Aukey is one of our favorite accessory makers as they provide high quality products at prices that aren’t too high. Lately I’ve had some hands on time with one of their latest products, a USB C to USB C cable. This 9.9ft cable is designed for use with devices like the Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P, the new Macbook, the Lumia 950, and even the Chromebook Pixel 2.
This cable is made for charging, syncing, and data transfer. It uses the USB 2.0 standard for data transfer and it’s safe for rapid charging on mobile devices like the Nexus 6P at up to 2.4A. In my testing I’ve found that this cable works great. It doesn’t charge quite as fast and the one that comes with the phone, but that is due in part to the massive length. Seriously, this is a really long cable. You’ll have no problem using this cable with your phone when it’s charging, you’ll need to worry about all the excess cable choking you.
At $7.99, this is a great deal. It works great and for the price there’s little to complain about. Most other third party USB C cables come in at about this price as well, but they are far shorter. If you’re interested in picking up this cable, you can do so at the link below!
