    Unhappy LG V20 and USB-C cables

    I just got an LG V20 (H918) that I'm using on the T-Mobile network. I get a box of Anker USB C-to-A cables to use with the phone. BUT they do not fit the phone properly -- they don't engage fully, and they tend to fall out. The USB C cable provided by LG works fine.

    What's going on here? I always thought that Anker provided good-quality cables.

    Can anyone recommend another brand of cables that works well with this phone?

    Thanks!

    Follow Benson Leung on Google Plus. I can't post a link... He's a Google engineer who got frustrated with online sales of cheap USB-C cables online so he's tested a bunch of them and posted results on Google Plus. He's also posted reviews on Amazon as well but they're not all in one place. Poorly made cables can damage your equipment.

    Thanks, @Charcaroth. Interesting information!

    I should have posted earlier. I ordered more C cables from another approved brand -- they didn't seem to fit, either -- I pushed a little harder. I was lucky. It seems the C connector on the phone was new and stiff. Now the Anker cables fit just fine.

    These ones work just fine for me. If anything, they're a bit tight. They definitely won't fall out.
