Is the tag needed? If so, what is it's purpose?


Hmmm - we have three similar tags - , and

To my mind, electrics and electrical both describe tha main electrical system of the car - fuses, wiring etc, and one should probably be a synonym of the other.

Electronics to me describes things with chips in, such as computers, ecus etc, so is distinct.

    Agree with this, Electrics and electrical could perhaps be merged. – Roger Mellie Jul 5 '16 at 8:45

They seem very distinct to me. They are certainly related, but all point to possibly different resolutions and skill sets.

Electrical - Wiring
Electronics - Computers and sensors
Electrics - Vehicles powered by electric motors

  • Yeah, "electrics" should be got rid of. – I have no idea what I'm doing Jul 5 '16 at 10:15
