To be more specific, these issues arise when bad USB Type-C to Type-A cables are connected to a computer. If, say, a phone is set for charging at 3 amps and a computer can only output 2 amps, the phone will try to draw too much power for the computer to handle.
Things would be just fine if you had 56kΩ resistor and a system for leveling power on the cable. In this case, the phone would only try to pull out as much juice as the source can handle.
With all of this in mind, Bensong Leung has taken it upon himself to figure out which USB Type-C cables are good and which are bad. And he has some great advice, for those looking for even more options. That said, this list below highlights just a few of the great cables worth picking up - and without worry of damaging your device. You'll notice almost all of these are Type-C to Type-A, meant for transferring data to a PC or for use with legacy USB wall chargers.
