Awesome! I called around to the “WeFixYourPhone” places and they told me that battery couldn’t be replaced in a Samsung S5 Active, or they’d replace it for $40 if I bought the battery. Battery $13.50 for a 3200 mAmp one, Amazon Primed it to me. And the 45 seconds to replace it is no joke. That’s all it took. It took longer to get the Otter Box off the phone.
