    I always charge with my Samsung charger but now I get a message about "charging faster with the charger that came with my phone". I'm using the one that came with the phone so I'm figuring something is going wrong but also don't want a Verizon stock charger to replace. Anyone have this issue as I searched first and didn't find it?. Anyone contact samsung directly for a warranty replacement?

    I have a note 3 and have experienced the same thing. I had to buy a new cord at Amazon. Don't bother with verizon. They don't sell them. Here is the link.

    There's a thread on here somewhere about a bad batch of chargers being included with some Note3s. The solution was call Verizon, tell them the problem, they send out a new charger.

    Same thing happened to me. Called Verizon and was told a bad batch came from from Samsung. Verizon replaced the charger with their own brand . If you want a Samsung replacement you MUST contact Samsung Beware the Verizon USB 3 plug has more plastic around it so if you have to go through a case you may have to force it a bit. I have a Spigen case and the Verizon barley fits through it.
