Deal on USB-C to USB-C quality PD charging cables?

All, USB-C to USB-C PD charging cables appear to be not-so-common on Amazon. I had a link for a descent buy on a multi-pack by RavPower, but can't find. I need at least 2, preferable 1, 2 or 3-ft charging cables for my Pixel 2 and Chromebook. Thanks much!

The standard and marketplace is truly a mess to even well informed consumers. I have found this helpful especially the stuff at the top. https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePi...c_charger/

Thanks LiquidRetro. Gotta love Reddit ! Hard to find C to C, less than $20 a cable, and I don't need the 6' length that Amazon appears to want me to have.

Maybe the Powerline II 3ft for $20 will have to do, with lifetime warranty. Hope Anker is around for at least my lifetime lol.

Is there such a thing as a "PD" cable? I thought usb-c on both ends will do PD rapid charging as long as both the charger and device supports it.

I think thats true. Supposedly there's always the rumer that if the cable is cheap quality, it can fry because the device and charger don't 'know' what's in between the two. It is unfortunate we don't seem to have quality control and standards for cables.
