Recommended USB-C braided cable, minimum of 6'?

I’m looking to purchase a high quality braided USB-C cable to connect to the power brick and my M1 MBP and/or iPad Pro.

Do you have a recommendation? Also, is there any reason for me to get a Thunderbolt cable?

I love this one so much. It is very long, but sturdy. I use it to charge my Lenovo ThinkPad, M1 MacBook Air, and iPad Air.

Nomad cables can’t be beat. Kevlar wrapped. Pretty much indestructible.

I’ve been happy with my Anker cables. Bought a bunch when they had a sale.


After yet another Apple USB cable frayed around the connectors, I purchased these heavy-duty Amazon Basics cables.

Thanks @quorm. The Amazon Basics are cheaper than the Ankers. Do you think there would be any issues with the Amazon’s vs the Ankers?

The Amazon cables are working fine. I don’t notice any data issues, if that’s the concern. They are quite sturdy. The connector seats very firmly in my MacBook’s USB ports, which I like.

Thanks! I’m glad to hear about the connector because some don’t connect tightly, which drives me nuts. :slight_smile:

I think I’ll save some money and go with the Amazon Basics, thanks for the recommendation!
