To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a very flexible cable, which surprised me.
Then I stripped the wire and realized that this is copper coated super soft aluminum. Super thin coating of copper.
Even one time tightening of the wire under a screw (with a washer) is enough for the compressed wire to whiten noticeably.
As others have noticed, the wire is not very ductile, and breaks after a couple of bends.
I think it is not fit for the purpose advertised, as the wire is prone to fracturing while being installed, and once installed prone to corrosion at the contacts because the copper coating is thin and the aluminum very soft.
Great cable deal. This cable seems good quality. The insulation of the individual conductors (one colored red and one colored white) seems durable. The conductors are solid-core. The outer-insulation is white and seems durable. I intend to use this cable as RS485 control of PTZ cameras. The cable will be run through the attic. If it is run outside, it will be painted.
I purchased this wire to run in my garage for sensors - I had to run one line twice due to shorts / breaks in the line. I following the ceiling profile around corners, and wondering if the wire simply broke as it failed continuity test. I still need to run two more sensors, and considering other options.
