Techsea USB C Cable


These cables from Techsea are USB-C to USB-A cables, so they will work with your existing chargers to charge the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus. They are also selling these in a pack of two. Which is great, as you can use one in the car and another at your desk. On top of that, these are braided cables. Which makes them a whole lot more durable than some of the others out there, and the one in the Galaxy S8's box.

AUKEY USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable

AUKEY has a five pack of USB-A to USB-C Cables here that work great on the Galaxy S8. In this pack of five, you get three different lengths. Three are 3.3-feet, which is the normal length for charging cables. You also get one really long one that measures in at 6.6-feet long and a pretty short one that comes in at 1.1-feet long.

CableCreation (10ft) Braided USB-C to Type C Cable


This cable from CableCreation is also a braided cable, but instead of being USB-C to USB-A, it's a USB-C to USB-C cable, which means it won't work with your existing chargers. But if you do own the Macbook, Macbook Pro, or Chromebook Pixel, it means you can plug it into your laptop.

CHOETECH is another popular name in the space of cables, and they have a set of three USB-C to USB-A cables here. These are braided cables as well, which means they'll be super durable, always a good thing. The three cables here are measured at about 3.3-feet long, which is the average length for charging cables.

Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable

Anker has their own USB-C cable which is also braided, and it's available in either a 3.3-foot long cable or a 6.6-foot long cable. It's also available in black or red (the red looks great and really stands out). Anker claims that these are the world's strongest cables, which means they should be able to stand up to kids and pets.

Here's another option for those looking for a USB-C to USB-C cable. This is also from AUKEY and it's a braided cable, so it'll be nice and strong. This is one of the few that we have had the opportunity to test out and it works great. It's durable, and plenty long.

Tronsmart USB-C to USB-A Cable

Here we have an option from Tronsmart, it's a USB-C to USB-A cable, unfortunately it's not a braided one, but it is pretty thick so it should be somewhat durable. It's a 6-foot long cable, and perhaps the cheapest 6-foot long cable on the market right now. It does work with all USB-C devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops.
