Multi charging & data sync cable for microUSB, lightning & Note 3/4

The above cable in eBay is for charging only as it said: I've got a few of these charging cables
but none of them allow me to connect my Android/iPhone to the laptop to enable Internet

Anyone has any eBay link of one of these multi cables that could do data sync besides charging?
Kindly provide the URL/link.  In particular the lightning cable needs to work as I've come across
a few of these multi-adapter cables where the lightning plug doesn't even charge.  The microUSB
one so far has not given me any problem.

The plug for Note 3/4 appears to be the same as USB3 cable: can it be used for USB3's purpose
& for Note3/4 at the same time (for charging & data)

I was not able to find something on eBay that you have already found so I spoke with a representative on Live Chat at  They recommended this:

In the 'Specifications' tab it says
4 in 1 usb date charger cable
I asked the rep if that was a typo and should say 'data.' and they confirmed it was a typo and should say 'data'.

They also stated "If for any reason it doesn't work we'll be able to assist you with making sure a RMA and shipping label will be sent to you for any defective item. We ship our returns through UPS so we email you a prepaid shipping label."

If I was in your situation I would give it a shot to see if it suits your needs.  I tried to investigate finding an item that was as specific to your needs as I could, but if this cable option doesn't work I am not sure if one exists!

Anyway, let me know if you need anything else.

Any idea if the Note3/4 plug can be used for USB3 HDD data?

That item in newegg appears to be made in China : any eBay link that ships
free internationally will be great as Newegg will charge a shipping fee that
costs more than the item itself.  I'm based in Asia.

Hmm, none of those items you provided describe anything other than 'charging'...there are no indicators stating they can be used for data sync too.

To answer your original questions:

1. No, I cannot confidently say an item exists on eBay for what you want it to do UNLESS the seller states specifically 'this will charge devices AND perform data syncs'.

2.  No, I do not believe the plug for Note 3/4 can be used for USB3's purpose & for Note 3/4 at the same time (for charging & data).

Unfortunately, it does not appear such a device exists for what you want. :(
