    I want to buy a gift -- some USB type C charging cables for charging a tablet, which I know takes Type C . Everything I have seen on line is advertised for a specific list of products and obviously, I don't want to ask for the make & model. I was under the impression that type C was to do away with any uncertainty. Can I go wrong -- is there really any difference between the type C cables produced by different manufacturers?

    I don't own any USB C devices. My tablets and phone use microUSB to USB charging cables and I notice no difference in brands with those cables. (I own about 7 different ones. The ones that came with my Samsung devices were so short that I bought longer ones so the devices could sit comfortably on a table when I used the wall wart to charge.
