After a few years, Rich needs to get a new battery for his S5 and he can only find used ones. Leo says it sounds like nobody is making them anymore. Beltran and IFixIt both offer new batteries for the Galaxy S5. You can also go to the Samsung Factory Outlet.
Jim is blind and wants to know if there's a mobile phone that offers replaceable batteries when it dies. Leo says no, those days are gone. But the good news is that external battery packs are the thing now and they can charge several times before he'd have to recharge them. Leo likes the Anker PowerCore 5000 for about $20.
Pamela got a replacement Galaxy S5 phone from Samsung, but it came with no battery. Where can she find one? There are reputable third party battery makers out there. Leo says that she can look to Amazon for it. Pam is also due for an upgrade. Should she get an Samsung Galaxy S7? Leo says that the S7 is much better than the S5, but it doesn't have a removable battery. The camera is remarkable, though. Another option is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, but the Galaxy S7 is the phone of the year.
Kelly has an old Casio Brigade phone, but it can't hold a charge anymore, so he got a new Samsung Galaxy S5. But when he's out in survival training, he isn't much of a fan of the battery life. Leo says that the battery life isn't all that great, but the good news is that he can swap out the battery. He should buy a bunch of spare batteries and then he can swap them out in the field. And he can even buy a solar charger and charge them up when not using them.
