Default S5 charger

Can someone explain why there is 2 connectors on s5 charger? Can I just charge it with my note 2 charger? Thanks

Are there any advantages to that horrible looking thing?

Several!

The extra parts, that extend the micro-USB 2.0 connection, increase your data bandwidth (allowing faster data transfers) AND increase the amount of power supplied. That means faster charging! It's completely backwards-compatible with micro-USB 2.0, so any old accessories and chargers you have still work (suck it, Apple), but at the same time, it increases your options because there is now more bandwidth and power available.

Yes you need to buy a wireless charging back and wireless charger though.
