Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C: A Quick Guide and A Look To The Future | Other World Computing Blog
Although both data transfer protocols have been around for a few years now on Macs (particularly MacBooks), there’s still a lot of confusion about Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C. Both of the protocols use the same port, but that doesn’t mean that Thunderbolt 3 products can connect to USB-C ports. In this post, we’ll explain the difference between the two protocols and also talk about what may be coming down the road.

I tested a bunch of USB charging cables... here are the results
Full report: https://imgur.com/gallery/6Uk3PmO

TL;DR: I tested the voltage drop (i.e. internal resistance) of some micro and Type-C USB cables. Mophie's micro-USB cable is excellent, Momax's micro-USB cable is garbage. Xiaomi's Type-C to Type-C cable is just as good as Apple's, but Xiaomi's Type-A to Type-C cable for their electric shaver is barely better than a cloth hanger.

Edit: Mophie not Morphie. Thanks for pointing it out!

LLano Magnetic (Like MagSafe) USB Type C Cable for MacBook $18.39 + Delivery (Free with Prime/$49) @ Mostly Melbourne Amazon AU - OzBargain
This product is part of the "End of September" Mobile Accessories 20% off sale that we posted yesterday but stock wasn't received in the warehouse until this morning so we are re-posting for those who are interested.

As many Macbook users(including myself) experienced when Apple decided to adopt USB Type C standard to charge its latest MacBooks, the loss of Apple's proprietary MagSafe feature was not only emotional but also caused a bit of inconvenience in the daily workflow, so we have been searching for a quality replacement cable that features a similar mechanism. As it turns out, only 2 "reasonably reputable" manufacturers in China have launched products for this application, one is Baseus, the other is LLano.

We got samples for both the [Baseus(link to the original Kickstarter project)](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1234664819/baseus-worlds-fastest-magnetic-usb-type-c-cable/description), and the [LLano(link to Joybuy with user reviews)](https://www.joybuy.com/product/600171538.html) to compare and test. They have different pin designs for the magnetic interfaces and through our testing LLano version is easier to use and have better build quality overall, hence we contacted the manufacturer and imported a few boxes into Australia.

Some specs below:

Brand LLano
Model LJN-SJX110
Connector USB TypeC(Male) to USB Type C(Male)
Length 2m
Output max 20V4.35A
Weight 36g (net)
Package Hard cardboard tube

Please do note that through our testing we found that due to the nature of magnetic interface and high power output, the metal connector piece could become heated so be cautious when plug/unplug. This is Gen 1 of the product and LLano is currently looking to refine the design and obtain USB-IF certification for the next generation, so any user feedback will be highly appreciated.
