FYI these are quite possibly the worst cables I have ever purchased.
The quality of the cable itself is excellent, however, while plugged into my Google Pixel 2 it says charging but it doesn't actually charge. I thought it may have been my phone so I gave it to a friend who has a Galaxy, same thing with his.
These cables are either really slow or I got a bad one!
Why type-c is sold out in cable one but available in cable two? Does it mean we cannot buy two USB-C cables?
No one makes a quality usb-c headphone dongle. I'd buy that.
Got a Micro-USB and a Lightning one a couple of weeks ago. They really are beautiful cables with a caveat.
If you are in the habit of yanking your cables out by the, well, cable, then DON’T get these. You will break and ruin them. The metal jacket is a nicely coiled gunmetal with a bit of weight and drape. However, there is nothing crimping, or attaching the jacket to the plugs at either end. Meaning, if you yank by the cable the metal jacket WILL pull out of the plug and expose the wires inside. If you’re good about grasping the plug body itself when unplugging, then you’ll be fine. But I can see why some have complained about their cables “breaking” where the cable meets the plug.
Otherwise, I really like the ones I got. Very classy looking. They are the bedside cables that charge my phone and earphone at night. I do wish a longer option was available. 3 feet to the nightstand is fine, but I can’t pick up the phone and look at it while in bed. It’s just a little too short.
Aw. The USB-C ones are sold out. :'(
Is this the same manufacturer each time. Mine were great in June but now I'm hearing some bad reviews.... thanks!
Does anyone have a photo of the packaging these come in?
Y'know, I'd join up if they was a right angle into the phone, but they ain't. Maybe next time, they look they'd up my nerd cred.
I am very ambiguous about these, as the cable does seem to be of a very good quality BUT the tips seem to be of way lower quality as they do have a seam instead of being solid. Should this be seen as a concern?

I hadn’t noticed that since it was so dark. As I go through my own collection of Type-C cables I notice about 50% have a seam and 50% don’t. Have had no issues with either style.
Yeah, that's out of spec. But then so are the Nintendo USB-C connectors.
Are these iPhone compatible?! Dying to try them!
Glammazon
No doubt. Otherwise the Lightning cables would be pointless. And of 300 Comments here someone would have reported by now that they didn’t. 😊
Glammazon
I use mine for my iphone both with an extension and without -- going for a second set!
I’m in for one Micro-USB and one Lightnin. Got to see what all the fuss is about. 😂
Yay finally available again. These have been my go to lightning cables. I bought more to have spares for work. Never had a problem with mine.
Anyone know if where I can get these amazing Pluggies again? I've been waiting but no drop again! I bought 1 to try and now wish I'd gotten more! Thanks!
Anyone receive these yet from the June drop? I purchased June 9th. Massdrop says shipped June 29th. Tracking still says, "Status Pre-Shipment June 12." ???
Mine just broke. Been using it for two days. I havent moved it from beside my bed and now the cable wrap is starting to shimmy up the cord so bare wires are showing. Total piece of crap.

Hmmm wondering if we had different ones? I got mine in June and they are holding up even with a toddler pulling it. They have a 1 year warrante , maybe you got a dud?
"stainless steel zinc alloy"......?
It's either one or the other.
The weak point on micro-USB cables isn't the actual cable in any case. It's the blasted micro-USB connector itself. They break if you look at them funny. That's supposed to be one of the MAJOR advantages of the USB-C connector — it's supposed to be much more robust than micro-USB.

true. Sounds like it is the connection between the two like in almost any other cable.

The real weakness of the micro-USB connector is where the protruding connector portion joins into the shell. That joint is very weak. I'm given to understand USB-C is somewhat stronger in this regard. (So is USB 3.0, but it never really caught on.)
If you’re having trouble with the cable pulling out of the plugs( either end)do what I do degrease theplug and cable at the plug, and put a fair amount of buildup of good epoxie at the joint and about 1/4-5/16 up on the cable and the wire, let. It harden for about 36 hours! I’ve got several cables I’ve done this to that have lasted 5 or more years!
I was so stoked to get these but my bank canceled my card (fuck you citibank) because of some fraud shit. Second time this has happened on a Saturday after the banks closed so I had no money all weekend. And then Massdrop tried to take the money out for this and it didn't go through, and I just went to update it and I'm like 12 hours too late. For fucks sake. Anyone know when this drop is coming back??

Honestly, don’t waste your money man, they look really cool. And feel great. But the break easily.
One of the only specifications that should have mattered isn't listed: wire gauge on the charge and data lines. Probably, just another 28-gauge clunker.

Joined the group buy back in December. It took less than 4 weeks to get here which was great, I've been using it on an xbox controller since then. It's taken a beating but no signs of damage or fraying. I don't know what other people are getting but I got exactly what was pictured on the product page.
Which end would fit a Samsung Galaxy S7? --Thankyou

Are these USB 2.0, 3.0, or 3.1? That seems like a pretty important spec to leave out for a cable.
Trumpster
Yeah I need to know this also.
Copper is better than aluminium.
Surgical
Thats not true at all. Aluminum does better with voltage drop.
Don't believe the hype. This product claims, "no more fraying and bending." After just a week of fairly light use (I used it a total of 4 times), the photo shows that it is no different than any other cable, and does indeed bend, and the "metal" portion does not cover . This cable actually lasted less time than much cheaper cables. Piece of junk.

I just receive the cable . . And I can´t use it . It have USB A Female , should be USB A Male so I can plug him to my Charger And I order USB C on other end, Received Micro USB . 100 % useless Cable !!! I am not sure who can use this kind of cable ?

Try again. The design of these is deceptive. You are expecting a sheath around the plug end but there is none. This…will fit into…this…

I received it yesterday and I use it for keyboard purpose. It is difficult to evaluate because it is used for a short period of time, but it seems to be good in design.

I'm still waiting for my cable to make its way to me up in the PNW in Canada...
The tracking info that I was provided gives the 13th of April as the expected delivery date and the last information available is that the package crossed the US-Canada border on the 10th. There have been no updates since...
I'm still waiting the previous drop to arrive.
Is there any way to order one of each type of cable in this drop?
Everyone talks about how much they like these cables so they raise the price of the lightening version by $8/pack. Thats some real BS man.
