I tried a USB-C 3.1 TO USB-C 3.1 cable for powering MP6 last evening and got zero power. Not sure if anyone else has had this experience.
What battery? I have found a few batteries that take USB C, and all of them have powered the MixPre 6 without issue. It sounds like a bad cable.

FWIW, Here are 3 USB-C batteries I use:

That's very odd. Any properly-designed USB-C to USB-C cable should do the trick. What brand is your cable?

Who is the maker of the cable?

I've used Anker 3.1 to 3.1 with great success.

I can confirm that this angled usb-c works perfectly with my usbpre-3, giving the green power indicator with both of the usb-c batteries I own. There is no wrong way to plug in a usb-c connector, so it is right or left angle.
