I do random electrical work, and a lot of electrical and mechanical work with cars and motorcycles, stereo installs, whatever comes up, etc. I haven't used cheap electrical tape for at least 12 years since I first found how much better the higher quality tapes are.

I now only use scotch 33+ tape, or the Scotch 88 if I need a thicker tape (I usually use the 88 on my motorcycle and auto work since it's thicker and more protective against both moisture and heat/cold.)

When wrapped correctly I've never had it come off, it's simply excellent.

This is the best quality tape for all temperature ranges. It is thick and can almost create a waterproof seal when used in boat and automotive applications. It simply is not worth the aggravation to have cheap Chinese tape crack and come apart in the cold or slide apart and get gooey in the heat. Use good quality Made in USA tape one time, and it will cure you forever from trying to save 2 cents per foot with cheap tape.

This is a great product, and it's holding up in day to day heat. I've used it for some automotive fixes like the base of the windshield, rubber sticking out of the fender well, door sill area, etc... I have a black car so it matches very well. I also used to wrap the base of my water hose (where the hose connects to the faucet) outside because it was leaking water. It's nice to know that this can withstand higher 220 farenheit temperatures vs. the other black vinyl electrical tape I previously bought, which helps against the adhesive getting gooey, so I've heard. This is also very easy to use (can apply several times if you're trying to get a perfect fit, and can push out air bubbles very easily). It blends in well cosmetically for visible repairs.

A long time ago I made the mistake of buying one of those colored packs of vinyl tape from HD. Fast forward about 10 years and I'm still trying to find non-electrical applications to waste those dumb rolls on.

For any electrical work, I pretty much only use Scotch Super tape. It sticks and stretches about 5x better than the cheap stuff I have. This means you apply it once and forget it. With the cheap stuff, with enough heat cycles (engine bay) or enough time it may come undone. The cheap stuff also doesn't stretch well, which is really needed when you're wrapping oddly shaped wire masses or soldered joints.

33+ is good for general purpose, and 88 is good for applications where you need thicker coverage.

Do it right the first time get the good stuff! It's not worth saving a buck or two for the cheap stuff. I bought 10 rolls of Scotch Super so I'll always have a roll handy somewhere.

I'm a ham radio operator and waterproof connections are very important to getting the signal out. Water seepage means replacement of expensive coax. This tape is the best there is. It is a top choice for hams.

Great tape, very sticky, nice plastic storage container to keep it clean. Yeah sure you can get 10 rolls at harborchinesecrap for a few bucks, but I've used that stuff too and it's worthless. There is a lot of crap electrical tape on the market today, but this is quality stuff. Spend extra for tape that sticks, but this.

I got this because I needed something to hold up in outside weather conditions for some electrical wire connections for some things I am connecting outside the house. This tape works well holding up to the heat and rain that it is exposed to daily. It is suppose to handle temperatures up to 221 degrees and hopefully it won't get tested to that degree outside. This is very easy to use and easy to apply and reapply. So far, no moisture and protects my wiring very well. I got this for around 4 dollars.

I love that it comes with a container. Keeps the pet hair (and anything else) from sticking when I set this down in the case, rather than the table or floor. Works great and looks nice. I used it to patch up a minor tear in a third party charging cable for a Chromebook. Given the materials and their restrictions listed, I have zero complaints.
