Default Where to find oem Samsung charger?

I need one exactly like the one that comes with the s4 to fit my case and to have the same charging speed. All I've found was knockoffs on amazon so far... Where else can I get a real Samsung charger?

Seems to be a ton of Samsung OEM chargers on Amazon...

Amazon.com: Samsung OEM 2.0 Amp Travel Charger with Detachable Micro USB Cable for Samsung Galaxy S4 S IV, Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Win, Galaxy Star & Other Smartphones (Bulk Packaging): Cell Phones & Accessories

Read the reviews as they are mixed but most of the sellers do have OEM products when they advertise such, particularly Prime resellers.
Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

Use the 50% off coupon you get for registering your phone to get it from Samsung Direct or go to AndroidCentral.com's shop as they have the official charger there for $15

There are a lot of chargers out there that claim to be OEM, and even look 99.9% identical to OEM, but are not.

As said above, read reviews carefully.
Some re-pros are fine, and some are junk.
One thing you'll want to look at is how well they charge compared to a real OEM charger (charging current)

I bought a couple "claimed OEM" chargers from Newegg for $12.99.
They are not OEM but they are good copies, and the charging current is identical to the OEM charger, so that was good enough for me!
