What is a good brand for short - 12 inch - USB C to USB C charging cable ... My Blazer has a USB C port as does my Android Galaxy phone and the OEM Cable is six feet, way to long.

Also need a 90 degree 110v plug charger for Android phone too. Almost every one seems to pop out the top - or horizontal - instead of at 90 degrees. Can be USB A to USB C but also 12 inch cable.

I'm looking on Amazon, but reviews are so up and down on the same cords and vendors I can't figure out a good brand. Would rather buy quality then save a buck. Thx M44

In my experience none of the brands are better than another. The biggest failure is the usb outlet in the device.

After trying a few brands I found This brand to be durable and works well in the RV.

I have had good luck with the Amazon Basic brand.

Most USB cables are sold by metric standards, so look for 1/2M, about 19".

If you are really "hard" on your cables, buy ones rated for 100W. They actually use thicker gauge wire.

I used to do the same, but noticed that the cheap "Dollar Tree" cables stopped charging after a couple of years. When I started buying quality cables, that never happened again. Hence, my switch to Anker.

I've never had one fail. I've lost a few.

For a little while they had some that had led's. It was great to know there was power.
