Should I use non-Samsung batteries in my Samsung device?

Last Update Date : Mar 22. 2018

No, Samsung recommends the use of only Samsung–approved batteries in conjunction with the charger and data transfer cable supplied with your device.

Unapproved chargers and cables may lead to damage to the battery or device. Unapproved batteries may lead to damage to the device. 


Use of unapproved batteries may result in the battery expanding or catching fire.


In addition, for some models the battery includes the NFC (Near Field Communication) antenna. Using a non-Samsung battery where the model in question relies on the battery to have the NFC antenna built in to the battery may also result in the NFC function of device being non-operational.


Any damage caused by the use of non-Samsung batteries is not covered by your product's warranty.
