I bought a bunch of micro USB cables from monoprice.com (some 6 ft and 9 ft) so that I can charge my Note 2 in the car or in the house. Here's the strange part, sometimes the cables work (as in the Note 2 starts charging) and sometimes the Note 2 does not get charged at all. Exactly the same cables used with my sons Galaxy Nexus never have any issue. As soon as I plug in my sons phone to any of the cables, it begins to charge. Simple and straightforward. With the Note 2, it appears to be so finicky, I just don't get it. The port is a universal micro USB and I'm using the OEM wall plug, so why should the cable not work in my Note 2 but works with other devices? I have a Nexus 7 tablet, and I don't have any of these wacky issues with that either. Anyone else experiencing this? Is this some weird bug in the software on our Note 2's????
