Why is a USB data cable?
- Laurence ILv 76 months agoFavorite Answer
a usb cable has 4 wires. 2 for power, 2 for data. some cables are used just for charging and only need 2 wires. to use data you must have one with all 4 wires otherwise its just a charging cable.

Unless you're imitating Drax, your question is incomplete or mistaken.

Not sure if you meant "what", but some USB cables are just for power, where the "data" pair of wires are sometimes missing. A USB data cable has the "data" pair and can be used for power and data. If you really did mean why, then it is a competing "serial" data cable, meaning it only needs two wires for data, where each version obtains a higher and higher data throughput. It has beat out other serial cable technology.
