Works great! I really need this as my battery runs out before the day is done. I have one back up battery that I keep in the charger until I need it and then just swap them out. A must have if you use your Galaxy SIII all the time like I do.

It works as advertized, but be warned, it is extremely slow. It will take about 16 hours to charge a dead battery to full. With frequent use, my battery in my phone discharges faster than this charges my other battery. However, since it is an external charger, in most cases, you shouldn't need it to charge very fast. And they're so cheap, I bought 2 which makes it even easier to keep at least one battery fully charged at all times.
My Galaxy phone will no longer charge thru a USB connection. I have 4 mths till my contract is completed so it isn't worth repair. I tried a generic wall charger that didn't work as advertised so I bought the INSTEN charger. This charger brings the battery to a full charge quickly. Because the Galaxy battery is so easy to remove and replace it is as easy as using a USB port. I also picked a 2nd battery, which is very cheap for the S III so I have near zero phone down time due to a low battery. Would definitely recommend.
This handy charger saved the day. It charged my battery within a couple of hours providing me with an extra battery at all times. I gifted it to a friend. I am ordering another one. I also ordered the Samsung battery as well. Since I have a lot of apps on my phone it drains my battery. This has been a godsend and answer to my prayer. It is compact enough to take with me when I travel. No longer do I have to worry about locating a charging station. This is my own private charging station. This allows me to have one charged battery at all times.
