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.
The CNTRL and ALT keyboards have 2 USB-C ports. Even though it requires a USB 3.0 type a cable to fully power the device (as in LEDS and diffuser work as intended along with the passthrough port). But unfortunately the USB type C ports on these keebs only uses USB 2.0 speeds etc. So as many people like myself would have loved for them to be USB 3.1-3.2 passthrough (so we could plug in a USB type C thumb drive and get USB 3.1/3.2 speeds or charge our phones since the iphone type C to lightning cable (with the silver lightning cable side, not gold) charges in 20 minutes flat. Forgive me for using probably most of those usb standards the wrong way as I get confused as to which one is for data, data and charging, data/charging/4k-8k video. Long story short this cable is made just for the annoying (but still useful) ALT and CNTRL keebs. Also if you plug in the OEM cable on your ALT or CNTRL into a USB-A fast charging port on the back of your mobo (sometimes like red or orange etc depending on the brand) the LEDS and diffuser leds will shine brighter than any keeb i own.
