Try Screen Timeout Toggle. Great little app that worked for me when I needed this feature while on my Note 2.

I ended up installing an app called "Stay Awake", which worked in theory, however, after 5 seconds the screen adjusts to the dimmest setting which is nearly impossible to read unless you are in a dark room.

Without that app running nothing else works to keep the screen on during charging.

Anyone solved this issue yet?

Thanks
The setting is under the developer options screen. (If you don't have developer options enabled go to settings->about device and tap on build number about 10 times. (half way thru tapping you'll see a pop up telling you how many taps are left))
