I won't use anytything large extending from imho fragile µUSB B port in fear of accidentially damiging it.
Thats why I use an extension cable where a 90° connector just barely extends from the Note e.g. DELOCK 83104 or if you want no cable DELOCK 65473
Then add a Delock USB2.0-Stick with micro SD Slot. They are available from 1 GB up to 32 GB (DELOCK 54276).
Together its not larger then the various USB-A & µUSB-B Sticks, but safer for the Notes fragige µUSB-B port.
