    I'm looking for a spare battery and charger for my S5. I'm seeing some batteries are NFC capable and some are not. I need some one to explain to me what NFC has to do with the battery and it's capabilities. I use NFC for my Isis Wallet and thats all but need to learn why it effects the battery.

    I believe it's built in so if you use it make sure you're getting the right one.

    I bought (2) the Samsung Extra Battery Kits because when I comes to batteries I just don't trust eBay and also had Wireless Wave 50% off coupons.

    Thanks for the help. I will get the battery that has the capability and in fact will get a true Samsung replacement. What I need to know though is the technical reason for the battery needing NFC capabilities.

    The NFC antenna is built into the battery, without it you don't have NFC capability

    This blew my mind. In South Korea every samsung comes with a spare battery and charger in the box. I bought my wife an S5 about 3 weeks ago when I was visiting and I was blown away by this. I went to the Samsung D'light store in Gangnam, Seoul, SK and paid 31 dollars for a spare battery and charger. It's been the best thing ever. I couldn't believe that every phone there comes with that in the box.

    I would pay a bit extra to have that here in the states. That way you could be sure you have a quality product in hand an not some garbage sold by Amazon.
