Sticky FAQ about Bad USB Type-C Legacy cables:

Thanks to +Mike Trieu for the suggestion.

Q : Why is a bad 3A resistor a problem?
A: 3A is bad because all of these cables and adapters are legacy host port adapter cable, meaning the other end of the cable is Type-A plug. The Type-A port and the vast majority of the devices that have Type-A ports were never designed to support 3A charging.

The cable lies to the phone by telling the phone it's attached to a pure 3A charging path, like the C-to-C cable to the OEM 3A charger that ships with the Nexus 6P/5X. The phone will attempt to draw 3A, but that may damage the weaker device you have the Type-A end of the cable plugged into.

Q: If I have a 1A or 2A charger, am I safe?
No, if you have a weaker charger, you are actually at MORE risk because your phone/tablet/laptop may not know to stop at the 1A or 2A limit the charger advertises because of the improper identifier in the cable.

Q: Do C to C cables have the same problem?
No. C to C cables do not have the same problem because they are required to be straight pass through and do not have a pullup built into the cable. If the other end of the cable is Type-C, then as long as you plug into a 3A charger (like the one you get with Nexus phones), you will get fast charging in a safe way.

Q: Can you recommend a Type-A charger? Is <insert some random Type-A charger from Amazon> safe? Is it fast?
I cannot review every charger, but as long as you have a safe compliant cable with a 56kΩ resistor, the phone will limit itself to safe levels of charging for Type-A chargers and hubs.

Whether or not a particular charger works best for your phone in terms of charge speed I cannot say definitively. It really depends on a ton of factors, including the protocols your phone and the charger supports. Phones and charger may be able to support up to 2.4A using various proprietary protocols with a safe cable.

Q: Can you recommend a Type-C fast charger?
I like the Google one. 2 Type-C ports, 22.5W total power.

If you want a SUPER deluxe one, get the Pixel 2's charger. It will support up to 60W charging using USB PD. Fast charge your laptop. :)

Q: How can I test the cable myself?
If you have a Chromebook Pixel :

If you have a Nexus 6P/5X phone :

Or use CheckR:

Q: I want to keep my bad cable. Is that OK?
Be very careful what you plug it into. If you must keep it, tag the cable with a label that says "3A bad cable" or something so that in a few years when you forget about this controversy, you don't grab that cable and damage a charger accidentally.

Q: Where can I find the USB spec to read up on this more?
USB Type-C™ Cable and Connector Specification. With the continued success of the USB interface, there exists a need to adapt USB technology to serve newer computing platforms and devices as they trend toward smaller, thinner and lighter form-factors. Many of these newer platforms and devices are ...

And finally some not so bad news. Microsoft made Visual Studio Code open source. On github. Under MIT license. No matter how much you suspect Microsoft due to their history, this is a big step IMHO.

And before you ask, yes you can compile from source on Linux and MacOS X. Here's the Howto:

Wow, impressive... Especially since it's software only. Also... Some of their first videos are 3 years old... Why isn't this tech on all our devices yet?!
