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?

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.
