How to Make use of 96W Performance Better?
The current of 3A or less does not require special wires, and ordinary USB-C to USB-C wires can transmit 3A current. But when the current demand of the device or the output current of the charger exceeds 3A, such as Apple's 96W, if the ordinary 3A cable is used, the Apple's 96W can only output a maximum of 3A（about 60w）. To output all, you need 5A-Emarker cable.
The appearance of this special cable looks the same as a normal USB-C to USB-C data cable. The charger will provide more than 3A current after using the 5A E-Marker data cable.
