Usb 'Y' cable to power 2 devices

Hi, I'm looking for a 4meter usb 2.0 to usb-c cable that can power 2 led lights,
I'm struggling to find the length, does anyone know of one ?
Or a shorter one with a usb male to female extension that will power the shorter splitter cable?

    "4m usb extension" brings several results. Then put a cheap hub on the end

    Don't fully understand the requirement but casual observation that may tick a box is a credible Amazon marketplace shifter will shove a 4m USB-A 2.0 extension through your letterbox for a minimal £3.29 which is actually cheaper than its 3m offering…VX/

    Other observation would be that the total power consumption of the "2 led lights" is not stated,
    considering a USB 2.0 port is rated to total power of 2.5 Watts.
    Having noted that limitation, the quoted USB 2.0 extension cable is rated 24AWG so will (should) tolerate 2A at USB 2.0 5volts (total 10Watts) before being compromised and/or triggering smoke alarms.
