What connector do I need

The charging lead for my Samsung Tab S has virtually gone. I think I need a USB type A to type B for it to work with the mains plug ?

If anyone can confirm and also advise a recommended lead that would be much appreciated....... I don't want something that will either fry my tablet or burn the house down

Most of the older Samsungs used micro USB cables

This. Most Android phones I believe use that connection and current Samsung's do. They also fit kindle, blackberry as well (one of the reasons I don't like Apple is their stuff only works with Apple!)

Take it you've not got a spare from any old phones?

I think it will be micro-usb (which all have type A connectors at the computer / charger end).

Brand wise, i like Amazon Basics and Anker for quality budget cables. You wont fry the tablet or house with USB 2 or 3, as its only 5 volts and low current.

USB C is the one where you need decent spec cables and where you ** actually could fry the tablet ** if you buy cheap cables, because of the much higher currant it is capable of supplying.
