    Cable has strange "gunk" on it.

    • Written by Matthew S from LINDEN

    I bought this cable to charge my iPad Pro 11". My only concern is being able to charge the iPad but having a little more length. Data transfers aren't a concern for me which seems to be the biggest complaint. What I have a problem with is the strange "gunk" that is on the cable. As I was unrolling it, my hands were getting some strange substance on them. I held a paper towel in my hand and pulled the cable through it and noticed a yellow substance was left behind. The cable is well made and durable which is important but this gunk has me a bit concerned. Plus it's just plain gross.

    USB Type-C Charging Cable Data Specification

    • Written by James W from Hixson

    PROS:

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


    CONS:

    - 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

    Indifferent

    • Written by Christian G from Garden Grove

    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."
