Hi Guys! I was looking around on Amazon for a extended battery coz my stock battery is draining so fast. When the battery percentage is between 18% or 15% sometimes it turns off immediately (without the samsung poweroff log). So I found this battery in Amazon (sorry the pic is from ebay) and I'm thinking of buying it. What do you think? Is it worth to buy or not?

Heck... I did not think it was really possible! 1 thing I would want to really know, is what kind on "Protection" is out for something like this? Knowing, that "IF" the battery is larger, you need a new back side (Battery Cover)! OK, Now, needing a new Battery cover, also means that any sort of Case will not work at all !!!! So, what is really out there for protection of the S5?
I will be checking into this! Yes, already have been looking into a newer battery. SO, guess I might as well look into this sort of thing.
Only concern, is Protection of the phone, after a new, larger , battery cover!!

Sounds like your battery is pretty old. What is it that you actually do with your phone? I would suggest just purchasing a new battery instead.. I just bought 2 new batteries on Ebay for under $17. You can also get a wall charge to keep them charged, and change out at least once a month..

Im use my phone for heavy usage and I always play games. I even always use it when the phones charging lol so thats why my battery is screwed up. Thanks for the suggestion. 😀

Yes it comes with a new back cover and a phone case which is bulky. The only downside I think is it has no waterproof protection.

Personally I do not trust the so called waterproof protection.

I was gonna get a similar case. My S5 battery is literally from day one release lol its not bloated or anything since I use Device Control to down tune the CPU and GPU (Kinda like apple does with iphones) but I don't mind more bulk for better battery. Easier to hold in my opinion

I have a 6600 mAh battery made by Tothl Technology, model EXTS5 that I have used in an S5 for a couple of years. It has worked pretty well. Due to its thickness, it came with a replacement back cover, and it does bulk the phone up a bit.

I've a power bear battery/case 6800mah or 7200mah. I works more like à 5500mah battery but It works like a charm .
The 4 or 5 first charges are a bit long. but really do the job.
