I recently checked out some cables from Choetech of Amazon.
and to my surprise they preformed quite well and the C to A cable passes the test of compliance to the Type-C standard.
Great deal and much better than the cables and chargers that I got with my Nexus 6P( not sure why Google gives us a very short cable)
Either way I am happy with the cables and glad I was able to get them for review.

Thank you

So you're saying that this charger (AC adapter) does quick charge the 6p with a type C cable that is in spec? If it works as well as the adapter that came with the phone, I'm in!

Had opportunity to review Chloe tech USB a to c Cable. Packed well, built well and works as well if not better than Nexus Google cables. Galaxy charging original usb a to c on 2.1a charger vs Chloe tech. I highly recommend this quality charger. I would like to evaluate c to c next.

not sure why you think this, type c is bidirectional. this will charge your nexus, or you can charge the bank with a type c adapter
Read the description. Everything there says input and no mention of output. Check the device photo itself, the type c port is marked as "in". Look at the bottom of the device. Input 1 which is the type C port is indicated as 5V 3A. It doesn't say anything that it outputs 5V 3A. And the last photo even only says input and nothing about output. I really do hope I'm wrong as this seems like the smallest type C Charger available.

Yup, agree completely. Nothing visible to show to control the direction of the USB C interface. And with the way the pictures are labeled and described as only as an input. USB C is bidirectional but you need access to control the flow of the charging.

It has Quick Charge 2.0 output and USB C input

That's to say, in my opinion, it can quick charge your old Nexus 6 or Sumsung S6... if you want to charge your Nexus 6P, you need to use a USB-A to USB-C cable for output...but of course, the charge speed with AC cable would reach 2.4A maximum.

The description says it comes with a USB-A to Type C charging cable, so it's still a good option because it supports Quick Charge 2.0 devices like Nexus 6 and can charge your Nexus 6P with the AC cable.

That would be great, as I planned to buy a longer cable for my Nexus 6p as the one provided is too short.

I recently checked out some cables from Choetech of Amazon.
and to my surprise they preformed quite well and the C to A cable passes the test of compliance to the Type-C standard.

Back on topic with the OP...

Choetech sent me a 3 meter A-to-C cable to review. I loved it, and left this review on Amazon:
K. Eshed said:
This is a very sturdy, well built cable. I am using it with a Nexus 6P, which is only capable of USB 2.0 speeds, which this cable does deliver--even over such a long length. I confirmed that the cable does appear to be built to spec, reporting a 56KΩ pull-up resistor via adb and CheckR. No one should expect Nexus "Rapid Charging" from a to-spec A-to-C cable, and especially not from one that is nearly 10 feet long... That said, this cable works just fine for charging if you're not in a rush. It's perfect for a bedside charger where the nearest outlet is on the other side of the bed... When compared to the OEM A-to-C cable that came with my 6P using Ampere, I noticed about a 200mA drop in the charging capacity provided by this one--which again, is exactly what you should expect from a 3 meter (~10 foot) cable.

The quality of this cable is so good that I ordered a 2m and 0.5m C-to-C cable along with their Type-C charger linked in the OP. I will post here again with further reviews after I receive those...
