    I'm really surprised there aren't OEM battery chargers available.

    When I got my gnex on day one there were a ton of accessories available.

    I know eBay and Amazon have some knock offs, but the reviews I read said the external chargers were a hassle because they are universal and not specifically made for the note 3 battery.

    I've bought two OEM Samsung wall chargers meant specifically for the Note 3. They really do look as if they are the real thing.

    I'm guessing that's not what you meant.

    Thank you greatly. Sadly, they are sold out. At least I know they exists now, haha.

    Just buy the original spare battery and spare battery charger from Samsung and you will be good to go. This is what I did and I am never out of battery charge. Left the house at 1:30 PM and with heavy use it is now 10:25 I still have 47% left on the battery I left the house with in my Note 3 :) I still have spare battery that is fully charged. A spare Samsung battery is plenty good until you get to the next socket :)

    The reason there aren't a lot of spare batteries made yet, is because NFC was built into the Note 3 battery, so 3rd party manufacturers have to take that into account. But, there are some manufacturers that have already made non-NFC compatible batteries, if you don't want to wait.

    There was a the OEM extra battery kit available on ebay for a brief moment, but I believe it's sold out already. I'm just holding out until it's available directly through Samsung.

    I'm using a 16kmah i.Sound battery charger at work and it works just fine (and charges extremely fast). Great thing is it has 4 ports, so I just plug that in and connect several devices to it.
