I am in the market for some new USB Type-C cables and I am aware that not all of them follow the correct specification and can damage whatever is plugged in to them. Google engineer Benson Leung has done a lot of work (and fried some devices!) testing USB Type-C cables and reviewing them on Amazon.com. I’ve attempted to find the equivalent products on Amazon.co.uk and have listed them here alongside the relevant review.
Thank you to Benson for doing the research!
