Since the structural load carrying capacity of these cables is distributed between the conductors and insulation/outer jacket, these low profile variants are considered to be very strong. This, combined with the use of molded plugs and connectors, results in a strong and highly durable product.
The work of coiling and uncoiling cables is much easier when the cables in question are flexible. Such cables are also easier to use in work areas where space is limited.
