[Life] Never buy a cheap USB cable or it may burn down your home

I bought a very cheap (200 NTD) micro USB cable with measuring feature few weeks ago. It can measure the voltage and the amp when charging but I broke it after I turn the switch to USB mode when charging the power bank. Yesterday when I try to charge a exhausted power bank which supports QC3.0, it starts to swell and heat up quickly. I immediately turn of the switch after I smelled a malodor of burning plastic skin. Luckily nothing was lost except the cable. I cut the cable and found that the metal cables are so thin ( smaller than AWG30) that may cause some problems when conducting large voltage and current. I think I’ll mever buy a cheap USB cable in the future…
