhone 5 charger since the output is lower (as mentioned, this issue is present even with the official s5 usb cable).
ANOTHER problem though, and the biggest for me at this moment, is that it failes to charge with my mophie juicepack station (6000mAh) when it has a 2.1v output). This to me is a problem since I don't work at a desk and use the mophie juicepack station on the go several times a week.
If anyone has any suggestions or have experiences the same issue, please chime in to resolve this issue as it is not a minor flaw, considering it contributes as another problem to the already built up charging the problems people are experiencing with the S5.
Thank you guys in advance and I hope to hear from you all soon.
