No matter what platform your run, if you own a USB-C laptop, you need to buy this cheap $25 accessory. Why? Because it could save your laptop.
So, what is this accessory? It's a 20-pin USB-C magnetic breakaway connector that acts like the old MagSafe connector.
The connector is a standard USB-C type connector that is attached to a dongle using a magnet. The magnet is strong enough to keep the connector together but will allow the connector to separate if the cable is given a tug that is strong enough to take the laptop on a journey groundwards.
The connector is rated for 100W (20V/5A) power transfer, which is what I use if for, but it is also good for data and can support a throughput of 10Gbps, and can support 4K@30Hz video output.
Usage is simple -- plug the USB-C connector into the laptop, and connect your USB-C charge cable to the breakaway part of the assembly, and you are ready to go.
Given the price of high-end USB-C laptops, $25 is a small price to pay for a little insurance against dragging the laptop to the floor via the cable.
