    High-quality cable

    Purchased for use during travel. It’s much more convenient, as I can simply leave the original at home and keep this second one (and charger) in my laptop bag. Also, it’s always helpful to have a spare just in case one gets lost, breaks, or a kitten chews on it. BEWARE of cheapo, third-party USB-C cables - if they don’t have the correct resistance, they can literally fry your device! And that kind of damage isn’t covered by warranty. I always buy genuine Apple accessories for my MacBook Pro, and this one was actually less expensive on sale than some inferior-quality knockoff junk cables. This cable also works perfectly to charge my wife’s Galaxy S9, Nintwndo Switch, and other USB-C devices; and although longer than needed, will work in a pinch as a data cable for USB-C external drives as well. Note that this is NOT a Thunderbolt 3 cable and is NOT recommended for external PCIe devices such as eGPUs, for example.

    Thunderbolt 3 is AMAZING!

    I don't think that I have seen technology as amazing as this. Thunderbolt 3 knocks all of it's predecessors out of the water - which includes USB-C, Thunderbolt and 2, Lightning, USBs. Now, I recommend that if you have the new '18 MBPs, you can either hook your charger there, or get the adaptable wall plug. My iPhone was dead, and it was a full charge capacity in under one hour. I have never seen data or a charge move so quickly before. Kudos Apple. Downside... Dongles, Dongles, and more Dongles. APPLE - FAIL. However, to lead in industry standards you have to be willing to step away from the pack. Apple did this time and it's paying off. It doesn't mean though that it should be your ONLY option. Take the folks along with you on the journey, no need to force their hand into it.

    I have a 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and was experiencing problems with my 87 Watt power supply only delivering 60 Watts of power. As a result, my MBP's battery kept slowly discharging under load. Turns out, the problem was not the MBP or the power supply (power brick)... It was the USB-C cable. Apparently, not all USB-C cables are created equally and only specific cables are able to carry the 87 Watts delivered by the power supply. Once I purchased this cable, everything worked the way it was supposed to! I do not know if there are third-party USB-C charging cables available that would be less expensive. If you are having a problem with your power supply not delivering enough wattage to your 15" MBP, not having the right USB-C charging cable may be the problem. This particular cable fixed my issue. (I gave four stars instead of five because it is a little pricy for a USB-C cable. Apple branded, though, so that really should not come as a surprise.)

    I rated this cable five stars, simply because on its own merit its an extremely well built and sturdy cable that perfectly matches the apple design language and heritage. They've done a great job of making USB Type-C fit right in. My only knock on the cable, as mentioned in the review for the charging bricks, is that the cable should be included with the charging brick considering the brick's price, as previous chargers were equipped with their cables attached for roughly the same SRP. This cable's interchangeability means damaging a cable doesn't make your brick worthless, and also means you won't be stressing this cable as much in storage, since you can remove the "brick" end and not force it into a wrapped scenario where the neck is stressed. Type-C is the future and Apple is there, in their usual high quality way!

    Spare Cable

    When you're a full-time college student with two jobs, having a spare charger for your MacBook is a necessity. You can never go wrong with getting a spare Apple certified cable for your MacBook. Nowadays Amazon or Ebay will have "cheaper" cables but they're not as durable nor do they last long. Having a spare cable has saved me time between jobs and classes because I'll always have one in my bag without having to worry about whether I forgot it at home when I'm on the move. It's especially convenient having the other charger plugged in at home on my desk without having to worry about whether I left my charger at work or in school and just being able to pull my laptop out and plug it in immediately.

    Decent Cable - Ask for Price Match!

    This cable serves my intended purpose, which was to extend to my charging stand on top of a vertical dresser. It seems to be more cheaply constructed and feels stiffer at the neck than the old Apple lightning cables. I haven't experienced any cracking with the cable yet, but I also don't have it in a location that it will experience much stress. Make sure you ask for a price match until Best Buy lowers the price - Apple sells the exact same cable on their website for $19.

    Should come with the power adapter

    If you need to purchase a spare power adapter for a newer Mac laptop, you'll notice that the power adapter doesn't exactly have everything you need. You need to purchase the usb-c charge cable separately. The only bonus is that if you end up damaging the usb-charge cable, at least you can just replace that part. While I don't love spending more money to get a "complete" power adapter, this does the trick, and the price here was reasonable.

