  • Should I strip my lowgrade cables?

    You should strip your lowgrade cables if you have the appropriate tools to do so.

    The copper content inside these cables is primarily what determines their value so it’s a good idea to strip the outer armour to extract this scrap metal.

    However, this process can be messy and time consuming. If you don’t strip your lowgrade cables with professional tools, you could damage the copper content inside and diminish your cables’ scrap value.
