Hi,

Most phones are coming nowadays with a usb type c to c cable, and charger, which is very short. Reference photo- https://www.google.com/search?q=usb...ECAMQBA&biw=1366&bih=626#imgrc=wnrVlwEbqFy_qM Looking for a vfm brand which supports fast charging but don't need any cable which is like a meter or more long. Even half a meter would do.

Also looking for a converter/connector to convert the type c to c to a normal usb like this https://www.google.com/search?q=usb...ECA8QAw&biw=1366&bih=626#imgrc=x5UYHJrsYi0mSM so that it can be connected to a usb port. Kindly suggest.

+ @Tejas01 @CapriAnupam

Thanks

I don't think you would get a wire of less than 0.5m. Even I got Amazon Basics for 7+ which was 1m. Get a braided one which will have less strain on wire when bent.
Thanks. Anything for the converter/connector to connect it to a pc/laptop? The Amazon basics one are non braided one's only. Isn't boat selling these wires?

I didn't get you... That converter connects directly to your pc/laptop. The other end is where you connect your USB-c wire.
The Amazon wire I posted is double-braided one. Check screenshot..

Sorry I missed that Amazon basics one being a braided wire, my bad.
The screenshot that you posted in the last reply, both sides are type c to c. The usb ports in my system are the old one's in which a normal pd can be inserted. It is for wires like this https://www.google.com/search?q=usb...ECA8QAw&biw=1366&bih=626#imgrc=x5UYHJrsYi0mSM
How will type c to c wire, like from the last post, fit in a port like this https://www.google.com/search?q=usb...ECBoQBA&biw=1366&bih=626#imgrc=qIBJwWQLqyEvaM

There's no need of any converter, don't be so confused. you actually want a USB 3.0 Type A to USB 3.0 Type C cable.
this is the best quality , can tell from experience
https://www.tatacliq.com/aukey-cb-a...sb-a-to-usb-c-cable-black/p-mp000000007885988
can buy it blindly, but yes it's 1.2meter which should not be a problem.
can buy cheap also like this -
https://www.amazon.in/AmazonBasics-Type-C-USB-Male-Cable/dp/B01GGKYKQM/ref=sr_1_3_mod_primary_lightning_deal?dchild=1&keywords=usb+type+a+to+c+cable&qid=1613992072&sbo=Tc8eqSFhUl4VwMzbE4fw/w==&smid=AT95IG9ONZD7S&sr=8-3
this 1 is shorter in length, what you were asking for.

you can also type "usb type a to c cable" in Amazon search box for various results for this type of cable.

unless you need more than 18w no point going for a usb c to usb c - so a converter is useless.
just get the usb a to usb c suggested above.

I will leave a comment on braided wires since they are kind of an obsession for buyers. In the past, I had purchased multiple wires from AliExpress and all of them were braided because they sell well.

However, when I measured the current for these wires, they were extremely lossy and provided 1.3A output connected to a 2A charger. In contrast, the cables that came with the phones were able to provide 1.95A. Thus, braided on the outside means nothing if the wire uses cheap materials that provide a lot of resistance on the inside.

I would normally go for cables from Anker or Mi since I have found them to be of good quality in general.

this is true only for some cheap quality braided chinese cables available at amazon or aliexpress, other braided cables are premium and provides excellent output. some brands to consider are - Anker, Aukey, Mi, AmazonBasics.

Thank you brother. I didn't know that it's called type a to c my bad.
A question, will have to buy 2 separate cables, one type c to type c for the charger and one that type a to c. Instead of the latter is there any converter/connector that does the job? The connector/converter thing is needed just to connect it to the pc to transfer the files.
unless you need more than 18w no point going for a usb c to usb c - so a converter is useless.
just get the usb a to usb c suggested above.
Well this article was in the to read list https://www.gsmarena.com/dont_just_..._for_the_samsung_galaxy_note10-news-38837.php Did you mean the same what's written here? Any TLDR version that you can share here?

there 're converters available for your requirements like these -
https://www.amazon.in/HOSS®-Type-Fe...1614002368&sprefix=type+a+to+c,aps,299&sr=8-3

https://www.amazon.in/BLENDIA-Adapt...1614002368&sprefix=type+a+to+c,aps,299&sr=8-7

though it will serve your purpose but these kind of converters aren't very reliable.
In my opinion it's better to buy a second cable. (It's what I do, I also don't 've a USB C port on my motherboard)
use your default cable that comes with charger USB C to C for charging.
and buy a USB A to C for use with laptop. You probably need it for data transfer only, so there's no need to buy a high end cable
but if you like you can buy something premium like I mentioned in above post.

Reliable as in? Cheap Chinese one's so bound to go kaput anytime? I am looking for a converter just to transfer to and from the pc.

It is very very short. I would need an extension just for this thing. So, thought of ordering a not so long charging cable and a converter. My budget for both originally was Rs. 500. Any type c to type c wire (normal length would also do) and type c to a converter/connector (which is kinda reliable with decent transfer speed) in this budget?

Things have gone expensive, I am afraid, after Covid and anti-China sentiments. You will need to extend the budget to at least a 1000 bucks to get a good quality cable. Generally, Amazon basics cable are good to go, I have had a positive experience with them. They might be costly, but effective in the long run.

I am very happy with Portronics cables. They are one of the cheapest branded good quality cables. Also have Boat cable. No need to spend 1k.
Also, didn't your phone come with a Type-C to Type-C cable already. So, just buy a normal Type-A to Type-C cable. These are the ones I have -

Ok, I 'm glad you finally purchased the cables. Nothing wrong with the cables, data transfer speed depends on your PC and phone's storage. Micro SD card installed in phone is slower than inbuilt UFS storage, similarly SSD on PC is faster than HDD.
To check read write speeds try CrystalDiskMark info for PC and some similar app for your phone

Thanks. Is there any way to check read write speeds of a phone connected to a pc with a usb? That software tells us speed of a pc or a laptop and not if connected via wire.
Transferring of jpegs, around 5000 basically ss's taken in phone, is taking 4+ hours from the pc to the phone.
