    Default Note 3 auto 12v adapter

    I ordered a power adapter to recharge my Note 3 while traveling to/from wife's horse shows. Just arrived via USB from (some furrin' place or ta other). But the phone end does not have the complete USB 3 plug. Looks like it only has the wide half.
    Does anyone know if splitting the plug like that works? Don't want to electrocute my toy!

    Yes Works fine. You got the USB 2.0. Charges slower though.

    30 minutes for 3% - I could have just rubbed it for a few minutes to get that.
    good thing you saved some bucks though - lol

    It isn't so much the use of a USB 2.0 cable as the output of the charger. The Note 3, according to the Samsung specs, requires a charger with at least a 1.3 amp output. In practical terms that means a 2.0 amp output as the chargers generally come in 700 mAmp output, 1 amp output and 2 amp output. From my personal experience a 30 minute charge using my 2.0 amp output car charger would have brought the phone batter up to at least 40 percent.

    Try another - in the morning the battery level went from 39% to 45% in 35 minutes. In the afternoon from 14% (I saw a low battery warning) to 20% in 37 minutes. Then on AC at home, from 20% to 100% in 2 hours and 14 minutes. Bow the charger is labeled "Samsung, model ACADU10CBE, made in China, OUTPUT 5V/700 ma.

    So basically the Samsung wall charger which should be a 2 amp output charges 3 times faster than your car charger. I would guess the car charger has a 700 mA output for your results.

    I would suggest what you want is a 5V 5 amp input/ 2 amp output charger for use in your vehicle.

    Belkin Car Micro Charger. 1 USB outlet, claimed 2.1 amp output. $17.88 at Walmart.

    (I wanted the dual outlet design charger, 2.1 + 1.0 but it was $ 35.00).

    Note 3 charge was 23% at start, went up to 70% after 58 minutes. Still not 110/120 volt result but better.

    2.4 amp per circuit? Mine is 2.1. Obviously should work just slower than 110/120 VAC (boo, hoo).

    2 or 2.1 is just perfect. 😉
