I noticed today that you can use a normal micro usb charger to charge our not3. Just plug it into the right side and it works. I'm not sure if this has been posted anywhere else but I tried looking before posting this.

Although it works I don't feel like it charges nearly as quickly as came that came with the phone, but it works just fine if that's your only option

Well I have about 20 micro usb cables lying around but only one note3 cable. This way I can take a cable with me in my work truck and not be worried about messing up my main one. It seemed to charge just as fast for me.

The one that came with it is 2 a so if you are not using one for a tablet yes it will charge a little slower. .. USB charging is where the new one really flies

Hey nothing wrong with getting excited with a feature. I was so pumped when I figured that out.

My Note 3 cable went junk, and is not covered under equipment plan. So this is my favorite option for now.

" A USB 2.0 port is able to deliver 0.5 A of power while USB 3.0 is able to output 0.9 A. This means two things: USB 3.0 devices are able to charge faster and USB 3.0 ports can support more power-hungry devices.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 is the first phone in the world with a USB 3.0 port, making it ideal for comparing USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 charging speeds.

We first connected our Note 3 to a desktop computer's USB 2.0 port and recorded the time it took for the phone battery to charge from 0 to 100%. The same process was then repeated with a USB 3.0 port and a wall charger.


Charge Time

USB 2.0
7 h 48 min

USB 3.0
5 h 8 min

Wall Charger
2 h 15 min

Take-home lesson: If you're using a desktop or laptop computer to charge your devices, then USB 3.0 will save you a good chunk of waiting time. However, USB 3.0's improved charge speed still pales in comparison to a wall charger (Note 3's default wall charger is rated at 2.0 A)." -'Build Computers'
