What devices support USB4?? Didn't even know it existed.

Laptop charging? Can't imagine you'd want to charge a phone or tablet at 100W. The poor battery longevity.

you don't charge at 100W. This is a cable spec, meaning it can go up to 100W before starting to overheat (and break, at some point). You can use it with a lower output charger (20W for example) or use a 100W output charger with the PD feature that can adapt its output to the device connected.

First announced in 2019, "USB4” (official spelling lacks a space) is finally appearing in some shipping computers, including Apple's new M1-powered iMacs, its M1-based Macbooks and Mac Mini and laptops with Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake laptops. You won't find a ton of devices marketed as USB4 at the moment, but a new generation of USB4-powered docks and peripherals is trickling in.

USB4 will only operate over the Type-C connector. Don’t expect to see a USB4 device or hub with old-fashioned Type-A ports.

...and spend a lot. I'm going hold off collecting more USB 3 cables. I have more unused micro usb cables than I have fingers and toes.

Thank you, OP. Bought 1.

Just bought this cable (10Gpbs) from Amazon for $15.xx. Should I return it?

I understand that, I'm just saying what device pulls close to 100W on USB-C? I guess MacBooks do at around 90W but they have big bricks and longer cables.

Thanks OP! Too bad they only allow 1 per order. Unfortunate and kinda sucks. I want to order 2 to save taxes as opposed to paying double the taxes. Ordering a bunch of items.

What is the difference between this and thunderbolt 3 and 4?

Is there a deal on a longer cable?

Thunderbolt needs to be certified by Intel and meet certain performance requirements.

"USB4 was made partly possible by Intel essentially giving up its Thunderbolt 3 rights to be used without all the licensing. USB4 is built on a Thunderbolt 3 backbone, so many of its capabilities are the same. Whereas USB 3.0's best version hit a ceiling of 20Gbps, USB4 is capable of 40Gbps, just like Thunderbolt 3 (and 4). And while you can still find both USB-A and USB-C forms for USB 3.0, USB4 is going strictly with the USB-C form factor."

"Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 are compatible with each other, but only Thunderbolt 4 guarantees those certain performance levels that power users need. USB4 is advantageous in licensing rights. Intel needs to get money if you want to use Thunderbolt 4, whereas USB4 is mostly free for anyone to use."

No, Shopper+/PrimeCables does not sell a longer cable

They only have a shorter 1.6Ft/0.5M cable

Are there any regular USB C-C cables for cheaper? I really don't need USB 4 to charge my phone.

These cables are really designed for laptops connected to USB-C monitors that can carry video, ethernet, other USB devices and also charge the laptop with just a single cable.
