      Pictures are misleading, but amazing cable none the less.

      What the pictures on the box and on the site don't convey is that the solid plastic bits between the wire and the connector are **massive**. If you've seen the What the pictures on the box and on the site don't convey is that the solid plastic bits between the wire and the connector are **massive**. If you've seen the fiber optic lightning cables, it feels a lot like that. Also the girth of the cable is about 2.5 standard lightning cables wide, and the wrapping around it feels like a mid 2000s ethernet cable. It connects at 3.1 speeds, feels solid and not like it'll break any time soon. Good packaging. It's like an online date, the picture is a bit misleading, but it's the same person at the end of the day.

      USB C Not Backwards Compatible, as were previous versions

      Belkin's cables are great, however, if you need to connect to a legacy system or device, I just found out (the hard way) that USB-C is *not* backward compatible Belkin's cables are great, however, if you need to connect to a legacy system or device, I just found out (the hard way) that USB-C is *not* backward compatible. Although USB-C and USB 3.1 were developed at the same time, they are not the same thing. Apple needs to document this fact more thoroughly on pages where this cable is erroneously recommended.

      Does not charge/extremely slow charging

      The macbook recognizes when the cable is attached and detached showing a charging symbol, however the charge rate is so weak or non existent that i have noticed The macbook recognizes when the cable is attached and detached showing a charging symbol, however the charge rate is so weak or non existent that i have noticed my battery charge actually declining (albeit at a slower rate than if it were not plugged in at all) when using this cord. As far as I am concerned, its a waste of money. And now, apparently I cannot return my item, even though it is only 11 days after i received it. Thanks Apple! You screwed over another loyal customer yet again!
