It’s certainly been long enough x

I have 0 use for this, but I’m sure it’s a solid cable for those who can take advantage of it.

I have a 16in MacBook Pro and I’m curious about this product. It’s no secret that the cables Apple includes, even in with the MacBook Pros are not of the highest quality. It would be awesome if we could get this braided with a lifetime guarantee at launch or soon after.

I’m guessing between $25-$30

Unlike PowerLine USB-C to DC, this is a cable with increasing demand. Devices with PD input above 60W are becoming more common.

Im guessing for people who own laptops/chromebooks?

Yes, although tablets and even phones may be pushing that boundary soon.

I do have use but need to buy a 60-100W PD wall charger to use this

Required for their hubs and the 100W Powercore when it comes. Logical to come out with one before it hinders their sales in the hubs. I saw some latops 85W needs, so add hub…

Waiting for the person who asks for a 10ft version…

At least to get the maximum output… Great point!

I’ll grab a few of these to replace existing cables anyway.
Magnetic adapters would be a good option too

Will there be 1ft and 3ft versions as well? Above is only 6ft mentioned

The need for thicker and quality cables increase with cable length. At 6ft there’s plenty of places for a bad wire to resist 5A and age the cable faster.

Buts never forget that USB being a low voltage higher current protocol is never intentioned by engineers to be a long cable. Power losses and how much copper and manufacturing costs lower in a higher voltage lower current such as the main electrical grid.

So Powerstrips to bring the wall sockets nearer, corded wall chargers to bring the usb socket nearer, and the shortest possible USB cable, are truths independent of suppliers.

For shorter like 1ft cable, you probably are going to be fine using non-Anker cable, carry a spare and save money. 3ft is very popular and I’m sure would make sense from Anker. Anyone asking for 10ft needs to understand the consequences on cost, thickness or performance.

6ft from Anker solves the corner case earlier and I expect 3ft soon. 1ft probably never / long wait. You could probably just certify the existing 3A 3ft cables are good enough.

Everyone with their box of Powerline MicroB cables they paid extra know you can over spend on cables.

Not exactly, that is the older PowerLine II version.

You’re correct, my bad. Apparently I own the II. What’s the difference II Vs III?

Thinner (more flexible), more durable, and more expensive.
