I recently bought a Samsung Note 8, but all of my "spare" cables at home are "standard" USB 3 cables. To charge, or transfer data, the Note 8 needs a type "C" micro connector, which, by the way, is a godsend (no more worrying about putting it in the right way!), and I needed one more cable for my in-car charging adaptor. Based on my prior experience I purchased this Belkin cable and it has been a reliable performer ever since. I expect to get many years of service out of it before needing replacement (like other Belkin cables I own). This is a great value for your dollar!
