I was just to post about this but not about the question you asked. The cables currently available - Micro B USB to USB are really clearly designed for static use with drives. While the OEM one is fine, all the others I have been able to find are too rigid, too stiff. No good really eg in the car. I'm going to have to find some more flexible 2Amp ones.
The ones I have are a pain in the backside and there doesn't seem to be anything more flexible yet.
The other thing is unspecced car chargers are not what they seem. There are some on Amazon described as "for" the Note 3 which if you look carefully at the photos are actually rated at 1A and not 2A though the seller gives no current rating. So they are no good either.
