Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable (3ft) Review (Video)

I review the 3 feet Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable. This is a USB-C cable that is up to USB-C specifications with a 56k Ohm pull-up resistor which is required to denote that cable uses the legacy standard for backwards compatibility. Also this product comes with Anker's great customer support. I have been Anker's customer for years. Most of my products are good, but when I do have a problem, Anker's customer support always corrects things for me (when with-in the warranty period). This is why I am still their customer even after all these years. In the video, I also compare this cable to the Choetech USB-C to USB 2.0 cable.

Please note that any USB-C cable with USB-A plug on one end will not charge your 5V 3A devices at the maximum current. Legacy USB-A chargers go up to 5V 2.4A max. As mentioned, in my testing with my Huawei Nexus 6P, I didn't notice too big of a charging speed difference even with the lower current output.
