I have a 6ft one (non-Morphie) from Dollarama that does fast charging for some adapters. For $4, it's worth the risk.

Isn't the risk that you damage your phone? Or is that only for A-C cables?

Where does it say this is a 3.1 cable? (I didn't see that it states 3.1 in the picture in the dollarama thread) A lot of USB-C cables are only USB 2.0

Don't know if there is such thing as a awesome brand of cables. But Mophie is a well established brand that's been around awhile. So it's not some no-name vendor.

Mophie has been around a long time. They have made battery cases for iPhones for years. The Apple store sells the Mophie USB c to USB c cable (1m) for 29.95. Great deal. I had just picked up one today and was going to post.

This Dollarama one looks different than the Apple store one.
I always have to wonder if Dollarama bought a stockload of rejected cables.

I think it's only for usb-A where a pull-up resistor should be used.

Thanks OP, but please edit the title: it is 5 feet in length (not 4 ft) and it is a "charging cable", not a USB 3.1 data cable. The manufacturer does not claim USB 3.1 and does not even call it "data" or "sync" cable, which usually means that it is only USB 2.

Yup, I just went to pick one up and there is no indication that it's USB 3.1

The cable connector looks long enough to house an e-marker chip, so I was hoping it was a 3.1 cable, but I doubt it since no where on the package does it say anything of the sort.

edit: it might be a 3.1 after all as indicated in OP's link

It says charging cable, so no data transfer? I don't know how I feel about buying cable from a dollar store, they are known for crap quality disposable items.
