Default Cradle for Note 3 with Otterbox Defender case?

Is there a cradle that will work with my defender case? If found this one, but not to sure of the credibility, so if anyone know other cradles that would work please let me know. I really would love one to work with the case.

Looks like it would work, the only issue I see is it's using a USB 2.0 connector and won't charge your phone as fast as USB 3.0. If it's just sitting on your night stand while you sleep, maybe this is just fine as you don't need it to charge quickly (USB 2.0 should charge it up full by the time you wake up the next morning).

I wish there was something like this but in USB 3.0. I might still get this because for what it is and what I said above, it'll work very well. The idea of setting my phone on a mat for wireless charging isn't that appealing because a cradle sits it upright where I can see it when it rings or gets a message.

Usb 3.0 will only give you extra charge current if you're drawing of a usb 3.0 port on your pc or laptop. Usb 2.0 will give only 500ma while you can get 900 off a usb 3.0 port. The biggest wall charger is only 2.1 amps and the phone will draw up to that much regardless of weather you use a usb 2.0 or 3.0 cable. It is the capacity of the charger that counts, not the cable standard. Since that cradle says it cranks 2 amps it will charge just as quickly as the Samsung charger that came with your phone.

You can confirm this yourself using any of a number of play store apps which measure charging current.
