This is the area to clarify hardware specification if there's anything unclear from the datasheet. If the specification is software related, please ask in the related software section.

I checked some out of spec USBA-C cables on my pc...

I know this may seem obvious to some, but myself and some others in this sub have been using out of spec cables in their computer as to not waste a cable. (USB shouldn't provide more than 0.5A anyway).

I was wondering if it was doing any of out of spec charging or if my computer was clever enough to not provide out of spec power.

I have 5 different USBA - C configurations and I got hold of a cheap V / A USB meter. It has a range of 3.5-7V and 0-3A. I'm not going to lie, it's not the most accurate setup BUT when using in spec USBC and micro usb cables it was approx 5v/0.5A (which is the max USB 2.0 can provide.
