    The end is slightly rusted and the phone won't charge. Why does it have the extra tip on it? What I mean is the smaller double part. Can a regular Android charger be used with it instead?

  2. Is that the white Samsung cable that came with it originally? If so the extra tip was for USB3 data but it only worked in very limited applications, for most uses the data transfer was at regular USB2 speeds. It doesn't do anything for charging and if it's rusty or damaged you can toss it and use a regular cable.
