USB Type C

Most of you won't care about this, but ever since I upgraded my iPhone I've been itching to add USB Type C to my dash. The problem is nobody makes anything close to what I wanted. I even went as far as importing a bunch of stuff from AliExpress and tried (twice) to build my own.
And today's good news, for just $17 you can now add USB C thanks to Amazon

This beauty has everything except an on/off switch, and that I can add

Sorry but I don't think I get this. The usb C end goes to the phone and the cable end which is a usb A goes to the standard dash 12v plug (usb A). You would need a cable that has usb c on both ends?? Is that right?

*edit so I guess thats an iPhone thing because they use lightning to usb c

Type C to type C is a thing? Why? It still has a standard USB in it. I do believe that a phone should have type C instead of micro USB, but who cares if the vehicle side is the larger style?

USB C is not standard USB. It's capable of pushing way more voltage (and way more data). In this case, it allows my phone to charge faster and provides enough current to charge may MacBook.

Type C connectors are a part of the USB standards, it just isn't as common yet.
I think this is a great connector since it takes less space than the Type A and does not have issues with orientation.
It also seems more durable than the micro-B connectors.

But it's only a temporary condition.

That depends in large part upon the device AND USB-C cable type, Mason; any USB-C cable is gonna be able to carry a minimum of 3 A but they can also run high-power 5 A current for ,say, displays. Some of the recent , chip- equipped (SuperSpeed), shielded cables can USB-C cables support USB 3.1 gen. 2 which is capable of upto 10 Gbit/s data however, there are still craploads of "USB-C" cables which are only running USB 2.0 spec xfer rates of 480mbps ...

So, if you're using a fast charge capable device with an approved cable that supports it , you'll likely see it being able to 'charging rapidly' offa this little 3.0A port ...
