I came across a design of a battery pack. As you see on the photo, the red wire is positive and black is negative.
The red wire lays across the top of the battery pack and comes to the connector.
One of my classmates said to me that, there is more risk of moving the red wire across the top of the battery pack, and I should move the connector to the left side and draw the Black wire across the top of the battery pack. So this way the risk of the short circuit will be less.
But does it really matter which wire goes across the top of the battery pack as both wires carry a total voltage?
If it is the red or black wire, both wires carry a total voltage of the battery pack. I think it does not matter which wires go across the battery pack. I want to get your opinions regarding this question.

I redrew the battery from the comments and put the photo here.
