    Default 2nd Power Cable Needed

    Looking for a spare power cable for the S5. Anyone know where they may be available and what they may cost? Thanks in advance for the help.

    The USB 3.0 cable?

    I'm buy my cables at monoprice. IIRC it's less than $6.

    0 to 100% in about 80-90 minutes. It's a little more than 1% a minute for me. The only charger where someone comes over and says I need to charge my phone for 10-15 minutes and that literally can last them the entire night.

    I have also been getting about 1% per minute using the stock cable and charger.

    It all depends on how much load the phone is currently under while it's being charged. Putting your phone on Airplane mode will speed up charges a bit, turning EVERYTHING on (Wifi, Data, Bluetooth, location, brightness, etc) will slow charging times down
    I've seen everything from one percent per minute to 1 percent per 4 minute increment, it just depends on the load.

    You are 100% correct. The way I obtained the 1% per minute was to shut the device off for 90 minutes when the power level was 10%. At the 90 minute mark I turned the device back on and I was at 100%. Thanks for keeping us honest.
