Having two sets of power lines is often done to improve power delivery. Inspect and/or probe continuity between the two Black & Red wires (power) are they shorted from the other side?

Without knowing which USB standard you are working off and the cables use I can’t tell you much more.

There are no black wires...


@agnawn uh mous - The silver (black) wires are the negative and ground.

You'll need to use a Continuity/Ohm meter to investigate what the devices wiring is. As ideally you don't want to mix the negative and grounds as even though they are similar one is filtered the other is not.


Probably should've mentioned type a to type c
