Time for a good oldfashioned cable shootout!
One of the legends on the DR Discord shipped two nice braided 100cm cables by Ugreen and Orico my way.
They're both rated for those new-fangled high current protocols, so let's see how they perform...

For those who don't want to watch, here are the slides at the end :

Bidirectional Type-C UPM : RuiDeng TC66C USB Type-C Power Monitor en

The good folks at RuiDeng sent me their latest UPM for a video. It's a follow-up to their TC64
(on which I also did a video/blogpost). This RuiDeng TC66C USB Type-C Power Monitor addresses the issues many of us had with the TC64; it adds bidirectional measuring capability as well as PD and other protocol triggering functions and output protocol analysis along with PC connectivity as standard (TC66) and optional Bluetooth connectivity (TC66C) for use with iOS/Android devices and an app.
All of that while remaining affordably priced imho. Perfect for those of us who have ditched USB-A and micro-usb entirely and want to measure the power usage or capacity of their Type-C devices...

BangGood sent me another UPM to take a look at.
This time they sent me a 100MHZ UT50N Dual Channel UPM.
It sports a 320 by 240 pixel colour TFT screen, knocking the UPM from the previous post for biggest display in my collection. It features dual micro-usb and Type-C inputs, and dual USB-A and Type-C outputs, hence the dual channel name.
It has a very nice graphing function that really takes advantage of the large screen as its party-piece.
Check out the video below if you'd like to know a little more about this UT50N Dual Channel UPM.
