Recommended USB --> USB C jacks/cords

Hi guys,

Can anyone recommend a good brand of USB-C jacks? I purchased a 3-pack online and they must be junk because the fit is not good and they loose connection.

Just trying to connect my USB HD to my new MacBook pro. Thanks!

What kind of adapters have you got? I've seen that problem only with those cheap tiny generic Chinese adapters that are always on sale at Amazon.

Amazon Basics and Apple have good USB-C to USB adapters.

Yeah, I haven't seen any problems with the ones that have a little length to them. It's just the tiny ones that are barely the size of a finger-tip that seem to be junk.

Interesting... The crappy ones I have are those tiny ones.

I ordered one of the flexible cloth types from eBay and I was really satisfied. And it was really inexpensive, to boot. For these sorts of things, eBay is much better than Amazon, which has a price floor that is much higher than eBay.

I would have expected ebay to source only counterfeit cables that look nice and work for a few months. I guess there is a chance you might get some from a company that made 100k for Belkin, and then made 100k exactly the same to sell through a no-name company...
