Which USB-C cable should I buy?

There is a new USB cable that is starting to be shipped with the most recent gadgets.

The new Nexus 5X and 6P devices both use USB Type-C, a vastly improved power connector that will soon be used more universally for our connected gadgets. But because it is relatively new, one should be aware of some potential problems in getting faulty or improperly engineered cables.

A cable that is not up to the proper standards could cause serious damage to your nice new device, so you want to be very careful when purchasing supplemental cables.

Benson Leung, a Google engineer who is well versed in the technology, has reviewed the following cable as meeting the standards and specifications needed to delivers safe and adequate connections for all of your devices.

All of the below cables will meet your needs.
