I need an adaptor for the usb c port on my computer for connecting a device. I found two different usb adaptors, both are from the same brand called Vention, the cheaper one costs $3 and the more expensive one costs $6. Both are 3A and both have a 10nf capacitor and 5.1K pull-down resistor and both are 3.0 5Gbps, the only difference I can find is that the cheaper one has a PVC shell and the more expensive one has a aluminum alloy shell.

The make model of the cheaper adaptor is Vention CDUB0 and here is the link it: https://www.miniinthebox.com/en/p/vention-cdub0-usb-3-0-usb-c-to-usb-3-0-male-female_p8790543.html
The make and model of the more expensive adaptor is Vention CDQ and here is the link to it: https://ventioncable.com/product/usb-c-male-to-usb-3-0-female-otg-adapter-gray-aluminum-alloy-type/
Can you help me find out which one is better and is it worth paying twice the amount of money for the more expensive one?

They are essentially one and the same. The only reason for the higher price tag is that one looks and feels premium while the other isn't. You're good with either of them.
Thank you very much for your answer, I thought the pricier one was more expensive because of it was made out of aluminum instead of PVC for better heat dissipation and better performance.
