PSA for Anker users.
 
This is a fast-publish. Do not buy any +Anker #USB #TypeC   Powerline 3.1Gen2 cables from +Amazon.com. There are major errors with many of them as independently verified by +Benson Leung (n=4, 50%). I originally described this failure in my Plus post below. Linked is a video showing how you can use it to DESTROY your device.

Quickest way to check: if your Nexus 6P says "charging" instead of "charging rapidly", with this cable and the OEM charger, your cable is affected. (This test is not bulletproof, however.)

Anker has only partially responded to inquiries for clarification. Please get a properly USB-IF certified cable instead, some of which I've tested personally below.

Cease using the Anker cable immediately if you did purchase it! Anker needs to address this and very seriously needs to consider issuing a recall for this product.

USB-IF Certified cables: (that I can vouch for)
