Cable Thoughts

more_vert
Hi. I'm looking for a more attractive braided cable to go with my CTRL High Profile (which I love). Can I just use any USB A to USB C cable such as this one https://www.amazon.com/Anker-Powerline-USB-C-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B07G12WYCG?ref_=ast_sto_dp I know drop has a very nice USB C to USB C cable, but I'm not clear on what if any advantage that would have over A to C. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Great. Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. Cables are pretty confusing these days. Even the USB spec is hard to keep track of!

Yes, any USB A to C cable will work! The only thing to watch out for is that the RGB lights use a good amount of current, so really cheap cables might have trouble powering the board. The cable you linked to should be more than enough to power the keyboard because it's for charging phones. Keyboards use really low speed communication so you don't have to worry too much about good shielding or "high speed" ratings.
