    Anyone buy any extras yet? The USB C to USB A is horribly short (6") so I need to replace it.

    Any luck with One plus one cables? I see they have a longer 3' cable.

    Mod edit:

    To help with figuring out which cables and chargers are safe for your Nexus 6P we will post a link to cables and chargers that you can purchase.

    Here in an app that will let you know if your USB Type C to USB A is compliant: CheckR - Android Apps on Google Play

    Here are the cables that are compliant:


    Here are the chargers that are in compliance:

    I need another charger, car charger & more cables too. I tried to use my $50.00 play store credit but the C->A cable is out of stock... And they don't even list a car charger.

    If anyone finds anything, I'd love to know about it.

    I know in MKBHD's review video, he had his plugged in to a One+ cable. He didn't mention anything about the quality or whether rapid charging had any issues over that cable. Mostly, I'm just commenting because I know I'll want to keep track of this thread as the discussion builds.

    I didn't think the $50 play store credit worked for accessories, just app store. Good to know. It appears everyone is out of stock on C to A. I didn't want to buy any before the device came out in fear of wasting money.

    Oh and the Rapid Charging is hella fast. I was at 13% a little while ago, I'm at over 50% now.

    So after reading about how some Type C cables aren't USB compliant I'm nervous. Most of the reputable places, oneplusone, monoprice, etc are sold out without any update on when they will be back in stock. I'm trying to figure out how I'll charge while in the car. This type a to type c that came with the phone is just too short for any realistic charging in my truck.

    Apparently those don't all follow type c spec & can be dangerous.

    I think you can trust a company like Belkin. A bit pricy but at least you know it complies.

    You can't spend that $50 on the store. I tried.
