Two inches is too wide.I use 1-inch Litz Wire(Battery Cable).Never had
It is true the 2-inch banding would have less inductance,but what a size
I base this statement on experience...not opinion.There is always a
practical limit to parameters.Try the 2-inch stuff,but for the trouble of
construction,I don't see the added benefit.
