Amazon currently has a five-pack of AUKEY's USB-C to USB-A cables on sale for just $15.99 right now. This is a great price for a five-pack of cables, and a great buy, especially if you have just picked up a new smartphone that is using a USB-C port.
This five-pack of cables from AUKEY has cables in different lengths. Included here is three 3-feet long cables, and one 6-feet and one 1-foot long cables. The 1-foot long cable will likely be good for using with a car charger. These are not braided cables, which is why they are much cheaper. But they will work just fine, since they do sport USB 3.0 speeds, so they can also be used for transferring data from your smartphone to your laptop and vice versa. While these are not braided, AUKEY says that they should still be pretty durable and last for up to 6,000 or more bends. So they should still withstand kids and pets getting a hold of them.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast.
