    Great cable!

    Cable is great quality. Please ignore the reviews stating slow data transfer speeds. As the item’s title states it is s charging cable. The fact you can transfer data with it, albeit slowly, is purely a convenience. Power delivery is its intended purpose and it does it will.

    Not what you'd expect from apple. 1 star

    Did Apple really make this? It is not well thought out.

    1) For this price it should be a premium experience. Paying $100 for the cable and the adapter to power your laptop is definitely a premium price.

    2) The cable doesn't stay in my computer. My charger is plugged into the wall near my desk. That means the cord is coming from below the desk (I assume like most people). Due to gravity, it gradually slips out of my computer. I've woken up many times in the morning to a totally dead macbook pro because the cable fell out over night.

    3) Apple revamped the arms from the adapter that allow you to wrap the cord around it. Given that this cord is same thickness end to end, it would be great to wrap it.

    4) The cable is only a couple months old but it is already getting kinks and looking warn.

    5) It's a pain to untangle and plug in.

    6) Yes the reversible nature is nice and the promise of more of our devices using USB-C is nice, but it's not worth it for this terrible experience.

    7) Confusing shopping experience in store to know which one to get and why the price differences.

    I only use this cable for charging my MacBook and nothing else. Though, after just a few months of using it, it breaks. I have done absolutely nothing with it and the insides are all messed up. This is a cheaply made cable.

    Cable does not fully support USB-C

    This is exclusively a charge cable and does not support USB-C monitors or USB-C data transfer levels. I mistakenly assumed that the reason they sold the cable and the power brick separately was that one could use the cable to plug into USB-C monitors for both video and charging simultaneously (or plug your MacBook Pro into other USB-C devices). Nope! You have to get a real USB-C cable from another vendor to do that.

    More cables, more dongles: the Apple way.

    Wish it had a charge indicator LED

    First of all, I like USB-C and I believe it will be worth it in the long run, just like the transition to USB was a little annoying at first but worked out for the better.

    But unfortunately, the new change didn't just get rid of MagSafe, it also got rid of the charging LED. The new MacBooks don't have any LEDs on them, either, which means if you want to make sure your laptop is charging after plugging it in, it HAS to be open. I'm all for minimalism, but Apple is pushing it a little too far these days.

    ive had the computer for a few months and I rarely use it since its my back up or on the go laptop. So normally the cord is stored away neatly and carefully. By no it looks dirty and beat up after a small amount of use. The one before lasted me two years and was in perfect condition. The Macbook Pro 2017 feels more like a downgrade than upgrade.

    i have had my macbook pro for a short 11 months and this cable has already started to die just like the iphone ones. terrible design, extremely fragile. i have to hold it in a very specific place for it to charge since its breaking. i wish there were other charger options that were more durable. apple continues to fail on making durable chargers, cords, and technology. i was very content with my mac chargers before this most recent one, a huge step back on their part

    Nice cable, disappointing product

    In typical Apple fashion, this is a nice, flexible cable (hence the review higher than one star). However, it only supports USB 2.0 speeds. This cable would need to support USB-C 3.1 gen 2 to support maximum USB data transfer speeds, but it doesn't — which is a huge disappointment.

    (As an aside, it's frustrating that Apple doesn't include this cable with the standalone charger for USB-C MacBook Pros — either that or lower the cost of the charge to reflect the cost of the missing, but essential, cable).

    It has been approximately a month since I bought my MacBook Pro which came with the usb-c charger. After a month of normal use, the cable is not working. Very poor quality. There are no signs of damage on the cable, but it is not working.

    Thank you apple!!!

    Very poorly designed and can easily break

    Almost destroyed my Macbook Pro 2016. Cannot handle too much twists, can create short circuit and burn ports and motherboard. Use with caution

    storage issues

    apple got rid of the clip that holds the charging cord together so its a pain to get it wrapped up at all.

    USB Type-C Charging Cable Data Specification


    - Charges my 15" MacBook Pro (2017) right at 80 Watts (as measured by my Pluggable USB-C VA Meter)


    - Only supports USB 2.0 data speed (included in another post AND confirmed w/ Apple today)
    - No support for USB Alternate Modes (e.g. Thunderbolt, Display Port, MHL, and HDMI)
    - Absolutely no markings on cable whatsoever
    - High potential for future confusion and incompatibilities due to lack of USB-IF standard markings

    Zero Star if it was possible!

    Well, where do I begin?
    1/ Loss of mag-safe, basically being "unsafe". REALLY not happy about that one!
    2/ Donglife nightmare
    3/ Not directly backwards compatible... Not every USB-C cable, port, device, and power supply will be compatible!
    4/ If you’re not careful, you can neuter or even damage your devices by using the wrong cable.
    5/ Some cables with USB-C ports on both ends can only pass 5 Gbps data while others are compatible with 10 Gbps USB 3.1 gen 2. Other cables can’t be used for power delivery or are incompatible with Alternate Mode Thunderbolt.

    So yeah... thanks Apple!

    This cable is very disappointing—which is saying a lot considering that I only use it for the bare minimum (charging). No data transferring, no video, etc.

    It DOES seem durable (though I don't know how long it'll last, exactly) but it comes at the price of being very thick, so it gets tangled fairly easily. Also, after moving your MBP around, you'll also notice that the cable starts to become "twisted."

    I have a late 2016 macbook pro with 2-usbC ports or the non-touch bar mac book pro. I will have to say that the charger is perfect, it's not clunky and it detaches from the charger box. This saves me space and I can move the "charger-box" more towards the inside of my bag to protect it from the occasional knocks as I'm hurrying through the day.
    I do miss the magsafe but in a professional environment there was truly no need for it as these machines are ultra portable. I've gone through the process of adding Windows 10 to my Pro using Bootcamp and it monitors charging speeds and it takes about 30-40 minutes for the Macbook to become fully charged from a low as 25% and it last me all day.

    I think there is much to be said about the Increased efficacy and speed of charging and you can put the charger in any way and in any port on the machine. unlike the Mag-safe that had only like one way of charging and the ridiculous wearing out of the ports. The only thing I'm worried about with these chargers is that they look a bit flimsy like the Iphone lightening chargers. However the Box-parts should last a lot longer than the Magsafe as they don't have to do much but provide power.

    Nope. This cable is terrible. It was connected to my macbook pro when I tripped on the cable. Of course my laptop landed sideways, bending the connector while inside my computer, rendering it useless and broken. Why did you get rid of the Magsafe, Apple? Why?? Please come up with a better option.
