​i also have got one from eBay which has worked fine since November last year.

I have 2 of these, really good quality and good reviews.…HS6

bought a Anker(?) from Amazon, was something like £4. works perfectly for both S8 and transferring video from my GoPro

I've bought over 10 relatively cheap corded ones from Amazon and all have been good. It's the connecting plug unit that is more important to get full benefits of type C rapid charging capability.

about time another manufacturer has join the type c revolution, welcome!

Being an owner of a Nexus 5X for almost 2 years, you know what products are good or not. I use this one:…c=1

It allows for quick charge too

adapters are 2 for 99p delivered on eBay.

I bought these aukey cables are three superb, 3 for a tenner.

AUKEY USB C Cable to USB 3.0 A Nylon Braided 1M [ 3 Pack ] Grey Data Transfer & Charging USB Type C Cable for the New MacBook 2015 ,Nexus 5X, Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 3, Huawei P9, and more USB C Supported Computer and Tables…J5E

If you don't want to compromise on charging speed then don't buy an adaptor. Buy a quality cable. Aukey is a very good brand and I will also recommend them.
