The Need To Know About USB Technology

We need to know the USB cable inside that little thick wire.

We can cut it and give it a go for just a curiosity and boom, there goes the four wires.

Common USB wires have four wires inside.

These wires have USB color code.

This USB color coding and wiring corresponds on what kind of electric circuit or data passing through it.
