Default Oh no! USB Type-C cable problems

I've read about the power delivery capabilities of USB Type-C: a maximum of 100W (20V @ 5A).

Exclamation Re: Oh no! USB Type-C cable problems

Danger! Poor quality USB Type-C cables can damage or destroy your devices (or even cause a fire)!

A list of cables tested by APC Magazine: http://tinyurl.com/apc427-usb

If Amazon can do that , so can eBay!
