I left my G3 on Charge for around an hour and when I came back the charger was making a high pitched noise. I took it out straight away and found out that it was the charger head making the noise, the usb cable was fine. Has this happened to anyone else? And does the official charger head charge the phone any faster? Cause I'd rather use a different one to be safe.

I have been using the Galaxy Nexus charger, it does charge it faster than the office charger.
If I recall correctly the Nexus charger Amp is higher than the official one coming from G3

I'm having the same issue. So annoying. Started to use my old S4 charger which works the same just minus the noise. I'm going to see if getting different charger will help.

Mine makes a very hard to hear buzzing noise sometimes maybe it's my ears. I have bad hearing anyway from the military but I swear it buzzes ever so faintly.

If you have bad hearing then I'm surprised you were able to actually hear that. Might not be as bad as you think (:

Any who, chargers and any other power converting devices(wall warts, things that don't use direct mains) sometimes regularly make very high pitched whines, mostly they are too high pitched for people to be able to hear it though. Nothing to worry about, it's a thing that kinda happens

It's just certain frequency ranges that I can't hear , really high ones in particular and some lower ones. But this make note of a buzzing noise similar to florescent lights.
