    To clarify, I know there are a lot on the market. Looking for one that has good ratings at a reasonable price.

    I like the monoprice ones. They feel almost exactly like the Google ones

    How long does it need to be? Is USB 2.0 fast enough or do you need USB 3.0/3.1 speeds?

    USB-C 3.0/3.1 rated cables typically stop around 6' long and have heavy jackets, making them less flexible. USB-C 2.0 rated cables can be found up to 12' long.

    Here are a few places to look:

    I have a 10 foot micro USB cable from monoprice. Then use a USB micro to USB C adapter.

    I think I have less than $4 spent for this setup. Works very well. Used it with several different devices and different chargers.

    I bought this one last year for my Pixel

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU6005328

    It works great with the included adaptor for the phone and also was less than $10. It's super long and very high quality. I am a huge Aukey fan.

    I agree with the Monoprice suggestions. MP is great for all cables: HDMI, USB, etc., and they often have discount promotions, free shipping, etc.

    All of these have the standard USB large plug on one side. Looking for a longer version than the short one that came with the Pixel 2.

    In his reviews Benson often says "for your older devices using usb c". Will these all support the fast charge method used in LG V20?

    Are any of these in Ebay? I don't shop Amazon.

    I have the regular Pixel 2 and also the XL. These three foot cords are not going to work for my wife and I. We need something longer to charge but also gives the power charging. I am not initially seeing anything with Monoprice. Any ideas before I venture into the Amazon wormhole?

    But that is not the same type of cord as the one that comes with the phone. Or am I missing something here?

    If you are looking for a usb-c to usb-c over 6 feet you are out of luck.

    There is the closet you will get to long for usb-c to usb-c.

    So then C to C must have a 3-foot limitation, or loses latency, power, etc., beyond that.

    Do you get the same charging power of the type of cord you posted? I saw plenty of those looking around.

    I dont have any long cords without adapters at this time. I just ordered some 6 ft cables from Amazon. I will see if I can get fast charge on them.

    I just picked up these:

    I use this 6ft c-c cord and I can confirm it does charge in "rapid mode" with the google supplied power brick.

    Hope I am doing this right. First time replying on someones post. Just thought I would give you my two cents. I bought this cable pack from Amazon about 6 months ago. I use the 10 ft. cord everyday for a good number of hours (I use my phone to do all my business on). I have a Samsung Galaxy S8. I use the cable along with my fast Samsung charging adapter that came with my phone. The setup works great, still going strong and is always using FAST CHARGING. I too needed a longer length cord for my business use. I didnt want to have to give up any rapid charging ability to do it either. Not saying this will work for everybody, but it does for me for 6+ months now.

    FYI that website is not the real Benson from Google, it is a clickbait site that tries to make money from you buying things. I would suggest avoiding it.

    Welcome to the forums. Volutz cables are awesome and the only ones I use. Unfortunately the OP was looking for C to C cables and I don't think Volutz offers that.
