Wire Ratings

The best wire will be the most pure metal.  It will be made of copper and it will be solid.  It will be well insulated.  It will operate at a low temperature.  The larger the wire is the better it is because it will have less resistance. 

With that said, it is important to note that due to economic factors and field factors, the best wire to use is often not “the best”.  Wire is best when it fits our budget and will accomplish the job.
