    Type C connector too bulky

    Although this is a nice sturdy type c cable from belkin and no offense to belkin they make the best cables and chargers but I personally feel like the type c connector might if Bern to bulky and long for my taste when they're like this they're are more prone to rip and I have already experienced this with only two months of use. Also keep in mind if you a have a phone case like you should it maybe too bulky to fit correctly and u might have to remove the case just to charge it might get a little annoying in the night or car. Good cable but next time belkin make the connector just a lil bit smaller makes our life much easier than it already is

    I ordered this online as I needed to be able to import photos from a camera I was renting. The camera's card required a dedicated reader but I didn't want to pay the rental price for that, and the cable option was considerably cheaper. When I went to the store to pick up the cable, I saw that there were other brands which cost almost half as much as the Belkin, so I bought both with the idea that I'd bring the Belkin back if the lower-priced cable worked. It did, so I will return it.

    Excellent Quality

    I purchased this cable to attach my Apple TV 4 to my Mac to side load additional applications. Cable was picked up and came in usual Belkin packaging. Cable was thick and durable and looks as if it could hold up to many years of use. The transfer speeds worked as advertised. The cable is excellent build quality by being thick but still being flexible. The connecters are not cheap and flimsy and I do not anticipate it getting a short due to constant bending. I ordered the 3ft version and even though it is short it still provided enough length for its use. Only complaint would be that it is pricey for the length that you get. Always have had good luck with Belkin cables.

    If you a newer iPad Pro (Gen 3) and need a cable that can be connected to the USB 3 and then connect to a USB C port on the iPad this is the cable to have. It does charge and sync at the same time, but the charge rate is low but this is cheaper than having to buy a new mac to get the USB C ports in the back so problem solved (For now). Great Cable, no issues, works as advertised and seem very well built.

    Purchased this new cable to charge my phone in the car and to use to transfer data from my phone to my computer. It will charge the phone after you go into the phone and change the settings to "USB for charging only". Same for uploading data, must be changed to "USB for transferring files". Not sure if this is a phone problem or a cable problem. Regardless, after changing the settings, it will charge the phone but at a very, very slow rate.

      Hi, DK007,

      The settings definitely depends on the model of the phone as our cable is a plug-and-play product. Also, we would like to verify a couple of details regarding the cable charging at a slow rate. Please email us your contact information at BelkinCares@belkin.com with the link to this review for our reference.

    Slow charges

    Unlike the original HTC charger, this one charges slowly so I had to install a charger app from the play store. This was an extra charger for use in the car or office...i still use the original to charge phone at home. For the price, it does what is expected. I do like the quality, very thick and not cheap looking. With the added app, it should work great as an extra charger. If you don't want to install another app buy the original from HTC.

      Hi, ladyj,

      It's uncommon that you need to install an App from Google Store just to speed up the charging process. This USB-C cable provides fast charging as it supports up to 3A of power output for charging USB-C devices. Get in touch with us at BelkinCares@belkin.com and we'll have one of our Support Technicians look closely into this odd behavior. Indicate your contact information and the link to this review.

    Thick heavy duty charging for my nexus 6P

    The struggle for a decent USB-C cable since purchasing my Nexus 6P has been real. Some may fry your device, others cost $50 for a light weight cable that I am going to ball up, throw around, and destroy. This cable is thick and rugged and doesn't fray or short out. Also, it's on the approved list of USB-C chargers put together for the Nexus 6P by Google employees.

    Never knew this cord existed until my brand new 4th generation Apple TV needed it inorder to update and work. You would think the Apple TV would come with such a much needed important cord to do system updates. Otherwise it wouldn't work. Although I'm upset I had to spend an extra $30 or so (when it should have came with the Apple TV) the cord did its job and I was able to get my Apple TV up and running.

    I bought this cable for a friend who was staying in the hospital when he lost his old one. By staying in the hospital, I mean bedridden and not moving the cable much. Yet after only about three weeks of using it, it just stopped working. He changed plugs, tried other phones, it just stopped working with no tears or damage done to it. It was good while it lasted but overall pretty disappointing.

    Durable plug that wont break due to how it was made. However it doesnt charge at the same rate as a normal Samsung charger. Samsung chargers take about 1 hour and 40 minutes for full charge from 0%. This charger takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes. That's the only difference.

    I've had real issues with all of my USB C cables since getting a Nexus phone. The rigid part of the USB C housing is long enough that it provides a lot of leverage on the actual connector causing them to have very short lifespans for me. In 6 months, I replaced mine twice, this being the third. It works great so far, same problems as the other cables, but here's to learning from my mistakes.

    Good length cord for USB-C to USB-A connection

    This cord works well for my needs which usually consists of using my computer, laptop, charging brick, or car USB connection to charge my LG G5 phone. The cord is rather stiff and sometimes is hard to wrangle in my purse, but this aspect also seems to ensure sturdiness and no cord splitting, so I'm tolerant of that feature. Good product - I have two of them and use them multiple times daily.

    Will Not Quickcharge Google Phones.

    Cable appears to be of good quality great. I bought this to charge my google phones. I tested this cable on Nexus 6P, Pixel 3 and Pixel XL. Although it charges normally (slowly), it will not enable quickcharge mode on any of my Google phones. My Hunt for a USB C to A cable continues. :(

      Hi, Dbasc,

      The USB 3.1 Type A-to-USB Type C Cable supports up to 3A of power output for charging USB-C devices. For isolation, try using a different adapter and if the same behavior persists, email us at BelkinCares@belkin.com along with your contact details and a link to this review for reference so we can have our Product Experts look into this.

    This is the adapter you need if you want to connect the 2018 iPad Pros to a PC or MAC. There is an article on support.apple.com that indicates this. I bought the adapter and it will charge the new iPads and sync them with iTunes on a PC or Mac. The Apple USB-A to USB-C adapter will not work!!!

    The transfer speeds are amazing and the length is plenty. Since I use it for my phone it can get worn down from constant battery pack charging from my pocket. Got this to replace other one for data only. Last one broke partly because it would only charge but it was my abuse of the cord that led to it. Would recommend, just wish there were more durable options at best buy

    I bought this cable to replace my broken Nomad cable. That cable was weak at the tip, although it was strong at the braids of the cable and the insulation. I wish companies like Belkin would make a braided version of this cable to add rigidity to the already quick and versatile USB-C.

    This cable offers high speed data transfer so its thicker than normal cables and is less flexible. Not a problem for my needs. Feels strong like it won't breakdown anytime soon. Haven't tested the data rates yet, but I know it will come in handy. Was on sale so it cost the same and a decent lower speed cable.

    If your computer does not have USB Type C connectors. When I purchased the latest iPad Pro, I did not know that it has the USB-C connector. Went home and hmmmm, cannot connect to my older macbook pro. Go back to bestbuy and bought this cable. You need it.

    I bought this to use in the car for my Nexus 6p and I am very pleased with it. I have bought Belkin made products before and have not had any issues. I really like how thick the cable is, I feel like I do not have to worry about any of the wires getting excess wear and tear or fraying when I have my phone in a car dock.

    One of these days, Apple and other phone manufacturers will have a common cable to connect cell phones to AC power for charging. Until that time, I had to buy this for my wife’s droid phone which I charge at the same time as my iPhone. Quality of this cable is excellent.
