Unlike the Lightning Cable, the USB-C Cable is available in only design which is the right-angled USB end. Lengthwise, it is the same at 1.2m (4ft).
The prices stated above are the discounted price. It is not known how long those prices will last.
OKPOW USB Type C Cable is a USB-C to USB-A cable that is retailing for US$12.99 (S$18) on Amazon.
It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.
I backed the Dash microSD and SD Card Reader on Kickstarter on 16th November 2015. The project was funded on 1st December 2015 after raising a total of US$11,492 out of their initial goal of US$10,000 from 717 backers.
I chose the US$22 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another US$3 (despite it stating US$2). So in total, I paid US$25 (S$36).
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).
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.
The cables are available in three colors (Gold, Silver, Black) and each of the colors are available in 3 lengths (0.5m, 2m or 3m). You can get all 9 variants from Amazon.
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.
The OnePlus Type-C Cable 150cm + OnePlus USB Type-C Adapter is retailing for S$23 on Lazada. It is sort of a promotion bundle. Delivery is an additional S$0.50.
If you are thinking of getting a USB Type-C cable from Amazon, be sure to read Benson Leung’s review on Amazon first.
Benson works in Google and his team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. He has worked on two Pixel products that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1).
