OnePlus Will Sell Its USB Type-C Cable For Around $5

One of the novel features that the recently announced OnePlus 2 brings to the table is its Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C port. This has already been embraced by certain laptops, such as Apple's recent MacBook or Google's recent Chromebook Pixel, and it's sure to spread to more smartphones in the future.

The problem with any such recent interface is that it requires recent cables. When you buy a OnePlus 2 you'll obviously acquire the necessary data / charging cable in the box, but if for some reason you want just the cable, you'll be able to order that too.

OnePlus has revealed that it will start selling the Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C cable for around $5. This will happen three weeks or so after the OnePlus 2 launches on August 11. So towards the discontinue of August you'll be able to go to the Chinese company's web store and order one of its red cables - with a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C connector at one end, and the well known Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-A plug at the other end. This is what people call 'normal size' Universal Serial Bus (USB) so it will plug into anything with a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port. The neat thing about OnePlus' cable is that it will be reversible at both ends.

Apparently the $5 price for the cable is either at or below cost for OnePlus, but the company still wants to acquire as many Type-C cables out there as possible. And it certainly won't harm its image given that its logo is front and center on the cable. For comparison, OnePlus currently asks for $9.99 for the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) cable made for the One.
