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; as far as I'm concerned, we're all here to learn amirite. Actually, a lot of people still argue about the degree to which heat/fast-charging hurts lithium-ion batteries--we all know that li-ion batteries get worse over time, but it's starting to look like USB-C fast-charging might actually be making the problem worse due to the amount of heat that 3A is guaranteed to generate. Throw a protective case into the mix & you've basically got a Li-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 this is only so effective. I think we all know on some fundamental level that you can't get something for nothing (especially when it comes to physics), but fast-charging claims to be doing exactly that. Until modern battery tech improves, it's likely that the balance between overall battery life and charging speed sits somewhere between 2.1-2.4A. (ಥ_ಥ)

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'... -_-

For around double the price I could get a 10 Gbps cable and for a little bit less than this I can get a 480 Mbps cable. So what exactly is the deal with this cable? It is neither cheap enough, nor is it 10 Gbps.

"...specially made to connect external hardware to Drop keyboards..." Like the Apple MacBook Pro shown in the photographs? Seriously, how is this C to C cable different than any other of the bazillions available? Answer: It really isn't. Now, if you guys would have called it "The Drop LIMITED EDITION USB-C to USB-C cable" well, that would obviously have been a completely different story!
