With more and more brands and their devices switching to USB-C, like some smartphones and notebooks, sometimes we will need a USB-C to USB-C cable for connections without further explanation on its good reasons. While at most times we only have USB-C to USB-A cables for example. Undoubtedly, it’s always handy to have a spare or two. If so, below are the USB-C to USB-C cables we personally recommend.

Straight from Google, this cable can deliver up to 60W at 3A and get up to 480 Mbps at data sync speeds with USB 2.0. While, the price is a little expensive than some of the others on the list. Right now, Google offers two length options, 1 meter and 2 meters to reach you need.

This cable is also a great value and offers rapid charging or syncing between two USB-C devices. It supports 3A/60W charging, allowing you to replace the original cable to charge New MacBook, Chrome Pixel and Nintendo switch, etc. Same with the former two picks, this cable has limited data transfer speed of 480 Mbps at most. It’s a strong cable with solid, anodized-aluminum casing on the connectors.

If you need one cable that can do both fast charging and fast data transfer, this is the one to get. It supports up to 5A/100W charging, surely capable of charging any USB-C laptop at maximum speeds. With gaining support for Thunderbolt 3, you’ll be able to capitalize on data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps and connect to a DisplayPort-enabled USB-C display, allowing for 4K resolution. At the same time, its 2-meter length fits seamlessly to any desk environment. Featuring all of these points, this cable is more expensive than most USB-C cables.

  • Length: 0.2 meters
  • Warranty: 12 month
  • Price: $9.99

Any replacement for the capable Belkin USB-C cable? Yes, we got one, from DockCase. DockCase is a brand dedicated to designing docking solutions exclusively for MacBook. Designed and manufactured based on MacBook accessories, this cable with E-marker chip, can deliver up to 100W of power at 20V/5A. And with USB 3.1 Gen.2 speeds of up to 10 Gbps, it moves data as fast as a USB-C port will currently allow. It feels sturdy for flat cable design and well-built, a bit of length is worth sacrificing.

If you are seeking a cable for charging phones, tablets, and laptops up to 60W, the best pick will go to Anker PowerLine for its good price; If you have higher requirements on charging speed and data transfer speed, Belkin with Thunderbolt 3 technology could be added to cart; or at this point but with limited budget, you might prefer to the DockCase USB-C to USB-C cable.
