if you put in the code it takes it down to 8p
Hot thanks

7 pence with paypal
Why wouldn't you? Got to be done. Thanks OP! 8p for me.
Thanks. Just what I need.
Managed so far without one, but at that price! Thanks OP
9p for me, feel ripped off
7p
Are there any risks with this? I know that cheaper connectors can damage your device.
Super Hot. 7p Yay

Not really, it just converts the connector, it doesn't draw voltage or anything.

No idea. Just ordered it. You firstly risk 7-9p.
I had some of these off ebay and found them to be terrible. About about 5 and they didn't fast charge. They also bend very very easily. I ended up just opting to buy replacement cables and chucking the adaptors
Thanks OP , 8P but when use paypal says 7p

Actually I don't think that's true, these adaptors do need to have some circuitry in them. Search Benson Leunge reviews and you'll see its far from simple. They seem to have at least a resistor in and some don't have the correct one.
Expired. Will keep an eye out, a code for some smart bulbs expired but started working again a few days later

Probably worth not it then...
Make sure it has the pull-up resistor inside to protect your gadgets.

Not true. Amazon actually banned a load of these cheap adaptors due to the damage that non-approved ones can do.

One of Google's engineers, Benson Leung, has been testing out a selection of the USB Type-C cables and adapters that you can buy on Amazon (thanks Ars Technica). Worryingly, a high percentage of them aren't fulfilling the USB Type-C specification, particularly the cheaper ones. Leung has been leaving bad reviews for the offenders on the respective product pages.

So far, Leung has tested 10 of them, and only three have passed. The Belkin, the iOrange-E, and the Frieq cables are all good, but they are more expensive, up around $20. There are cheaper ones available, but of the ones tested so far, they just aren't up to snuff.

For the most part, the third party USB Type-C cables have been fine for charging smartphones, but using them on higher powered devices (Leung has been testing them on a Chromebook Pixel) probably won't be useful. In fact it might even be harmful to some of your devices if you try.

For example, Leung said that with CableCreation's micro-to-Type-C adapter, "your phone, tablet, or laptop computer may attempt to draw 3A, which may be more than the micro-b to A cable you attach to this adapter may be able to handle. This may cause damage to whatever cable, hub, pc, or charger you plug into this."

The reason behind the problem is mainly to do with how the cables handle going from a Type-A to a Type-C connector. In the example above, the cable was only using a 10kO resistor, when it should be using a 56kO.
