Amazon.com has added non-standardized USB-C / USB Type-C cables to its "Prohibited listings" for the Electronics section, Google engineer Benson Leung -- who has been on a crusade of sorts for quite some time now -- has pointed out. The full line reads as follows: "Any USB-C™ (or USB Type-C™) cable or adapter product that is not compliant with standard specifications issued by "USB Implementers Forum Inc."
In other words, the manufacturers currently attempting to sell shoddy USB-C cables or cables that aren't USB-C at all but claim they are can do so no longer on Amazon. Good news, to be sure.
