I found the same thing as you when I bought a unbranded USB to Samsung data cable off eBay.

Samsung's own USB cable has a feature to tell the charger how much current it wants. A third-party data cable doesn't support this feature, so the charger supplies less current (and the charging takes longer).

Previously posted and not in all Poundlands, took a visit to 3 diff ones in the East Midlands before finding one.

Technically it's also not a deal, as it's the standard price for a poundland item, ie a pound !

Yeah not in my local one (Ipswich) - they had the style of boxes for other accessories, but not this unfortunately.

I thought these were not to charge but to connect USB devices. I have an OTG for the nexus and only use it to view external USB drives.

Yes this is to connect USB memory sticks not for charging.

Small word of warning though, Android 4.4 and later has new security protocols that make working with external USB sticks a lot more difficult.

I've just updated my phone and I'm even having problems saving things to the memory card .. Anything other than fixed internal memory is now restricted from being amended by apps ... I'm getting nasty Apple feelings .. :-(

cheers, not updating my tablet now.

Thanks to Harry Fenner and others for pointing out that these are not the same as the OEM lead - this site is fantastic - not just Hot Deals.

lead is still fine as a spare.
