After the Traditional USB port became history, USB Type-C is undoubtedly the future, thanks to its reversible design, super-fast speed, and high power output. Apple and Google both bet big on the standard’s inevitable ubiquity by using it in the new MacBook and both Nexus phones( and now Pixel).
But it will take some time to replace the usual Type-A and -B connectors in a full cycle, with an already wide acceptance of this USB standard there are few who are planning to take the fruits early. there’s a whole world of third-party cables out there that haven’t been fully tested, just waiting to destroy your new device.
Luckily, one Google engineer is working for us in order to try, test, and shame them on amazon as well as on the web. without going much into technicality I would recommend having a look at the google sheet or consolidated website in order to check if the new shiny charger you are going to buy is worth it or not.
If you are buying from amazon you can visit his profile and the recommend list he has on the site.

#Somethings to improve:
We belive nothing can be made perfect in the first try,while this one makes it real easy for you if you are using a chromebook/macboook and charging it with UCB C and using other USB ports, But this is almost not feasible when you are working with just your phone and want to charge other devices as the length of the cord is so short.
