It looks like a Type A to Type C USB cable from the photo.

Dear house insurance, it would appear the recent fire in my house was caused by my phones screens popping out while charging which happened due to the battery being over charged, expanding,then catching fire. I was using a 76p charger from Gearbest in my £600-£1000 device which was not official in any form, though I did save myself a couple of quid.

USB Type C cable, 76p and Gearbest I would say don't go in the same sentance without it ending rather badly.

Hmmm yeah, correct me if I'm wrong, but most modern day devices have power delivery circuitry related to charging in 2 main places - the plug, and the phone itself... The wire is just a middleman, it carries power which the phone pulls from the plug.. worst case scenario, it results in a slow charge with this cable as the cable just can't handle more than like 0.5A or something, no exploding phones...

The £600-£1000 phone exploding was an outright manufacturing fudge up, which Samsung themselves admitted to.

Point being, yes expensive cables are better, but no, cheap cables won't blow your phone up.

Which you can use to plug into a socket or another device to charge your device.

Type C especially is notoriously unstable, current wise.

It's USB Type C which is a whole different kettle of fish.

I'm not sure why a random article on Google should carry more weight than one on here?

The person in question is a Google Engineer (from the Pixel team) and also part of the "USB Implementers Forum" who's work even lead to Amazon US stopping selling type C cables which do not meet the correct standard. I'd certainly rather take advice from him.
