Was on my way to the store to buy a charger no rep was available to assist me so I started playing with the s5 demo phone and noticed they were charging it with a USB 2.0 so basically they're lack of service saved me 25$. Thanks At&t

USB 3.0 charging is much faster though.

yeh no doubt, I can't believe how fast this thing charges. My i777 was so slow to charge full, maybe 3-4 hours? S5 is like just over an hour or so to 100%, much faster then even our iPhones which were only a little quicker than i777. I thought i remember someone saying on older Androids Sammy and others like capped the current or something, at least on the i777 and other Sammy phones that's what people were saying, which is why it was so slow to charge even on a wall charger as it was capped too. Not sure of the truth there, but USB 3 and S5 is blazing fast charging for a 2800mh battery.

This is only on laptop's that have USB 3.0.

If you have a 2 amp charger it will charge it at 2 amps regardless of connector.

I am using my note 10.1 2014 2 amp charger, charges just fine and just as fast.
