The charger and battery is working well so far and I am very happy with it.
followups were prompt and helpful.
I did note in a previous Email that the dimension of the replacement battery is slightly different from the original.
Slightly fatter but works well.
other than that this is a great piece of kit.
i needed a spare battery as i use the phone as a gps when walking,
being able to charge a battery without having to take the phone apart makes things much easier.
it's well made and genuine. looks like it's built to last.
The product is genuine, value for money and very good.
The only downside is that this kit does not include a cable . I admit I was disappointed slightly and I had to order this separately .
I thought about an extra large battery but apparently it would require an expanded back cover for the phone and none of these have the hard front cover that I currently have and like so I decided to get a standard battery instead, hoping that 2 batteries would ensure that I had enough charge while out and about.
I purchased the new battery with the charger as it seemed to make sense to be able to charge the spare battery while the other was working in the phone. So far it just about does what I thought it ought to do with 2 frustrations:
It doesn't come with a cable so you can't charge the extra battery and the one in your phone at the same time which is frustrating (and a big problem if you've lost/broken your charger)
It comes with no instructions and seems to vary between a solid red light and a flashing orange light, and it sometimes (eventually) gets to green which I assume means fully charged. I emailed MobileFun for clarification and apparently both orange and red mean charging (why it needs 2 colours to say the same thing I don't know). It also seems to take forever to get to green and there's no way of telling how much longer is required to finally get there.
So, all in all, it has ensured that my phone stays operational throughout a day with no further charge (if you change batteries part way through) but you do have to be organised enough to get both batteries charged before you head out.
This is also easier for use as you can put the charger on the side and can continue to use your phone without having to keep it plugged into the wall.
Next thing I noticed was that instead of getting a good 20 hours out of my original battery, both original and the battery in this kit were only giving me ten hours each, despite the indicator showing full charge when the battery was returned to the phone.
Then sometimes i would return to the charging battery after a few hours expecting it to be charged and an orange light would be flashing on the charger and the battery when put in the phone would show that it hadn't charged. This was a fairly frequent occurrence.
If I took one battery out and put another one in straight away, the orange light flashed. it required a few hours could down before I could change over batteries.
This list of faults started to get on my nerves, for a very expensive charger it was really not performing as it should, so I returned it.
BIG BUT...as soon as I tried to charge my phone as I had done previous to my use of this charger, it charged to 35% and would not charge any more. As soon as I unplug my phone it rapidly discharges, rendering my phone useless.
I tried my dads charger that I had used previously to charge my phone and it didnt even register that it had been plugged in.
Two and a half days on and I have no response from either mobile fun or samsung and my phone wont charge above 9% now.
THIS KIT HAS RUINED MY £500 phone (yep i paid full retail value).
Made my life easier.
