If want quick and reasonable cost, 1.5m by Xiaomi at Mi store selling $14.90.

No hard and fast rule to say where to buy is the best, just more options

Go for USB-IF Certified cables guys, especially if you are using it to charge your usb-pd devices.

Charging Speeds
USB-C cables are mainly rated at 3A and 5A. For USB-C to USB-A cables, we only selected 3A level, because 3A is enough to charge most devices with USB-C ports. The 5A USB-C to USB-A cables have a relatively small application range unless your phones are from Huawei, OnePlus or OPPO. However, these brands have their exclusive fast charging protocols like Huwei’s SuperCharge, Oneplus’s Dash Charge, and OPPO’s VOOC Flash Charge, which are not compatible with some common fast charging protocols. That is to say, USB-C to USB-A cables should not only support 5A but also support their proprietary protocols, which leads to the narrow applicability of 5A USB-C to USB-A cables.

As for USB-C to USB-C cables, 3A is enough to fully power up all existing PD-enabled mobile devices and some low-power-consumption laptops. If you need to juice your high-powered laptop (like a MacBook Pro 15”), then a 5A cable will meet your requirement. And only 5A USB-C to USB-C cables can hit 100W power delivery level.

USB-C to Lightning cables can only charge Apple devices equipped with Lightning ports. Thus, we will be A-OK with them, as long as they support 2.4A.

Based on the mainstream USB standards, USB-C cables can be classified into three versions: USB 2.0, USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) and USB 3.1 Gen 2. If say, a USB-C cable you need is mainly used for charging devices, then USB 2.0 is enough, because this kind of cable is relatively inexpensive, and most smartphones on the market conform to the USB 2.0 standard.

USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) is a relatively common rapid transfer standard. On the market, many laptops, smartphones, and mobile hard drives support USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1). So the USB 3.0 USB-C cables can definitely meet your daily data-transfer needs.

USB-C cables that implement USB 3.1 Gen 2 will be a great choice for people who have high requirements on data-transfer rates. With the increasing development of USB, more and more laptops, SSD, displays and other devices on the market support USB 3.1 Gen 2. However, USB 3.1 Gen 2 merely fulfills by USB-C ports, so only USB-C cables are capable of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.

how easy it is to destroy your device with a non compliant usb-c cable.

When buying usb-c to usb-c cables from Aliexpress, please chat with the seller and ask for USB-IF Product TID number before purchase.

Many sellers claimed their products are USB-IF compliant, but when asked about the product TID number, they can't provide, which means the cables are not USB-IF compliant.

It's really important to buy proper proper certified cables, or your device may be fried if you aren't careful.
