    I think that's common. You can only use Samsung cables I believe. Something like that.

    False. I use some aftermarket ones.

    Not sure what's going on in OP's situation. I would say it's the cables.

    That's why I said I think not I was for certain. That's good to know then.

    yeah just tried a another USB base at work with the same cable and it works. Thing is with the other bases and wires it said it was charging but def wasn't. must be a coincidental thing. thanks y'all.

    The phone might require more amperage then the cable/setup can handle. (Edit, stock charger is 2 amps) If the setup does not meet the phones charging requirements it just won't work.

    Also might have to do with Qualcomms quick charge 2.0. I think only certain cables work with this technology.
