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.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Excellent
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made.
Be VERY careful how you remove the battery from the charger - the thin, brittle electrical contacts will snap off with a whisper (which actually happened to me) and can't be fixed. That said, if you use the indented area to remove with your finger tip and consistently pull AWAY from the contacts (NOT perpendicularly) you can keep using this as an external battery charger for a long time (I repurchased a couple more chargers & batteries after having already bought two batteries with the first one). The best thing about this charger is the ability to also use it as a cell phone internal battery charger by separately buying a USB cable that inserts into the bottom of this charger (Radio Shack has one that rolls up the wires). This way you can simultaneously charge both the phone and spare battery. Also convenient is the size and folding AC plug, which makes it portable and comfortable for your pocket. When doing this, I wrap a rubber band around the spare battery that I leave in the charger, BUT make sure you completely remove the rubber band before removing battery (else the perpendicular exit that snaps off the electrical contacts).
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.
