So my MacBook Pro is currently being serviced under AppleCare (hinge cover issues), but I actually took it into the Apple Store because it had shutdown on me and wouldn’t turn back on. Turns out the self-protection mechanism kicked in because of a dodgy USB-C cable from my Samsung Galaxy S8+. With the Genius we were able to construct a timeline proving this cable was the cause. So I need to replace it, but just getting one off of Amazon or from a store is what I did last time, and now I don’t trust doing it again.
Are there are any brands I can use safely? Note, this MBP is pre-USB-C, but the Galaxy is USB-C, hence why I need USB-C (from phone) to USB-A (to MBP/MacPro). Who do I trust?
