    What is the best replacement battery for the Samsung Galaxy S5?

  2. At one time it would have been Samsung OEM, but given how long the S5 and its accessories have been out of production any genuine Samsung batteries will have been sitting around for a very long time and that's not good for li-ion batteries. Also some that claim to be Samsung will be fakes of unknown quality.
    Anker used to make one for the S5, I used one and would gladly recommend it but unfortunately they don't make it any more.
    So, I'd say look for an aftermarket battery from a reputable brand and seller with a lot of positive reviews. That's your best chance of getting something decent. Don't look for the cheapest price and avoid any batteries that claim more capacity than the stock one (2800 mAh) as those claims are almost certainly bogus.

    Yea, Samsung OEM batterys but most are fake and the athletic ones are degraded due to age. The slim line extended capacity are most often exaggerate the mAh capacity.
