You don't need a TB3 cable.

Just look for the 10gbps or Gen 2 in the description and get a cable from Anker, Monoprice, AmazonBasics or Plugable. These are always 3.3ft (1m) or less see the table here https://community.cypress.com/docs/DOC-10693

  1. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D7NS3DD (cheapest of the bunch)
  2. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=24285
  3. https://www.amazon.com/Anker-Powerline-Delivery-Matebook-Chromebook/dp/B072JYDQ7N
  4. https://plugable.com/products/usbc-c100/

    These brands can safely be recommended.

    I distinguished this comment -- which is probably a slight abuse my mod privileges -- to signal that I know more of these affairs to avoid the "A said X, B said Y" dilemma. You need to trust me :)

This is their Gen 2 in 1ft length. www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D7RZ1VS

They also have 3ft. www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D7NS3DD

All in a variety of colors. Noticeably thicker than their gen 1 cables.

I see, so my cable list should look like this:

  • Basic cable, HiSpeed only, 3 amps (60W), no e-mark (passive wires only) (Amazon example)
  • Basic cable, HiSpeed only, 5 amps (100W), with e-mark (Amazon example)
  • SuperSpeed cable, 3 amps (60W), with e-mark, up to 2m
  • SuperSpeed cable, 5 amps (100W), with e-mark, up to 2m
  • SuperSpeed+ cable, 3 amps (60W), with e-mark, up to 1m (Amazon example)
  • SuperSpeed+ cable, 5 amps (100W), with e-mark, up to 1m (Amazon example)

    Will a SuperSpeed+ cable work for Thunderbolt 3, or is there an additional requirement (and corresponding e-mark) ?

    While I do understand the technical realities, this is complex for consumers...
