Different Size Wires for Different Jobs

Depending on the electrical job at hand, you may need a higher or lower gauge wire. The thicker the electrical wire, the lower the gauge – and the more current it can carry without resistance. 14 or 16-gauge wire is good for most household wiring, while electronics projects usually use 20-22-gauge wire.

Insulated wire is covered in a coating to keep it shielded from weather, heat and other outside factors. It also insulates the wire against other wires, helping to prevent shorting out your connections.

Copper wire is commonly used in telecommunications, power transmission, electrical equipment and more. It is one of the most used types of wire and comes in various gauges.
