Default Shorted Micro USB Cable?

Looking for a cable that will quickly charge my Note. I had read previously that these cables need to be "shorted" in order to charge at full speed. Are there any available that come this way?

Go to a mobile shop. Ask for a shot cable for your Note. There are cables of different length available in the market.

Haha, I think we are confusing definitions, I am not referring to length but to wiring which allows the cable to charge the phone faster.

I tried the shorted cable technique. Caused my usb input on my phone to go haywire for about 2 weeks. I thought I was going to have to replace the usb board but it rectified itself somehow. I purchased some extra OEM samsung cables from ebay and they work great. They are even the 5ft version that came with an S4.
