    The description mentions 5a charging, which contradicts the product title listing 3a. Which is it?
    A shopper on Nov 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The product description has been adjusted to reflect 3A of power. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
    Does this cable use 56kΩ resistors? Nintendo is now recommending this when charging the Switch.
    Robert S on Apr 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Looking at the cable closely I don’t see a 56k resistor or provisions for one. Monoprice customer service is very good, they should provide a definite answer.
    Will this cable work to power a Nintendo Switch?
    Scott S on Jul 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Select Series 3.1 USB-C to USB-A Gen 2 cable is capable of charging the Nintendo Switch, but will not pass Data.
    Will this work on Essential PH1 phone? Will it pass data if I connect it to a computer? Will it work with my car usb through the app Android Auto? Thanks

    Is there a longer version available?
    A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: One meter is currently the maximum length we are able to make for this configuration. You can also consider going with our Select Series 2.0 USB-C to USB-A cable (PID 27928). This cable has a maximum length of 4 meters.
    Will this power and pass data between a Pixel 2 and Windows 10 via a USB 3 port on the Windows machine?
    A shopper on Jan 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about the Pixel 2, but it does power OR pass data on the 1st gen Pixel. You will have to select on the phone what you want the usb port to do, power the phone or pass data.
    Will this cable work on using a power bank to the Nintendo Switch?
    Andy A on Nov 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The Select Series 3.1 USB-C to USB-A Gen 2 is capable of charging the Nintendo Switch via a Power Bank.
    Can this be used to connect a Mac desktop machine and a MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, early 2016) in Target Disk Mode? (Apple says their cable is only for charging and won't work in this configuration.)
    A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We are also aligned with Apple when it comes to connecting via Target Disk Mode.

    Fixed Android Auto disconnects!
    I was having random Android Auto disconnects every few minutes in my 2016 Golf R when connected to my Google Pixel 2 XL via an Insignia-brand cable I got at Best Buy. Replacing it with this Monoprice cable completely solved the issue, and this cable also cost less, even including 2-day shipping!

    USB-C cable
    Works flawlessly, no issues with cable detection or slow charging like the cheaper cables. They are so handy, I have more than 5 so I won't misplace them.

    Awesome Quality!
    I bought this to use with my car charger. It works great and helps to charge my Galaxy Note 8 very quickly! Couldn't be happier with the pricing or quality of this cord!

    Great cable for great price
    I got these for my shop to charge cellphones and transfer data. They work excellently with all the USB-C phones I've tried. I'm completely satisfied with this cable.

    Quality cable, excellent value.
    Fits well in my S8+, fast charges and I would purchase again if necessary. Only wish it was a little longer but that is just personal preference, not an issue with the quality.
