Isn't buying a USB C - USB C cable without a Power Delivery certification kind of limiting? For around the same price you'd be getting a nice braided Anker Powerline +, just as capable as connecting your keyboard, but also capable of powering your 60W laptop of a high power charger.

it seems really dangerous to have a type C cable laying around that is rated for 2.4A. That is under spec and shows that they ether ripped stock used for type b or lightning cables and put type C ends on it, or are incompetent. This is like seeing the A to C cables claiming more than 1A charge speeds. You mentioned anchor, but these look like the mono price OEM cables you can add screen printing to with a pallet sized order. Those are rated for 4A5V or 3A20V.

Reading this thread through, it doesn't seem like there's much discussion on how weird the ALT is with regard to type c to type c cables. I've tried it with a litany of cables and have had really mixed, mostly negative results. Have tried 20 pin magnetic attachments (which don't seem to initiate a device handshake or something when they become disconnected, ruining the utility), 3.0, 3.1 gen 1, 3.1 gen 2, through hubs and usb type c extensions or 90degree adapters -- all of which seem not to work unless plugged in a very specific way (I'm guessing this has to do with polarity). Even though the whole point of a reversible connector is to not have to worry about which way you plug it in, having to try it with a 25% success rate is more annoying than having physical feedback tell you to reverse the type A. Not sure to what degree this is an ALT specific thing, or whether it is something that plagues type-c mechs in general as this is the first I've owned. If the former, hopefully they fix this on the SHIFT. One of the reasons I've tried so many is that I have to breakdown my setup every day when I leave and over time expect that to cause issues either on the MacBook ports or the ALT's ports, would be nice to find something to take strain off either/both. Does Not Work (or works~25% of the time, leading to me returning them): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MP7LLFY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LF1FNRV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Really too bad on the Uni one because it makes a good charging cable. Works ~75% of the time through a 90 degree (linked below also) or extension, 100% on its own: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CE7IG3E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 this being a name brand cable, that's on sale for ~$4 it's pretty good. The 6" ones were good for connecting something to the right side passthrough. 90 degree extension https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0836HS4LQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Edit: This Aukey 90 degree to 90 degree works on MacBook pros about 75% of the time (depends on the port on ALT and which direction the plugs face (down from MacBook bottom ports)(toward outside in both ALT ports, toward inside on right ALT port, but oddly not left port as you face the spacebar.

I would generally prefer a USB 3.x compliant cable but honestly where I'm from all the affordable cables are USB 2.0 and if you really want USB 3.x and/or Thunderbolt 3, you end up paying way too much for a cable. Then there's Apple which charges $34 NZD for their 2m USB 2.0 cable. So while this drop is kinda stupid, I also kinda see the appeal.

Functionally speaking, there is no reason at all for keyboard manufacturers to switch to USB-C; it is simply a matter of financial opportunism as USB-C becomes increasingly ubiquitous. I find it pretty annoying that anyone would use USB-C (a notoriously abused and poorly-enforced standard) for a cable but wouldn't make it at least USB 3.0 compliant--if for no reason other than to provide convenience/compatibility/utility to the consumer. It seems that there is little incentive to provide value here. tl;dr God help you if you plan to use this for anything OTHER than a keyboard.

No worries, I read the comments to learn new stuff. A lot of people still argue about the degree to which heat/fast-charging hurts lithium-ion batteries--most people know from their smartphones that Li-ion batteries often get worse over time, but it's starting to look like USB-C fast-charging might be making the problem worse due to the amount of heat that ~3A charging generates. Throw a protective case into the mix & you've basically got a Lithium-ion filled hot pocket. Phones are supposed to have thermal regulators to counteract this, but I have a Pixel 2 and it's pretty obvious that the battery has gotten worse with time.

I can get a 5A cable for half of this? I can get a 5Gbps/60W cable for the same price... I can get a 10Gbps/100W cable for a few bucks more... The price premium must be, so you can plug your clipped 'D' into a 'C'... -_-
