    Does anyone know where I can get one of these? My searching has probably been insufficient, but I am quite surprised they do not seem to be readily available. In fact, given Apple put USB C on the new Macbook and announced it was the future and all we need (blah blah blah) it does seem to me very odd that they can't actually be bothered to produce a cable to link it to their own phones!

    Incidentally, I like the single USB port. I use their multi-adapter as a docking device at home, and when on the move I don't need all that, so it works well. However, when travelling, it would be good to have just the laptop power adapter, and be able to charge the iPhone from the laptop with a simple cable.

    I actually have the same cable and it's worked very well for me.

    Off topic, I like your avatar. I had the zx81 kit with a memotech 64.

    Just make sure you read the reviews on the cables.. I was just on XDA reading on their news and I've read that some USB-c cables are frying the motherboards on both phones and pc/macbooks.

    No. I have a similar cable. It charges the iPad Pro at 12W, the same as the native charger.

    Ok that's kinda what I was referring to. So it charges @native speeds.
