This USB 2.0 Type-C cable is perfect for use with your Raspberry Pi 4 and other USB Type C boards. USB Type-C Connectors and Cable Assemblies offer greater PCB savings while enabling high-frequency mating in data, consumer, and other I/O applications.
This cable uses the Type-C form-factor but only connects pins for USB 2.0 specification. It supports a maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s) and a max current of 1.5A (with data transfer) and up to 5A if used for power/charging only.
Based on 1 ratings:
Handles the current load for charging a recent iPad quite well and connectors and cable don't show noticeable warming. I don't have any benchmark data on data transfer, but it works fine.

I don't want to come across as an obnoxious pedant, but...the specs for this cable look to be somewhat off.
According to the data sheet, it only has the USB 2.0 pins wired, so it doesn't support 10Gbps, only 480 Mbps.
It's not electronically marked, so it doesn't support 100W / 5A, only 60W / 3A.
USB C charging is quite a lot more than 64% faster than MicroUSB charging. Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0's maximum power is 36W, 12V @ 3A, which is about 1/3 of USB C. Very few devices support that and it's non-standard, so on average USB C is a lot more than 3x faster.
Also, USB C is ridiculously complex and convoluted and you should assume that anybody talking about it is seriously confused / misunderstanding some significant part of the standard; this often includes the people who are building devices that use it and definitely includes me.
No need to apologize for being pedantic as you're absolutely right here. This is a USB 2.0 spec'd cable in the Type-C form factor intended mostly for charging/powering devices with a USB Type-C connector. We've updated the description to reflect that so other customers are not confused. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
