    Is a usb charger the same as a data cable?

    Right, you know those multiple charger connection for phones in poundland, can they also be used as data cables?

    Thx

    multi chargers use 2 pins one negative one positive, data cable uses 4 wires (pins)

    Some of the do charge, but the majority don't. If your buying from Poundland then at least you wont be too much out of pocket it the cable does not charge your phone.

    I bought adapters from eBay to overcome this problem.

    the one in poundland is a charger, he wants to know if it can be used as a data cable

    Oh ok, I misread that. I think the same applies though.
