    Howdy, title says it all… What would make me choose one type of wire vs the other?

    Greetings Chazz,

    There are some differences, but the main factor will probably be how much the wire will need to be moved. Stranded is more flexible, so if your application is calling for a situation where your wire will not be stationary, stranded is pretty much always the way to go. I think in most cases stranded would be fine, though do keep in mind that stranded wire tends to be a bit more expensive and is going to be a larger-sized wire than solid.
