MHL 2nd Generation Adapter (MHL 2.0). The Full HD 1080p solution for Samsung Galaxy S3+ smartphones - with no external USB power required!
Watch movies, play games and give slideshow presentations from the comfort of your Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5 or Galaxy Note 2 with this handy MHL adatper. Unlike other models, this fancy number no longer requires an external USB power source* and can charge your phone while connected to compatible MHL supporting TVs!
Utilising the advanced Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) via the special Micro USB port on the new Samsung GALAXY phones and tablets, you can now enjoy all the same content on any HDMI-compatible display in resolutions up to 1080p in 3D on supported hardware! The HDMI output simply mirrors the display on your smartphone just as you've always wanted. Some apps don't run in HDMI mode, but most media apps will do fine, including web surfing - as simple as plug-plug-plug and play!
Note: JellyBean 4.2.2 does not support MHL due to a software error. Please update your OS.

Question:With a power cable plugged into the side of this unit will it also charge the unit(Galaxy tabs 10.5)?
"All of our tests with this product were using smartphones, so we are unable to give you a definitive answer on whether there will be enough current to charge a large tablet."

Question:Hi, I have a 2013 galaxy note 10.1 GT N8010. It has a 30 pin connection. I have an adapter to make my 30 pin to micro usb. I have tested it and charges my tablet. My question is. Can I plug your micro usb to hdmi into my adapter and mirror to my tablet to my lg 6y inch tv?
"Unfortunately this is not likely to work, as a 30-pin adapter to regular Micro USB will probably be a 5-pin plug designed for sync and charge only. MHL 2.0 for Samsung Galaxy devices requires an 11-pin Micro-USB socket. To the best of our knowledge the 30-pin Samsung devices all required special adapters for audio and video output which have since been discontinued by Samsung and may now only be available second hand."

Question:Hi, will this work on a Galaxy A3?
"No. The Galaxy A3 does not have MHL support. The A3 has no wired video output support of any kind."

Question:Hi, If my TV does not support MHL, will plugging in a powered USB cable charge the phone? Or can I only use the unit for as long as the battery on my phone lasts?
"Unfortunately if your connected display device doesn't support MHL you phone won't receive charge I'm afraid. The connected USB Cable is to provide power to the converter itself and not to your phone so the connection will only maintain for as long as your current battery charge."

Question:Does this work for the s7? if not what does?
"No. Newer Galaxy phones no longer support MHL of any kind, and rely on wireless connections for streaming video - generally requiring a smart TV of some kind to communicate with. There are no cable-based video output options for the Galaxy S6, S7 and onwards."

Question:Hi there, I was just wondering if this product will work with viewing media from a usb storage device?
"No. This device is only suitable for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and other MHL-ready smartphones from the same era. It does not have any hardware for decoding video files from mass storage."
Have a question about this product?
"Very happy, thank you. It was disturbingly simple and well organised, especially considering the time of year. I will certainly be recommending Cable Chick to others."
