AUKEY provided me with a couple of their new USB cables. Here’s my review of the CB-CMD38 USB-C cable. You can see the review for the other cable, a 3-in-1 USB, here.
Your basic USB-C to USB-C cable, but with right angle connectors on both ends. The cable’s specs are standard, supporting up to 60W power and 480Mbps data transfer. Braided nylon, using the thinner and more flexible type I’ve seen and liked in other AUKEY cables. The USB-C connectors are heavy duty to support the more stressful pull angles.
The right angle connector lets the cable run directly to the back of your desk if connected to a laptop. With a phone it is easier to hold and charge while watching videos or playing a game in horizontal orientation. My testing shows expected charging throughput, so there’s no performance loss verses a more standard USB-C cable.
