It occurs to me that I could buy a USB-C to

Not all USB-C kit is born equal. Because the standard has various
voltages available instead of the older standard's 5V only, there is
the very real possibility of damage with sub-standard cables in

That said, reputable devices and cables will be fine. Just don't go for
anything unbranded and make sure the power end complies with QC3.

Google's assertion seems to be in response to the cheap, shoddy end of
the market. The whole point of the standard is interoperability and
reducing WEEE by making things compatible.

Your lordships pass, your kingdoms pass; and Time
