Thanks OP.
Just keep in mind that the product you linked is an older version, based on silicon technology, so it is bulkier than most recent products.
For $3 more ($35.99 after $10 coupon), one can get the newest version: same brand, higher wattage (65W vs. 61W), same number of ports, GaN (gallium nitride) technology, significantly smaller in size:

Anyone have a recommendation on an USB-C to USB-C "E-Mark data cable" that'll work at the power rating (65W) of this charger? I found an Aukey cable https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07R96 ... D95D&psc=1 but, I would like to keep my final costs down. If not, I just might wait for the RAVPower GaN Tech 90W 2-Port PD Wall Charger https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B083ZB ... K3DP&psc=1 to come back on sale since it comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable and I don't really need the USB-A port that comes with this one.

Dollarama has a Mophie brand USB-C to USB-C cable ($4) that can do around 3A as a PD cable, which translates into 60W PD at 20V.
This particular $4 Mophie cable does not have an "E-Mark" chip, but my understanding is that an "E-Mark" chip is only required for cables rated 100W PD (or 5A).
I tested the Mophie cable on my Lenovo laptop with an aftermarket 61W PD charger, and charging is almost as fast as the original 65W Lenovo charger and the cable does not get warm.
The only issue I have with the $4 Mophie cable from Dollarama is the fact that it is only 5ft long. I have another no-name 10ft long USB-C cable (bought for $6 from ebay before the pandemic) that also claims to support 3A as a PD cable.

Thanks OP! Debating between this and the newer one.

Newer one doesn't have a coupon for $10 off anymore. @ahoroba

Amazon's "dynamic pricing" strikes again. The $3 coupon is no longer offered, price is now $29.99 for the charger in the OP (black colour, the white one is more expensive).

What XPS 13 do you have?
I have a 27 watt USB c PD charger from my cell phone and my XPS 13 9350 doesn't even detect it
I'm wondering if it's just not enough power

If you want to use PD chargers for laptops, you have to pay attention to two things: power and "maximum voltage".
Your XPS 13 laptop requires a PD charger that can output 20 volts and around 60W of power (although it might charge, more slowly, even with 40-45W of PD power, as long as the output voltage is 20V).
Most (all?) PD chargers under 30W will not offer a voltage output of 20V, simply because they are targeted to cellphones and tablets.
All PD chargers over 60W should have the 20V capability, so try to get one of those for your laptop (but always check the voltage specification to ensure that it is indeed capable of outputting 20V).
