Power Wire

Much of the wire out there is referred to as power wire.  This type of wiring is no different than other wiring.  It is still made of copper or aluminum and is stranded or solid.  People call it power wire because it is what brings the power to the appliance.  For example, a lot of speaker wire is called power wire because it brings power to the speakers.  However, the primary use of wiring is to bring power and that would mean that any electrical conducting wire can be called power wire.
