    I found that a local electronics store sells this cable at a nice price, but they couldn't tell me if it had the 56 kOhms resistance included which seems to be the brick-safe kind.

    The cable in question is this one:

    Anyone has a clue?
    I want to get a cable to begin doing RCM stuff, and this is the most affordable right now at my city.

    I just read in the desc. for the item that it doesn't support data transfer.
    Welp, guess I'll go ahead and buy one for Pro Controllers from Gamestop then xD

    I have used this cable without issue:

    Bhobel USB-A to USB-C 5ft Charging Cord

    I've heard there needs to be a resistor in the cable for it to be safe. Any one know how to check for that? I do have a multi-meter. I have used this cable to launch RCM payloads just fine. So as far as I can tell this cable is a safe one. At least for what I'm using it for.

    I haven’t had much luck, previously, with these multi-cords. They either are good at charging or data transfer, but not both. Perhaps, it’s just my luck, but I’d stay away.

    So, maybe this one is good? It’s in the description to have a 56k ohm resistor.

    Yep that one's good :)
    It should be 56kOhms, so you are good!
