28AWG? Bit on the thin side wouldn't you say? That should be very easy to break due to repeated flexing and not carry much current to boot.
If I add the 7 inch coil, does that mean it will be 7 inches longer? So if I order a 5ft cable and add the 7 inch coil, it would be 5ft+7inches?

I believe coil length is in the total length. You select 5ft, your cable will be 5ft, the coil is in there.
This is a long shot, but does anyone know if this works with a Quickfire Rapid? Does the largest cable offered in this drop fit within the chassis cable guides?
Just want to make sure- I got in on the Massdrop x MiTo Laser ALT Mechanical Keyboard drop and want to use this cable with it. What sort of connectors should I order? Sorry.. silly question I know.. just want to be sure! Thanks ;)

the laser alt uses an usb-c connector, so you should go with that!
rob_ger
Thank you! I appreciate it.
I received my two cables! they are very pretty and they look great on my ergodox, but I am facing issues with the cables supporting my ergodox infinity
for both of my mechcables usb c cables, they connect my ergodox just fine to my pc, but neither of them support daisy chaining my keyboard together. Only half of my keyboard is usable with these cables : ( I am 1 mechcable and an amazon cable now to type this

I am having the same issue, my keyboard isn't detecting the connection here :(
Type-C is just the shape of the connector -- this is probably a proper Type-C end. The USB revision number is a totally separate specification, having to do with the speed of data transfer. USB 1 and 2 only used two power conductors and two data conductors. USB Mini treats the shielding as a 5th conductor for grounding, IIRC.
The Infinity ErgoDox requires a USB 3.0-compliant cable to connect the two halves. It uses the extra conductors, but not the high-speed data capability. I have a nice self-sleeved cable connecting mine to my hub, but I have to use a non-matching USB 3.0 Type-C cable from Monoprice to connect the two halves :(.
USB 3.0 and 3.1 cables are a lot harder to make. They have specific impedance requirements (a result of the high frequency data needs), and you can't just solder them up all willy-nilly like you could with 1.0 and 2.0. I've tried it myself and failed miserably. I can make a USB 2.0 cable out of four paper clips, but when I tried to resleeve a 3.0 cable, I couldn't get it soldered back up in a reasonably-sized splice, defeating the purpose of an aesthetic mod.
Any updates on shipping?

I also pinged customer service—soon after I got a notice that 9/4 is the new estimated ship date.

Got the update that my cable has shipped with 9/4 being the estimated arrival.
So I ordered one of these but in Type-C, at the time I had two type C boards, but I already sold both, I won't be able to use the cable, so if anyone is either interested in trading cables, or just buying it straight up feel free to hit me up on reddit, u/tyson522. Specs on the cable I ordered are below.
  • Colorway Option: Dual Color (Hot Pink, Turquoise) w/ Dark Purple Techflex
  • Length Option: 3ft
  • Optional Coil: No, thanks.
  • Connector Option: USB C 2.0 to USB A (+$2.00)
Is there any update on this? Shipments should start in a week or two, right?
Psyched to get this cable and see what it looks like. I just received my ZapCables Laser (not ordered on Massdrop) and that thing is a sexy beast. The heat shrink wrap is the perfect hue of blue to match NovelKeys x MiTo's Laser Desk/Mouse Mat. The neon pink sleeving glows under blue light and is pretty lit without any light. Zap is more expensive and I can attest to its high quality so the price is acceptable.
(Photo: I am keeping the shrink wrap on my coils and the cable in a plastic sleeve until the Laser ALT arrives. You also don't need to see my ugly keeb.)

should have bought one more spare cable
OldCat
Zapcables! I ordered this Mechables Laser cable AND https://zapcables.com/keycaps-series-laser/
Looks good, i'm buying this in hopes that the GMK laser keycap set will drop in the future again for my WASD V2. If not it's still a beautiful cable.
these would look sick with the MiTo mechanical keyboard
Could I be able to use it to charge my phone? to carry less on the go.
Massdrop lazer keyboard is USB C?
Painiyff
yes
Man, Massdrop is really going all in on the ALT Mito Keeb. Can't wait to see what they do for DEL
Nicknak30
What is the DEL? Massdrop's 40%?
Nicknak30
Laser Alt is the best Keeb massdrop ever produced.
Only for Laser!
From the pictures I think I already have my answer, but if you get the coil option , is the coil next to the chosen end where you connect to the keyboard? Would hate to get the coil for the looks and it's far down the cable and behind the desk where I connect it to the computer
BigEdMustapha
Yep, the coil will start 2-3" inches from the small connector (i.e. mini-b, micro, usb c)
mechcables
Thanks for the confirmation!
Any chance there's a usb-c to usc-c option coming?
Modes
These days I will only buy something if it's only usb-c. Tired of adapters and dongles.
First time spending $36 for a cable!!!

have to buy...haha
OldCat
List your options bro! I was looking at getting jumbo purple with green sleeving… What connector is the Lazer? USB A to USB C?
OH MY they finally offer a USB C Option
$10 is ludicrous for shipping a cable. I'd buy it otherwise.
Bit of a shame the shipping on this is more than half the product price
I want USB-C cable in GMK Nautilus colors !
Marutk
Zap cables has them!
This color wave looks very different than the one on zapcables. I wonder which one will match gmk laser keycaps the best.
TheCoolNeighbor
zap cables + alt laser kbd = outrun mechables laser + alt laser kbd = vaporwave
Yay usb c! Now just need that on the black cable from last week, crossing my fingers
OOoooo say can you C!!!!!
usb-c rocks!
OldCat
they also seem to break faster than any other cable ive ever used in my life
Finally a usb c option! Thank you!
Mine turned up this week. I love how it looks, however I no longer have a need for it. Jumbo coiled USB Micro in the hot pink. PM me on reddit @MagicHead94 if anyone's interested.

Careful for scams

macken

rob_ger
Here you go. Just snapped a picture with my phone so not the best quality. The craftmanship on the cable itself is wonderful.
