2G welding cable, limber and small diameter helps with instillation

x2. And usually a better quality cable, more expensive.

In reply to # 3660615 by V8MGBV8 6 gauge is 6 gauge. More strands, more flexible.

Does it include the cross sectional area in mm^2? UK and european industries haven't used wire gauge as a cable sizing for over 40 years so it makes comparison difficuly without it. Also you need to look at the insulation type, harness bundling and mounting method since these also affect the current rating of the cable.
