I tested it with Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3 and it worked without plugging in its charging cable. It works the same way for the Note 4 and S5, that is without charger.

We also have the Note 2 in office and it worked fine too. You just have to use a charger along with the MHL cable.

The Samsung MHL 2.0 HDTV Adapter supports full 1080P 60 FPS playback on Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3 and Note 4. You can also play games on big TV screen. In fact we connected a wireless controller with our Note 3 and all worked wonderfully. It transformed my Galaxy device into a portable play station.
