Question Charger

Okay, I am not sure how I did not notice this before but this is my 4th Android phone and all have used the same style port for charging. Which meant I could still use the same car charger for all of them.

The Note 3 has a different port... Car charger recommendations?

You can still use your USB micro charger. I use an old blackberry charger. Not very fast but it gets the job done eventually.

I picked this up on Amazon as well as an extra Samsung 3.0 cord.
Amazon.com: BolseŽ 4.2Amp 20W High Output Turbo Charge Dual USB Port Car Charger for iPad, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4, etc.: Cell Phones & Accessories
I'm new to Android but have discovered you do need 2.0 amps plus if you want to charge rapidly. I first used the "normal" charging system but discovered quickly it was not strong enough and took forever to charge.
Just got this in the mail from Singapore.

I suggest reading the USB 3.0 thread
Spec that nobody is talking about...USB 3.0 B
