These cables have been great, but there are 2 problems:
Most USB-C laptop chargers have a male end, so to use this cable I have to use a Female to Female adapter. The only adapter on the market is badly made and only works half the time and in one orientation, and it is also a bit bulky. Could you provide and option for a well made small F/F adapter?
Also, when you do have a USB-C male laptop charger, the cable only needs to be half the length. Could you do a half size one?
Lastly, a small power light would be great so you can see if the cable still has power (low brightness).
I have no definitive sources for this, but I recall reading at one point that the USB-C specifications doesn't allow for a female connector on an adapter, or cable. That's why they are so hard to find, and the ones out there are poorly engineered low quality unapproved Chinese items. The lack of good quality extenders/adapters seems consistent with this.
If someone could provide a citation to an official document which proves or disproves this, many here would no doubt appreciate it.
If that's the case my MacBook violated the specs
