[Amazon.ca] 3 Pack USB C Charge Cable, [1.6+3.3+10ft] 3A Fast Charging Nylon Braided ($5.49 w/ coupon, no tax)

It's got good reviews, and is on sale for $8.49, which is the historical lowest according to CCC. The $3 coupon on the product page brings it down to $5.49, and no tax showed up on checkout.
There's also the Rakuten cashback on top.
Note that it's charge only: no data sync.

Edit: Fixed the link. Thank you for mentioning it.
Edit 2: Struck data sync note, as some Q&As mention that the cables support data transfer. That would probably be at regular USB 2.0 speeds.

Yes you are right. I didn't go to the final step. Thanks for posting. I cancelled the USB-C to USB adapter just ordered, then bought this cable package because it is cheaper and more convenient than the adapter.

This only does charging just letting you know.

Edit: nvm looks like it's compatible with data.

It's a great deal! Now I am just trying to look for USB-C both ends cables for around this price.
Koodo: 11gbs $35 (24 months) (2 lines)
Bell: 500mbps $58 (12 months)

It fully says data in the item title. Also, it has a data transfer speed rating in the listing. Maybe you're looking at a different one?

The description says Sync as well but at USB 2.0 rates. In fact, I don't think the Quick Charge would work (which it claims it can do) if the cable didn't have the data lines.

Anyone knows if this is 'certified' cable? Heard too many horror stories about substandard cables.

Only Apple forces manufacturers to have their cables "certified".

Yes, but there are USB-IF certified cables. Ensuring that USB-C cables are built to spec is a good way to prevent your phone blowing up when fast-charging.

I personally wouldn't want to charge my $1000 phone with a $1 cable

Bought these 2 weeks ago at regular price...

Can confirm they work with fastcharge. Can't really go wrong with 3 USB C cables with different lengths and supports fast charge for $5.
