Halfords Half Price Cables - Belkin USB-A to USB-C £9

Seems that the link to get the cheap cables doesn't check that you've purchased a tech item and still applies the 50% off, quite a few to choose from on there.

Aren’t these grossly over priced to start off with?!!! £18 for the one you’ve used as an example?!! No way!!!

Poor use of "Glitch"
Is the glitch the original price?!
Its going to get cold in here pretty quick
hahahhaah
Removing the word glitch doesn’t do much, everyone’s had notifications and it still appears in your keyword alert feed...
Thank you op. Ordered some iPhone chargers for £4 a pop. Hopefully they will be better than the ones I usually get from Poundland

It takes 50% off at checkout . So click the deal, check the prices, and consider it 50% off whatever it says.
Glitch ? Yes. Deal ? No.
To be honest it's actually the correct use of "the g-word" as it was only meant to be 50% off when you buy another product, but it's taking it off anyway. The problem is so many people now have "glitch" set up as a keyword, and expect every single time it gets used to be for a ridiculously cheap item or free stuff (which rarely gets honoured anyway)

The real question here is whether it's good value or not, and judging by the responses I'm guessing it's not an amazing price (I don't know what they usually go for, although thinking about it I do need to get a spare one for charging my phone actually)

Great. I did the same off eBay once and nearly burnt the house down. The cable melted and was red when I noticed it. Still on and still charging.

Poundland ones appear safer but often only last a few days to a few weeks or month if your lucky.

I have no idea the quality of these but hoping they are better.
How much!!! Can get 3 for that off amazon, not belkin but would be as good!

If this happened with all these cheap cables pretty sure we wouldn't have any houses left by now, never paid >£20 for genuine Apple/Android cables just doesn't make sense

Great insight that
I used a cheap cable once. Life has never been the same since.
I would highly recommend the ones from here. They are very well made, and use cable thick enough to take the high current of modern chargers:

Yes, and as it is USB C, you should have checked if it has a resistor in it. Considering the price, clearly it does not. Good luck with your phone, if it has USB C, I am assuming is not cheap, so maybe you should think twice before using it.
Voted hot. May look expensive but this should be a good quality cable. It's usb c so you need a 56 k ohms resistor in it, cheap cables don't have it, so why take the risk to fry your phone or even worse, set something on fire? If you want a cheaper but safe alternative, look for Tecknet, I think I've paid about £3-4 and used it daily over the past year.
