The cable itself is very thick and sturdy and i dont see it breaking anytime soon.

Initial thoughts as only received today!
Seems well made but no long-term assessment available.
USB 3.0 type-A (normal one for computers & laptop) at one end. USB type-C (reversible) at the other. 2m cable (i.e. typically double the length or more of cables you would get with your mobile phone). No more annoying Windows "...you can transfer faster if you use a superspeed USB 3 port".
Note the blue connector colour – you must have similar port on your computer to get the speed benefit of the cable.
USB-C connector feels a little tight on removal but inserts fine.
Crude transfer speed test (win 7 standard desktop copy/paste from normal HDD to Samsung S8 internal storage):
310MB file approx. 8s (USB 2 cable with USB-C adapter)
310MB file approx. 2.5s (olixar cable)
So, approx 3 times the speed. Happy with this.
I'd imagine theoretical cable transfer to be 5Gbps (due to being USB 3.0).
Transfer test almost certainly bottlenecked by HDD.

Designed for connection of USB-C hardware to USB supported devices
Designed to connect smartphones, tablets and other USB-C (USB Type-C) equipped hardware to USB powered equipment so you can charge and sync your device.
USB 3.0 super speed transfers
The cable features USB 3.0 for the super speed data transfer rates, which means you can transfer content to and from your phone in seconds rather than minutes.
Reversible USB-C connector
Unlike earlier standards of USB connections, the USB-C connector is fully reversible and so can be inserted into a USB-C compatible smartphone or tablet with ease.
Allows simultaneous charging and syncing of your USB-C Device
This quality cable allows you to connect your USB-C compatible hardware to your laptop or desktop, in order to charge your phone and exchange / sync data simultaneously.
Compatible with a USB mains charger and a PC
With a standard USB connection this cable is compatible with a mains charger featuring a USB input, as well as a laptop or PC - so you have complete flexibility for your charging needs.
Additional cable length for hard to reach locations
If your charging port or USB mains adapter is in a difficult to reach location, a standard USB-C cable may not be long enough for you to safely charge your phone. With the Olixar Long USB-C Charging Cable and its 2 metres length, you can be sure your phone can connect to USB powered ports for charging and syncing without difficulty.
Tested to be compliant with USB-A to USB-C standards
This cable has been tested to be compliant with the USB-A to USB-C standard. Non-compliant cables can attempt to draw as much as 3 amps (3A), which could potentially damage connected equipment when they are not compatible with this high power output.
Don't take the risk, as the Olixar USB-C Charging Cable has been tested to ensure it's compliant with USB-A to USB-C standards, featuring the required 56kΩ resistor necessary to protect your devices.
