    has anyone been able to find a replacement/additional charger ..

    and Note 3 has fast charging

    for that we need appropriate wall charger AND the USB 3.0 cable?

    I have tried a few and all charge it very very slowly ..

    OEM is like $40

    anything cheaper?

    all the other chargers I tried - charge 3x longer!!

    I bought an Accellorize USB Folding Wall charger @ Walmart for $9.99. 5V 2.1A, let my Note 3 drain to 10% battery, then I started to charge. 90 minutes later I was at 100%.

    Today I saw some OEM Samsung 2A wall chargers with the USB 3.0 cable on eBay for about $10.

    You don't need a USB 3 cable to charge - only a mini USB. I use a standard wall charger as well as a car charger that I have for my Blackberry (uck - work issue) and it works just fine. Charges at a good rate.

    The phone charges fast anyways. Just use the stock charger. you can get them cheap.

    I find good microUSB cables feel a lot more stable/secure in the phone than the Samsung USB 3.0 cable, which always feels a bit... loose/with a lot of jiggle.

    Probably why they didn't use it on the Note 4.
