No reviews, and no claims of them being fast charging capable.

Its 3 feet long, it'll be fast enough.

Phones drawing 3A PD are not going to blow up with a bad cable.

The cable needs a chip to enable higher current (≥3A)

Your $1000 should have its own protection circuitry against abnormal charging current while a cheap phone may not.

I guess mechanical damage to the USB-C port is non issue for you

I would be very careful about buying cheap cables. I bought an Amazon Basics USB-C cable that is rated for 5 Volt/# Amp (https://www.amazon.ca/AmazonBasics-USB- ... 01GGKZ4NU/) and after using it a few times, this cable quality was pretty flimsy as well as got very hot when using it is with my Original Google Pixel Charger. Thankfully, Amazon stands behind their products and gave me a refund.

Getting back to the Princess Auto cable, I would not want to use something without any power ratings to charge a phone. The same applies to chargers that don't have a CSA or UL US or CA certification. Lots of low-end junk out there which can cause all sorts of issues.

Check out Amazon or Prime Cables as they have some cables on sale with warranties and power ratings.
