    I like USB-C a lot and think it's the best cable ever produced. What do you like better?

      No I agree, the actual connectivity is wonderful, it does everything I need. It's just that the cable itself is such a hassle and always feels stiff and gets in the way. As far as I can tell there exists no practical "thin" USB-C cables and that sucks.

        If I ever buy cables, I always get them braided now, because they're guaranteed to bend and split otherwise. However, the one that came with my MX Keys is pretty thin, so thin cables exist.

          >because they're guaranteed to bend and split otherwise
          What the hell are people doing to make a basic cable have torn insulation?
          I've had apple and old Samsung cables fray at the strain relief but every other cable has been fine

          I actually detest braided cables because they're stiff and offer nothing for me.
          I get silicone cables now, they are actually flexible and no permanent kinks.

        the probllem is the technology we use to transport eletricity.
        namely- copper.
        and copper "hardens with work" as it is called.
        it means that if you squish copper it becomer harder, and with hardness, it becomes brittle.

        and this is why you want a stiff cable.
        less bendy = less pinching of the copper in the bends = less work hardening = cable less brittle and thus has longer lifetime.

        you also got shielding, and theres several lines in the core on top of that all both of which add thickness, so the geometry of bending more pronounced, so more cable stiffness

        USB-C male is actually the port and USB-C female is the plug, so it's correct.

          That looks like a totally normal USB C cable. What's wrong with it?

            nta but i think it relates to how usb-c is only a physical connector spec, the actual function of the port depends on what the manufacturer allows it to do. not all usb-c cables are created equal

    Thick cables are more durable and transfer data/energy better. My opinion is to make them even fatter.
