Passable Tape – Electrical PVC Insulation Adhesive Tapes (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
It's electrical tape. The vinyl is an insulator, so you can apply it over exposed wires to prevent shorts. Each roll is individually wrapped, so dirt will stay out until you're ready to use it.
Cons:
The width of the strip is slightly narrower than standard rolls, so you'll end up doing more turns to wrap a length of wire. The adhesive isn't very good on the ones I received. The glue barely holds on to surfaces, but that's the nature of vinyl tape.
Other:
Cost is acceptable for it being shipped to your door. I bought a pack just to have around without me needing to go out of my way to the hardware store. I ended up using some today, with limited success.
Bottomline:
A little bit expensive for the amount of tape you get. Not the best, but it'll work fine in a pinch.
