Search for xinda on vipon, a few different type C cables for 99p delivered if you have prime.

Not bad for a branded cable on the High Street but like others have said, if patient, much cheaper available on Amazon and eBay - and the ones I’ve had have been thick, braided, good quality cables for around £3 (UK) or £1 (from HK in bulk).

You have to be very careful with unbranded USB c cables as they are supposed to carry upto 100 watts of power in both directions. Most unbranded cables from China do not meet that spec. I wait for the day you can buy from Poundland and like Micro usb and iPhone lightning cables now all available for £1. The cables from Poundland all meet specs and you can sue Poundland or B&M if they cause an accident

100 watts... you need to familiarise yourself with this stuff, seriously...It’s a USB-A to C cable, it’s rated for 2-3A max at 5V. 100W cables are USB-C to C and supporting power delivery (PD) for this both direction stuff. 100W over a USB-A would need to carry 20A current and would have to be very thick gauge.

If it a short cable it does not have to be very thick, only of pure copper conductor wire not aluminium wire or alloy . But for long cables they need to be thicker copper to keep resistance and heat losses down where quality is very important.

Why are you telling me this? I’m well aware of what cables are needed, you don’t seem to be however. 100W max limit is for power delivery spec and the cables you’ve posted aren’t PD cables so my point about basic cables from eBay/Amazon stands.

Do you have a deal on these long pure copper PD cables

I saw these are quite thick . You are the one who posted to buy £1 cable from HK with no warranty. Read your first post above

No, I didn’t ‘post’ anything. You started going on about 100W cables which these aren’t, nor what I’d said either. If you don’t understand what USB PD is (and it’s pretty obvious you don’t), then this whole conversation is pointless.

I’m starting to wonder if it’s possible for you to say anything without getting everyone’s back up - whether it’s cables or imported mobile phones without band 20 support..

Has anybody else seen these to confirm they are USB-C to USB-C? The title isn't clear and the picture on the OP is not only sideways but looks like it has been taken on a Fisher-Price Camera showing a blurred price label of either £3.99, £12.99, £4.99 or £7.99. There is no sign of a £5.99. I think I am coming to understand why Sam posts these odd deals now.

The image shows it’s a USB type A to type C (as in, your traditional USB male plug to the new small type C). The one just above the 3.99 label, it also says micro USB but never mind... the one below seems to be a car kit with charger and micro USB cable and the other seems to be a micro USB cable with an adapter that goes on the end to convert it to Lightning. It looks suspiciously like exactly the same style of cable I got from Poundland last week (and in fairness, it does the job just fine - being a micro USB and Lightning in one). I’m pretty sure there are no USB C-to-C cables for sale, they’re pretty specialist as it is.

Can someone please educate Sam_of_London the basics of taking a photo. My neck hurts!
