For power delivery you need a cable rated for it. Cables can have the same USB specification but different power limits.

Typically to charge a Laptop you want a cable rated for 60W power delivery or higher. I would just go with 100W rated cable as the price is reasonable.

Also I’ve read 5A is the better choice too, do you agree with that? And also, these cables down too right?

Yes the one I linked was 100W / 20V / 5A
