I like the design of this charger better than the factory charger, as the cable is the regular micro USB and it is removable. That makes this charger my portable charger. I keep it in my laptop bag that goes everywhere with me. It charges just the same as the original and also connects to the computer and lets me do updates and downloads just the same as the original. All this and cost lots less. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but I did not get the screen protectors promised in the description. Still worth the money, but not completely as described.
