Anker publishes the data rate for these cables, but I did not pay attention. These cables are great for charging but they are very SLOW for data transfers. If you connect an external SSD with a USB-C Gen 3.2 port that supports up to 1,000 MB/s transfer rate to a current MacBook with a Thunderbolt port (also USB-C Gen 3.2) then you will achieve around 30-60 MB/sec transfer rate. The cable is GREAT for charging you devices, but it is not designed for max data transfer. If the external SSD has its own USB-C to USB-C cable that is Gen 3.2 rated, then you will achieve much higher rates. So Anker is clear on expectations, I just didn't pay attention.
