Answer: 
The differences between the two are: size and allowable ampacities. While in comparison to the 12/2, 10/2 is larger and it can handle more amps. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess.

The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for running power around the shop This wire works great for power outlets around the shop. I have used about 400 ft of it and there were no problems... July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wet Location Rated/Great Product You can use this MC cable for outdoors you must purchase MC connectors that are rated for wet locations according to NEC code of Florida. April 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great stuff to work with... I use this in my house rather than Romex, overkill but I like working with it and that it is less subject to damage in exposed areas like the attic, crawl space and my classic bare stud garage. Price is relatively good compared to buying 12 awg wire spools and pulling. Buy the special cutting tool for the cladding if you don't have one, well worth it. December 29, 2012
