Is this Galaxy S5 battery bigger than a regular battery?
This battery is twice the capacity of a regular battery. To fit in all that power, the battery is slightly thicker than a regular battery. Your old back plate and existing cases will not fit the new battery size. After a few days or even hours you will adjust to the added weight.
Is this Galaxy S5 Extended Battery Compatible with Quick Charge or Fast Charge?
Quick Charge is not compatible with our extended batteries. They are high capacity batteries and require a full 8-10 hour charging time, each time you charge them. We don't recommend using Quick Charge, the high charging voltage may damage your battery long term.
How long should this Extended Battery for Galaxy S5 last?
Our extended batteries are twice the capacity of your original battery. But in terms of actual hours, the average user sees about 8 hours more battery life than your regular battery. Other more battery conscious users have received 40+ total hours of battery life. It depends on charging habits and your smartphone usage habits.
