Compatible with the Note 10.1!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aduro® Samsung Galaxy Tablet Extra Long USB Charge & Sync Data Cable (6.5 feet) USB to 30 Pin, Galaxy Tab 7", 8.9",10.1" (Personal Computers)
Yes, this cable WILL work on the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
No, it will not enable simultaneous charging via USB and PC sync mode, as the name awkwardly implies.
It's still a good cable to have on hand, as it is extra long and the cable that Samsung supplies with their tablets tends to be on the extra-short side.

NO cable will "enable" simultaneous data and charge mode. Computer USB ports cannot provide enough power for the tablet for operation AND charging, so when the tablet detects it is connected to a computer, it suspends charging unless it is turned off to keep from frying your computer. The way Android devices detect a high power charging port is if a pair of data wires are shorted together. Therefore, if a cable is made to trick the tablet to think it is connected to a high power USB charging port, data CANNOT work.

That is almost completely untrue. Yes, the computer USB port may not supply as much power as the normal charger, it will still slowly charge. In my experience, even though my Samsung tablet (Galaxy Tab 2) says it is not charging on the little icon, it will still charge, and eventually reach 100% - while it is on and operating, not even on standby. I see it right now as we speak, using this cable.
However, there is nothing special about this cable; the same thing happens with the original Samsung cable. But unlike this cable, the Samsung cable actually can transfer data; this one doesn't even indicate that it's connected by either the tablet or the computer.

So basically this cord is a charging cord, but you cannot do the data transfer you do with the default cord the tablet came with?
I do notice my tablet does charge when hooked up via USB, but yes its painfully slow. It charges at only a fraction of the rate that it does when just plugged in to a power outlet. But the cord is pretty short, so this seems worth buying to have an extra or longer charging cord.

In my experience with my Tab 2, this is exactly the case. I should say, though, that I suspect there is a possibility it may connect on some computers because it does try, but my only Windows computer is an old Thinkpad with XP that I use mainly for scanning and fax-modem. I have a somewhat newer desktop, but I run Linux, so no Kies software. However, normally it will work with Calibre and some other software, and doesn't with this cable.
To be honest, I rarely need to connect via a wire for data transfer. FTP is my preferred method when I need it.

I'm pretty sure mine will charge and data transfer with this cable. It has been a while, but I'm pretty sure I installed the Ice Cream Sandwich update on mine with this. Maybe not. I too rarely connect to a computer. I use Google Drive to share files. On the Tab 2, you can use a Micro SD.
An update to my comment about simultaneous data/charging... to make it more clear... If the tablet is off or asleep, it will charge SLOWLY from a computer port. That isn't simultaneous data and charge though, since it won't transfer data while off or asleep.

My 10.1 Note does not like to charge with this cable. Completely turned off and at 10% battery life takes well over 24 hours to complete a charge. I have had other cables (though they didn't hold up to repeated use) charged in a standard amount of time. I am disappointed with this one. It may be great for some of the other Galaxy Tabs though.

Are you crazy? This is the absolute worst cable I have ever laid eyes on. By perpetuating lies and promoting a product you know is bad you are a disgrace to humanity and should be ashamed of yourself.
