Did anyone else get a cable with a type C connector? Mine has type C to type C and neither connector will plug into ANY of my type C plugs. It's like it goes half way in and then just stops before it fully seats or snaps into the connection. Really upset right now. I waited a long time for this cable only to have this pretty bizarre problem :( The connectors aren't damaged either. I'm afraid if I push any harder on the cable it's going to break the socket of whatever I try to plug into.

I just submitted a request for a refund. Real shame cause the cable is nice. I should have just gotten another Winnja cable.

Another person here with the exact same problem. I'll be looking at the cable under my inspection microscope tomorrow to see WTF is going on with it. I design a lot of USB-C hardware and have never encountered this kind of issue.
When this cable to be shipped another four months?
The estimated shipping date for the last drop is here. Are there any updates? Edit: Mine has now been shipped.
(Edited)
So from the reviews it seems the first round of cables were great, second round the orange color was actually red, what will the third round have in store for us? Well I'm going to find out. Wish me luck guys.

I got a red one instead of orange
How long is the cable before the coil? Is that 2 or 3 inches?
So the description says you can add a 7" coil but the pictures are showcasing a 12" coil. Which one is it?
What's the point of having USB-C when the cable itself only has USB 2.0 specification?

One thing I would also like mechcables to offer is gold usb-c. They offer gold connections for the other usb types, but not usbc.

I mean, it's a cable. It can be used for more than just a keyboard XD, and if it were USB 3.1, it's not like it wouldn't further be backwards compatible.
Replace the orange with red, and it would be perfect for me...

This is interesting because when my original carbon 7" coiled came just the other day I couldn't shake the feeling that it's red, not orange. Super bizarre even though I am pretty sure it's orange... or am I dunce and somehow missed something and there *is* a red one I've ordered?

HEY! So people got this like 40weeks ago, however I still haven't gotten mine? How do I get in touch with the shipper?

Those are from the last version of this drop.
Hi! When is this product shipping? :)
for the USB-C crowd, lets just order direct. :)

If someone figures out exact options, I'd definitely get it here or participate in some group buy. Unless we can just tell that guy to look at the pics and copy it.
FirstOne
I think its the same guy, but in his order form you can ask for a particular theme and he'll put it together. I emailed him awhile back with some questions but haven't placed an order. Good thing I didn't because now I'm in need of a USB-C for my future kb.
These look fantastic, but don't fit my kb. Are we ever gonna see a Dolch colorset?
Can this be a typo? According to the description it said 12" Coil, cross referencing the vendor's site, he charges $7 for coil. Could it be +$7.00 for 12" Coil?

It is because it factors in the extra (5ft) cable length needed for the coil. It would be the same on the order form once the extra length is added
mechcables
ahh okay.. got it.. thanks for your reply
Why is there no option for the connector color? I want a grey one, not orange.
SpectralBacon
NO SOUP FOR YOU!
When will we start getting options for USB C, is there a limitation i'm unaware of? And yes I know most boards out in the wild are still micro.
Funk2187
Yea lot of boards out there are still Micro for sure. New Ducky keyboards are USB-C though. Ducky's my jam.
Something seems off here. The description says you have the option of 9ft in length, but it's not available as an option. You have the option for a 7" coil but the examples show a 12" coil.
Why... hate c type??
why not just go buy the usb c cable from zapcables or other vendors that sell usb c rather than complaining about this drop?
kick53rv3
Don't look at it as complaining. If you are a brand/reseller/manufacturer you should be grateful for prospective customers comments voicing what they want rather than being quiet and walking away.
heldpizza
And what do you know... The next drop they have comes with the USB-C option! A+ for listening to the community! May consider this drop!!!
Oh here we go... "OMG why no USB-C? FailDrop."
So for the uninitiated, these are custom, hand made cables. Meaning an individual puts them together by hand. USB 3.0 Type-C is a 22-24 pin connector that requires a PCB and controller to interface with a standard 7-lead USB 3.0 cable. The reason you're still going to see keyboards using USB Mini and similar connectors is not only because USB 3.0 isn't a necessary for these devices, but also because it amounts to a 4 pin connector with a 4/5-lead cable.
Until manufacturers come out with an affordable, ready made USB Type-C connector where an individual can just solder up the 7 wires, it isn't feasible for the Do-It-Yourself-er.

Which would be nice... if it were 3.0 or lower. That 3.1 connector diagram is showing 17 contacts.
Cyphre
I know someone using those currently for their 2.0 over C cables with a resistor soldered. Having all the pads available means you can use them if you want to do 3.1 or ignore them and just use the ones for 2.0, like my dude does. Plus being one of the very few connectors available to use a proper metal shell instead of a plastic one most have.
Please add an USB-C variant. I really need this for my newly-ordered Planck rev. 6 :<
c'mon we just want a type-c cable :C
MRW I see Carbon themed cables but then no USB-C.

How do i choose Original Carbon & 12' Coil ?
Liam91
Same question..
Liam91
Same question. I want orange Coil.
Every time this shows up in my email, I click it... hoping that this time, I will see USB-C. Disappointed yet again, my poor Carbon Ergodox is destined to be forever cursed with boring cables.
No USB-C? In 2018?
What the heck.
USB C
Gimme updoots too REEEEEEE
TanvirK175
give ME updoots
was thinking of this, but paying $12 for a *coil* is just lol nooo..
Also gonna bitch about the lack of USB-C. :-( I was so ready to buy three cables for my ErgoDox.
Yeah, missing USB-C is killing this for me too.
