Hi Guys,

    Can recommend me a good brand of USB-A to USB-C cable for use on Pocket 2. I find the cable included is a bit short. I bought a Philips USB-A to USB-C 3.0 but it doesn't charge the pocket 2. I'm using an iphone charger. Using the included pocket 2 cable I was able to charge using this same charger. I'm gonna return the cable tomorrow to see if it's broken (I have no other device to test this cable with ).

Thanks in advance.

I'm using any cable that comes to hand from the jumble on my desk.  I suspect the one you have is defective - nothing special should be required.

Just an update. Seems the problem was the combination of the cable and the iPhone charger. If I change the charger the cable will work. It's very weird. Anyway, I have changed to a diff manufacturer's cable and it now works with the iPhone charger.

I didn't find any mention of any fast charging in OP2. 5V/2A is indicated everywhere.
Therefore, the best cable, the shorter the better, preferably a well-known manufacturer.
The power supply itself is best to support 5V/2.1 A and also be a well-known manufacturer.
Note that there are 5V/1A and 5V/2A power sources, they will charge worse, 100 mA will go to losses in the connectors and the cable itself, and various adapters will only make the charge current loss stronger!
