    Hi,

    just curious if they're the same (i.e., rapid charging), just use different cable.

    OK they're different model #s

    s5: EPTA10JWE

    Input: 100-240V ~ 50-60Hz, 0.35A
    Output: 5.3V=== 2.0A


    note 4: EPTA20JWE

    Input: 100-240V-50-60 Hz 0.50.A
    Output: 9.0V--1.67 A or 5.0V--2.0

    Slight difference with output; excuse my ignorance so will using the s5 wall charger wear the battery on the Note 4 due to the higher output voltage on the s5 wall charger? My guess I won't get the "rapid charging" benefit as well?

    Nope, the Note 4 has rapid charging while the S5 doesn't.

    Nope, it will not wear down the battery. It'll actually be limited to a 'standard current', which is why you can connect any USB charger to the Note 4 without issues. It will cap the current at 2.5A, I believe, unless you're using the rapid charging one, which then bumps up the voltage. As you mentioned, using a 'standard' charger like the one from the S5 will only mean you'll charge your phone at 'normal' speeds.

    Oh, OK, so I guess it's the "9.0V -- 1.67A " that gives it the rapid charging? lol i know im being annoying...just curious

    No such thing as 'annoying'. All questions need an answer, right? I'm just glad I can help

    Yes, the 9V/1.67A combo is used for Rapid Charging, and the 5V/2A combo is used for 'standard' charging. You can use the Note 4's charger on an S5 or any other USB device and it will default to the latter, limiting the current depending on the device. I use it all the time to charge my tablet With how fast it charges the Note 4, it leaves time for it to be used elsewhere hehe

    Lol last question I promise...will any USB cable do or do u need a specific one (eg the one that comes with the note 4) to take advantage of the rapid charing?

    You can use any cable as long as it's not a cheapo one or a very long one. Cheaply made cables can lose power if they use crappy materials, and same thing happens with VERY long cables (try connecting two or three USB extenders and you'll see hehe).

    I have recently purchased a note 4 but the specifications on my charger are exactly same with that of s5

    Its model no is ETAOU10IBE
    INPUT 150-300VAC
    50-60Hz 0.35A
    OUTPUT 5.0V-2.0A


    It charged approx 40% in the 1st 30 mins but after then got really slow and taking nearly 4hours to charge the rest.


    Is there a problem with my charger or phone or both?

    Hello! PLS tell me What's the difference one (wall adapter) input - 0.35A another input 0.50A ?

    Well, I wouldn't call it a "problem", but you did not receive a "fast charger" with your Note 4, so it's only ever going to charge at normal speeds. I would contact the person or vendor who sold you your phone and request the fast charger, which should ALSO be rated for 9V @ 1.67A (fast charging happens by upping the voltage to 9V, allowing more power to flow into the battery more quickly).

    If you bought it used and/or the vendor is unresponsive, you can easily buy *ANY* decent quality charger that supports the Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 specification. You don't absolutely need a Samsung-branded charger, as long as it is a well-built charger from a manufacturer with a good reputation. Anker, Aukey, Tenergy, Incipio, and of course Samsung themselves all come to mind as viable options. If you are in the US, Amazon sells good-quality fast chargers for about $10-15.

    One can consume more AC power than the other. That may mean it can produce more DC output power, or it may mean it is less efficient.

    If you are asking if the input amperage has anything to do with whether it is QuickCharge or not, then no - it does not. The OUTPUT amperage and voltage determine that.

    Hello
    Which produce more DC output power? Which less efficient?? Here pictures they have exactly same output

    For a phone that does NOT support adaptive fast charging (QuickCharge 2), it doesn't matter - the 5V output on both chargers is 2A. That is 10 Watts, which is about as high as most standard 5V chargers go, and about as high as most phones can take.

    For the Note 4 or another phone capable of doing QuickCharge 2, the 9V @ 1.67A supported by the one on the left (the Chinese one) will charge your phone faster. 9V @ 1.67A is about 15 Watts.

    Note that those are maximum input amperages. Since the QuickCharge 2-capable one is capable of producing 15W of power, if that 15W is being consumed the charger would be consuming more power on the input. The one on the right only needs to pull .35A because it only needs to produce 10W of DC power. So efficiency is about the same.

    All things being equal, I'd take the one on the left (Chinese one) because it is perfectly capable of charging non-QuickCharge devices at the same speed as the one on the right, but can also support QC2.