    The Apple 2M USB-C to USB-C cable is a great investment. The 1M cables are okay for charging on a counter, but aren't quite long enough for other places. the 2M is great for offices, or sitting on the couch, or even at the desk with a 30 Watt USB C adapter. They are much tougher than the standard USB-A to Lighting cable. With a simple adapter you can turn it into a lighting cable on the fly, but still have the nicer cable.

    Smart move by Apple

    I know it is frustrating that when Apple upgrades a product you almost always have to buy new accessories. But this was a smart idea. The charge cable is separate from the power adapter. With my previous MacBook Pro the cable was attached to the power adapter. When you wrap it up the cable bends and eventually ruins the cable. Now I can separate the cable from the power adapter and just wrap it up like a phone charger.

    Excellent power cable for MacBook Pro

    I purchased this genuine Apple cable from BestBuy to charge my Apple MacBook Pro. Having an extra power brick and power cable allows me to have a full setup at the office and then I keep the power brick and power cable that came with my computer in my backpack so that I always have all my accessories when I am traveling and on the go. Given how expensive Apple computers are, I think it is a wise investment to use genuine Apple accessories and am delighted by this purchase.

    Had purchased an open box display MacBook Pro, in perfect condition, but it didn't include the wire or power plug. BB salesperson said that Apple doesn't include them for their display models unless they've been changed. Guess just a cost saving thing plus much easier for store to just unplug & plug into the displays, instead of running new wires each time a newer model comes out. Wire works fine.

    I needed an quick solution to obtaining a second power cable for my Lenovo ThinkPad P52s. I use the laptop in two different locations, want to travel lite, didn't want to wait to purchase something online, and had some Best Buy rewards to use. This cable and the Apple 67-watt power adapter were the perfect pair. They charge my laptop as fast as the standard accessories and are more compact to keep in the desk drawer. I couldn't be happier.

    I bought this as a backup for iPad Pro 11 but in testing with a 3rd party USB-C charger, it charges my other USB-C devices faster. For example, I would get a warning when connecting my Surface Book 2 but with this Apple cable, I no longer get the under power warning. The cable makes a big difference. Spend the money for the better one.

    A cord that SHOULD come with the brick

    Title sort of says it all. It's a cord. It works. But Apple is really trying my patience with this everything no included approach. Everyone eventually needs an extra power cord. It was bad enough how much they charged you for on my old MacBook Pro...but at least that brick came with the friggin' cord to plug into the machine. $100+ for a power cord all said and done. Pretty friggin' ridiculous, but whatcha gonna do?

    I originally got this to use as an extra charging cable for my iPad Pro in my office. But it does not fit into the hole in my case to snap in properly, as the included iPad Pro cable does. I ended up using this for my MacBook Pro instead. Other than that, works well. Got it on sale for about $15, full price is way too much.

    This cable does exactly what it’s supposed to: it charges my MacBook Pro at full speed. It also charges my Nintendo Switch pretty fast as well. It works great but you’re paying a premium because it’s an Apple-branded cable. I bought it to replace one I lost for my work laptop so I wanted an original Apple one, otherwise I would have bought another brand and saved some cash.

    I just recently replaced my MacBook Air with the new MacBook Pro. At first I didn’t know how I felt about the thunderbolt ports, but now I see how it creates a more universal device. I got this cable at a great price, and if it were ever to get damaged, I would just have to replace the cable. Whereas before, the entire charging adapter would have to be replaced ($79, ouch).

    The store associate told me this cable would work for connecting my Surface Book 2 to an external portable monitor that requires USB-C cable connection. It didn't work. Bummer. I am sure this works great for other Apple products, but beware if associate tells you this will work as a substitute for any USB-C cable.

    The cable feels tough and there is a nice little click when plugging it in. However, I feel like even this length can be a little restrictive. It is also sad to see the MacBook Pro return to a simple block and cable after introducing advancements like the magnet charger. Seems like a step backwards.

    This cable works with the Apple's USB-C power adapters. (Note: if you have a Mac Book Pro then you need to buy the 87W USB-C Power Adapter as it's the only one that works for that model). It's pretty good length and works as expected. It's too bad that Apple got rid of the magsafe adapter because if someone trips over this cable it will likely bring your laptop crashing down from the table it was on.
