Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger

Bought the Google Universal 22.5W Dual Port USB Type-C Charger together with the Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable for US$39.99 (S$57) and got it to ship through HopShopGo.

This is probably the only trustable USB Type-C Charger that I can find which has more than one USB Type-C port and is reasonably priced. Besides the charger, it also comes with a 1.8m USB Type-C to Type-C cable (USB 2.0 speed) which itself already cost US$19.99 (S$29).

Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable

The Google USB Type-C to USB Standard-A Plug Cable has been out of stock for quite some time. I managed to buy it when it just got back in stock on 9th November 2015. Because it doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, I have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The retail price is US$12.99 (S$19) excluding shipping fees from HopShopGo and comes in only one length which is 1m. It is a USB 2.0 cable and hence the data transfer speed will be capped at 480Mb/s.

Apple USB-C Charge Cable (2m)

The Apple USB Type-C Cable is retailing for S$42 and comes in only one length which is 2m. I wish they have it in 0.5m and 1m as well.

There are no markings on the USB ends on the cable because there is no need to since it has a reversible plug orientation. This is similar to the Apple Lighting cable as there is no marking on the Lightning end of that cable as well.
