I have more than one Mac Book Pro, and need to transfer large files between them.
Can I repurpose the USBC cable for power to transfer between Mac Books?
Is there a better/faster cable, or way to transfer files between MacBooks?

The charger included with the 2016 MacBook Pro is a standard USB Type C cable. It should achieve speeds of up to 10gbps. If you'd like speeds of up to 40gbps, I'd buy an official thunderbolt 3 cable from Apple. These should have the highest speeds.
NOTE: My bad, I looked into it and the cable is a standard USB C cable, not thunderbolt. Answer has been changed to reflect that.
