    Now my splice cable i have some with red, black, green and white wire in it (i presume red and black is +ve and -ve) how about the rest of 2 wire ?

    Can i also use broken house USB cable and 'transform' it into a charging cable ?

    Please help me out.

    Get a working cable with the same connectors on the end. Use a multimeter to see which pin is connected to which pin. Then use the multimeter to determine which wire is connected to which pin on the splice cable you have. Then use the multimeter again to make sure you connect each wire to the correct connection on the other plug.
