    Picked one of these up online for my note 5, but it appears to be the non US version. Any harm in using it?

    Also, I haven't noticed it charging any faster than my regular wireless charger, but I've read that they don't ALWAYS fast charge (dependent on current battery change, etc.). Any thoughts as to whether it's safe to keep using this model?

    Thanks!

    Sounds like a fake they sell on ebay. Yes, It does always charge fast and is much faster than the slow wireless charging. Does it say thats it's fast wireless charging in the pull down notification when you put it on the wireless charger?

    It charges, but I haven't seen it say "fast charging". It does appear to be an actual Samsung unit, though. Has their sticker & model # on the back.

    It also has the "fast charge" decal. I notice that the writing on the sticker with the SN is in Chinese, though, whereas it's in English on my "slow-charge" one that was store bought.

    I've seen "non-us" models for sale, but I'm not sure if that's what I have, or if so, if it's safe to use them on my US device...

    Okay - here are some pics of the charger. Can anyone confirm it's a knockoff? If so, is it unsafe to use? New to the QI charging thing. Thanks!

    I can only see one pic. Can you upload a pic of the back of the charger? Also, did it come in a clear plastic?

    If you notice on the picture I uploaded it says fast wireless charging.

    What model note 5 do you have ? some don't work with the fast wireless charging

    Not sure why only one showed up... Here's the back:

    How do I tell what model Note 5 I have? Just picked it up 2 weeks ago.

    Edit - device info says SM-N920A, if that helps.

    Thanks again!

    Does anyone own the fast charger that can confirm whether this is a legitimate item (or at least if there are any dangers to using a knockoff)? Thanks again.

    Okay, you have an AT&T note 5. Sorry, but that wireless charger is fake. The real ones are made in Vietnam

    You can try and check if this is checked off

    Thanks! To be fair, I really can't tell where this one is made. Is the label inconsistent with the real ones? Any harm in using this one?

    Thanks again.

    Not that I've noticed. I didn't leave it on very long when I noticed the fast charge wasn't working for fear of damage.

    I also can't find the setting you screen capped... What menu was it under? I don't seem to have an "accessory" menu that I can locate...

    Here's a pic of the booklet that came with it. Obviously not from the states, but wondering if it's official Samsung...

    Can't tell. Doesn't appear to have a "made in..." sticker, at least not in English. Wondering if it's a Samsung product made for a different market, and if so, will it still work...

    Really weird... I don't have "accessories" under "system"...

    Also, just got about 10% charge in 20 mins from my bootleg "fast" charger... It's warm to the touch but definitely not hot. Thoughts?

    Thanks again.

    You do have AT&T right?
    Also, I guess it's fine as long as the phone isn't burning up..

    Quick side note concerning this issue - fast charge definitely works when plugged up directly to the wall using the supplied wall adapter, but there's no menu option to turn it on/off.

    Even if the wireless charger doesn't do it, the feature certainly works on the handset itself.

    The accessories menu item only shows up when you use one of their accessories (such as the fast wireless charger or s-view case).
