Rating: 5/5 It works June 7, 2018 Not a lot to be said about a cable, really. It works, was well-packaged, and appears to be made of quality materials.

Rating: 5/5 An extra that you need January 2, 2018 The quality for this cable is great and you must consider getting one if you already have a Thunderbolt Dock 3 to start exploting all the great speed transfer features.

I would recommend this item to a friend! Customer Videos:

Rating: 3/5 Not for Charging from a dock October 25, 2017 This is not a negative review - I advise caution if you intend to use the cable with one of the new Docks and hope that it will also provide charging power to your MBP.

I brought this higher specification cable in the hope it would work with my "OWC USB-C 10-Port Dock with 80 Watt Power Supply - Silver" - OWCTCDK10PMDSL - specifically I wanted a longer cable from the dock (so that I would move it back on my desk) to the MBP 2016 with Touchbar.

The 1m cable, although rated for 60w, 15W - Bus power, 3A delivery, is insufficient to power/charge the MBP.

The Dock manual says USB 3.1 Gen1 Type C cable its supplied, this cable does not specifically state that it is USB3.1 Gen1. Sadly I'm still searching.

Response from MacSales.com, Call Center October 26, 2017 We do apologize about any confusion regarding the specifications for the cable and what it is capable of. The differences between USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 are a little confusing, but we do have a wonderful chart available that goes through and helps you decide which cable would be right for your application.
