Amazon currently has a five pack of cables from Anker on sale for just $25.99. This is a great price for a slew of USB-C cables, which are going to be a great pickup for those buying a new phone this year – seeing as many phones have made the switch from micro USB to USB-C now.
The Anker PowerLine cables are some of the best ones available right now, and while these are not the braided ones from the PowerLine+ lineup, they are still pretty rugged. These are a bit thicker than your traditional cables, so they can take more of a beating and get bent a bit more. Additionally, these are USB-C to USB 3.0, so you can plug them into your laptop or car charger, or really anything else. This 5-pack comes with 4-inch, 3-feet and 6-feet long cables. The 4-inch long cable is one that is really only good for plugging into a laptop for syncing, or rooting your phone. while the 6-foot long one is good for putting next to your bed so you can still use your phone while you're in bed. If you just picked up a brand new smartphone, then you likely are in need of some new cables to be able to plug in that smartphone in different places. And let's be honest, it never hurts to have a few extra USB-C cables lying around, as you never know when one might die and you need to replace it.
