    Hi everyone! psyched to be part of this community.

    I had this short usb charge cable that so far has been the ONLY cable that has efficiently charged my Note 5 through my car usb port, as well as being quicker through the home charge.

    I lost it, and as odd as this sounds for a computer programmer , i'm not sure what length it was but it was the shortest possible i believe , which i've heard may of had to do with it's success in the car.. don't know if it was usb 2 or 3..

    anyone that can shed light on this like
    - is there a common solution (cable type and length) that work well
    - what is the shortest length in actual size (i'm 99% sure it''s the shortest they make them, just don't know how long)

    would be very appreciated :)

    Welcome to AndroidForums.com. :)

    Most OEM cables are around 3' long, and seeing that your car's usb port probably isn't putting out as much power as a charging block it would make sense that longer cords wouldn't work as well. As far as brands, I've always done well with Anker. I believe the Note 5 still uses a Micro-USB port, but you should verify that first.

    P.S. I fixed the spelling error in your title. :)

    Hey thanks so much!! and thanks for correcting my spelling :) 3' means 3 feet right? i tried searching 3 inches and couldn't get anything..
    this cable was super small though it barely reached my gear changer from the usb... you're sure 3 feet is the shortest made (assuming you meant 3 feet with your notation) ?

    Yes, 3' is three feet. They do make shorter cables, I have some that are only 1 foot. The shorter the cable generally the better, at least so long as it is long enough to reach from the port to a convenient spot for the phone.

    3' is the abbreviation for feet.
    3" is the abbreviation for inches.
    @royh, save this for future reference
