[Dollarama] Mophie braided USB-C to USB-C 1.5m cable - $4

Found this at my local dollarama (Waterloo), braided and metal housing. Even something similar at Prime Cables goes for $7.

These cables go for $30 at apple for 1M and $25 on Amazon. Comes with 2 year warranty.

When will people learn Dollarama and electronics don't mix? Please if your going to spend 1k-3k on a laptop, do yourself a favor and get some decent cables. 5-10 dollar saving is hardly worth a fire hazard.

On a side note, I bought some cheap writing paper at Dollarama, and my eraser literally erases the page away. Never again.

did you guys use it to charge your laptop? apparently this cable is only rated up to 60W on Apple Q&A section. so if you are going to charge a 65W laptop, it is going to overheat. The Pro version can support up to 90W though.

Used to be on the cheap cable bandwagon. However, chargers and devices actually use the high end capabilities of cables now, and many are very sensitive to deficiencies in cables.

I started spending $6-15 for my Anker cables on Amazon, and it's made a huge difference. Will not go back to cheap cables.

Yeah back then usb cables were so low in current it didnt matter too much what you use. Now we're paying 1000$ for a devices, def do not want to turn it into a paper weight

I was charging a 45W laptop using a 45W AC adapter.

Exactly. Especially now that the difference in price between a garbage cable and a high end one is $4-10. Not worth the risk and frustration involved with crappy cables. My Anker cables outlast my devices.

I suppose it’s still safe enough to use as a data cable if you ensure it’s not being connected to a high capacity charging/data source

I like how everyone here is talking about cheap cables when this company makes good cables and they are sold 20$ on Amazon and 30$ at Apple. These are not cheap cables just because they're at dollorama. Like any other product, sometimes dollorama gets a box and puts it in stock. This product doesn't have a dollorama price printed on it so it's a real Morphie cable.

I've been using it every day for a couple of months now. No issues here. Mophie is a good brand and you can say that by looking at the cable, since it's thick and snap very well in the usb-c port. Also the junctions are rubbered to avoid damages by bending over time. 4$ for this kind of cable is a bargain as long as you use it to charge your smartphone. Probably it's not rated for higher voltages, and this could be the reason why the user above had problem charging its laptop and also why the stock has been sold to dollarama.
