Samsung teaches users how to recharge the Galaxy Note5 on the go
posted by Florin T. / Oct 13, 2015, 10:48 PM
As you'll see in the video (embedded below), you don't need to resort to sorcery or something like that to recharge the Note5 while away from a power outlet. What you do need, according to Samsung, is one its new Battery Packs - which, of course, are sold separately. Available in gold or silver, these Samsung Battery Packs offer 5200 mAh capacities, and cost $69.99 a piece.
While the Samsung Battery Pack is compatible with most devices that can be charged via a USB port, its highlight feature - Fast Charge - works only with the following Samsung handsets: Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 active, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and - of course - Galaxy Note5. Samsung says that its Battery Pack can charge these handsets from 0 to 50% in about half an hour.
A portable battery pack (be it made by Samsung or not) can be useful to have, indeed. Would you buy one? Or maybe you already have one? Let us know in the comments section.

Note 4 Is the Nokia 3310 of our times... A reigning king that will never be forgotten... The most ideal smartphone Samsung has ever made

touchwiz in Note 5 is much more optimized than in the Note 4, trust me on this. As a matter of fact, is a bit slimmer than Google Now launcher, if you remove the Flipboard from the first page. Is actually looking exactly like Google Now, don't believe the rest of the trolls that have not see it running yet. I think Samsung is learning from mistakes, but not always taking the corrective actions that the consumer expects; some examples from look&feel department: - they removed the circular desktop swiping (you no longer go from desktop 4 to desktop 1 or instance). FINALLY! - wallpapers scrolling: still not moving in the back, but they added an wobbling , iOS 8 style. OKish… - you can create folders on desktop by staking icons on top of each other. OK - on every touchwiz release there are new swipe unlock animations. Only 2 always, and these ones different from ones available in previous version. Would have killed them to keep the other ones as well I guess. etc.

FYI - The Note 5 even with a smaller battery, lasts longer than the Note 4. Just like S6 models last longer the the S5. The problem is, sine you can't carry an extra battery for the phone that fits inside, they simply made battery packs. Even though you all claimed every iPhone had great battery-life, every single model has had 3rd party battery packs. The way I see it, unless you are traveling, on outside taking lots of pictures and recording, I dont see a need for an extra pack. Let me speak from experience. When I went to Disney Parks this summer, I pulled my phone off the charger at roughly9Am everyday. We spent all day out and didnt get back to the Hotel most night until Midnight. I carried NO EXTRA battery, I carried no charger. I didnt make any calls, but I literally took over 100 photos per day, I did all my recordings in 4k every single day for 2 whole weeks I spent in Florida and my phone didnt die on me not once. NOT ONE SINGLE TIME DID IT DIE. NOT ONCE DID I NEED TO USE ULTRA POWER SAVING MODE. I only had it set on Power Saving Mode and that's it. We all know, recording any video, bus especially 4K eats battery. Even after more than 12 hours of usage on a few of the days, I still had between 10-20% battery remaining when I got to the Hotel. My wife had the Note 4 at the time and her battery never ran out either. The new Galaxies dont have worse battery-life...not even close. Considering the Note and S6's do way more than an iphone and still last equally as long or longer shows just how efficient Sasung devices are. After all, the iPhone 6S Plus, has less resolution, less cpu power overall, smaller display, less ram, less battery hogging features and yet it only manage to tied the Note 5 in battery run down tests. What does that tell you fool? It tells me that your phone with half the stuff my phone has, is only equally as good..yet I'm doing so much more. YOU BLIND @$$ Fanbois never see it that way because you hate facts that dont support your stupidity.

Why would I spend $60 for something I can easily get off amazon for $15 or less? Samsung you guys are pathetic. The Note 4 is the last good phone you have made.

Hope Samsung still doesn't have the balls to call iPhone users wall huggers'. And most still don't use these portable power packs.

Never considered one of these before but since this has fast charge it changed my mind. Although i still wouldn't use it as i don't need it and I'm always around a wall charger. My battery last me a full day on the note 5 anyway.

Why the heck they dont make it wireless charging ? there are so many wireless-charging powerbank around in the market. And of course they charge lower than Sammy

Way to go Sammy. Sell us a thin and light phone and then tell us we need a double weight battery pack with dangling wire to make it work. Makes me glad I'm in the UK so that I don't have to choose not to buy this throwback phone.
