It is really a pity.You would be very careful when you are going to buy something from ebay.I always get accessories for my S5 from Amazon because of thier high quality.

Have you tried that one? how does it compare to the battery life you were getting with the one that came with your phone?

The numbers say it would be within 30 min of OEM...But who knows
SGS 5--AT&T--STOCK NO MORE! NAKED TOUCHWIZ!
NEXUS 5--AT&T--MULTI-ROM MYSTERY MEAT
 
Note II--AT&T--Note III port
SGS 2 Skyrocket--AT&T--Some AOSP project long forgotten
Atrix 4G--AT&T--The original fingerprint scanner
SGS Captivate--AT&T--Just root and heavily modded
iPhone 3G--AT&T--Jailbroken, hoping to be an Android
Nokia E61--AT&T--Burned, battered and bruised...literally
Nokia 6600--AT&T--SNAKE!!1!

DONATE TO ME
I've given up on anything "authentic" in Ebay. Bought an S5 otterbox and it was clearly counterfiet after I opened the box. Texture was completely different and didn't even fit my phone correctly. Got a full refund from ebay. One thing to watch out, these scammers, which they are, open multiple accounts and ship from China to a company here in US that will re-label the package with US postmarks. The scammers utilize ID theft to open accounts in other peoples names also, just a friendly reminder.

When I first use a non-NFC battery from Onite,it only last the same time as my 1 year old OEM battery,Then they told me to charge and fully drain the battery for the first 3 cycles,I follow their suggestion and it works,the battery can last even longer than the OEM one.
