The cables I use are no longer in stock but very similar to this cable which also provides a "mag safe" type connection to prevent damage if the cable is accidentally pulled.

Thank you for your response. Apple is always warning about using non-Apple accessories, but I gather you haven't had any problem?

No I haven't had a problem using various third party cables for charging and for connecting external drives. The only cable that I don't actually use is the one supplied by Apple! Often I need a cable that's only about 6" long to connect to an external SSD drive.
