Where to buy USB 3 car charger & spare sync cable for S5

As you may know, the Note 3 and S5 have the new USB 3.0 Micro B ports.  The wall charger cable in the box is a proper cable. 

 

I would like to get a spare charging cable, and car charger.  I've checked at Rogers, Source, Best Buy, and can't find any.  There is no problem with the old USB 2, they will work, but data transfter if you plug you phone into your computer is MUCH slower. 

 

Also charging is said to be faster with one of the new type USB 3 chargers, although some say it doesn't make a difference with charging.  Perhaps it's that the new chargers are with 2100mAh output.

 

Here's a US stite that has them coming soon, but there are others with stock.

Here's a site with a good picture so you can see the difference:

Don't know why Rogers hasn't stepped up to the plate since they now sell two phones that use them.  So my question is, anyone know where in Canada you can order both a USB 3.0 Micro car chargers and cables?

Hello Harry_fine

I bought mine from a few sites. Here they are. I believe it seems like no carrier has them, not just Rogers. It could be that most USB manufactures are still making them seeing as only the Note 3 had it before The S5 got it too.

Try Canada Computers. This store seems to have every electronic part that I can't find elsewhere.

Hello FlyBoyJim


It doesn't sell USB 3.0 for cellphones. I tried 3 stores in the GTA when i got my Note 3. They don't sell car chargers for the Note 3 and S5 either. They are mostly for laptops and computers.

I am surprised the sales clerk didn't offer to order the items for you. They are very fast. Call them again. I am still convinced your USB 3.0 charger can be found there. Hang on, I'll call them myself. Get back to you in 20 mins...

Hello FlyBoyJim

I did the one in Scarborough and they said they don't sell USB 3.0 car chargers for the Note 3 or S5. You can't just get a normal USB 3.0 cable as its not the same as the ones found on the Note 3 and S5

You were right. Canada Computers doesnt have it here in Ottawa neither, nor will they order as its not on their order list yet.

Hello Flyboyjim

 

 

The only way they will be able to order it & sell it is if they get get the rights to sell it within their company & stores. They need to have the agreement with Samsung & the other OME's that make the chargers & distrubite them & sell them. This could be the reason why we do not see it at Rogers or any carrier yet.

 

I was looking for the S5 Battery pack ( Battery / Charger pod for extra battery) & only Crackberry & a few other places online sell them. Rogers said they may not carry it for another month. Same thing that Telus said as well.

Hello Flyboyjim

The OP already posted that in their first post & its not yet for sell. It says " This item is coming soon". This can mean within the week or weeks.

The OP is asking if anyone has bought one within Canada. It

 

EDIT - Found one Official from Samsung sold via Crackberry but its out of stock.
