Hi everyone!

When I'm at home I use wireless charging, but next week I'll fly to London to spend the Christmas holidays with my family.
I'll stay at my grandma house for a couple of weeks and, as I always do when I'm there, I'll charge my phone overnight with the good old Apple 5W charger.

I will soon upgrade to a 15PM, so I'm gonna need a USB-A to USB-C cable to charge the phone.
The question is, which one?

I saw many people complaining about certain cables being too thick for some cases, so I need one that should be compatible with most of them.

I'd like a reliable of course but I don't want to spend a fortune for something that I will only use occasionally (as I said, wireless charger at home so I won't be using the cable once I'm back).

I was thinking Anker? Any other recommendation?

Thank you!

I use this one for Carplay on my 15 PM since my car doesn't have USB-C outlets. It works great for me, never had any issues. Anker is also always a good option like you mentioned. I use their C-C cables for charging at home.

The anker cable didn’t fit my first finewoven case but the belkin one does.

Both cables work fine with my second finewoven case.
