    Not all usb-c cables are created the same. Benson Leung at Google has reviewed numerous cables, and there are quite a few non-compliant cables. These cables can result in weird, or even dangerous behavior.

    Recommended USB Type-C Legacy Cables:https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/w...cUvbUpU5296995 (Benson's Amazon Profile)
    You guys can also follow his Google+: https://plus.google.com/+BensonLeung/posts

    The USB C Adapter I bought from Tronsmart:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018S827GU...cUvbUpU5296995
    The C TO A Cable I bought from iOrange:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010VFFU1W...cUvbUpU5296995

    If you don't want to risk anything make sure you always use the compliant cables/adapters

    Or to be even safer, buy an OEM cable.

    I have Apple laptop that uses USB-C and I would feel safe with one recommended as supporting MacBook etc that relies on one. Anker 60W 5-port with USB-C

    Assuming Samsung is using a compliant cable on their non compliant port.

    Technically USB C doesn't have true Quickcharge capability. Samsung and Qualcomm break from Spec and allow quickcharging.

    So I got my extra cable from spigen today with a case. Which single or double car charger should I get?

    I can still plug my wife's iPhone 5s into the new car charger if we get a double right? This C stuff is all new to me.

    And I can use the new cable to plug into my hp laptop? Thanks ahead

    And will the first one charge my wife's iPhone? I'm guessing just the note 7 needs a c type and not the iPhone obviously?

    There's a fast wireless car charger on Amazon that's pretty cool. Doesn't charge fast when the screen is on though. Saves wear on your usb port too.

    Hi, can someone tell me if this car charger will support Quick Charge? Or can recommend another device similar like this one that is small?

    It does support quick charge 2.0 and 3.0. It quick charges my Note 5 quickly now (via fast-charge). I think there might still be some uncertainty with the Note 7 , USB C, and various chargers in relation to charging speeds though.

    You can buy QC 2.0 wall chargers or QC 3.0 wall charger. Just use a type c to a cable to charge your note 7 via A USB A port charger.
