 Wrap up

These are our favorite USB-C cables, with the best ones still having connections to old school USB because a lot of our laptops still use the traditional USB Type-A. Whichever one you eventually purchase, keep at mind price, trustworthiness, and whether if you need two US Type-C connections or need Type-A connections. Personally, my favorite is the ANKER USB Type-C to Type-A Cable, whether you’re considering price or how well Anker makes their cables.
