So you charged the note with it in one hour?
Isn't there a limitation on the current the charger outputs while charging?

I didn't charge the Note. I originally posted this in another section for another phone model if you follow the link. I posted the thread here cause Note owners would get benefits from this charger in quicker times. I do like this one better than Apples 2A charger. Hp's is sleeker, compact and comes with a 5ft cable.

Every phone charges slowly from PC USB port, right?

Do you think this would be safe? It's a cable that is designed for portable hard drives, to give them enough power. Maybe it would give the phone too much amperage (?)
My quick research finds that a typical PC USB port (and for sure Mac) has 500 mA power, so if you used this cable with two inputs, you'd be giving the Note 1000 mA which is basically like the wall charger, so it should be safe. What do you think?

I've used it for 4 full charges and the battery stays cool but charges fast. No problems to date. It's been a great find.

Well, i have been using the charger that came with my Galaxy tab wich is 2 amp, since atday one.
No problem at all. It charges in little more than an hour.

I also have been doing this for more than a year with mi exiphone and the charger from the Ipad.
Maybe in the long run the battery life suffers, but i haven't seen anything like that. And honestly, waiting two and a half hours to get the phone charged via regular charger and ready to go me is not an option.

Going to order one right now and give it a try.

Does anyone know of any car chargers that can charge at about the same speed?

Wow, crazy.
Would you be willing to install Battery monitor widget and show me the log file during charging? Just curious to see the rate of charge (i.e. during the start and end, as it slows down)
