I strip wire pairs from colored ribbon cables. The best I have found yet. Why? They are attached to each other so when you pull off two wires you get two wires that stay attached until you seperate them at the ends to solder to your project.
Also, being they are colored, I strip off xx feet for the plane I am setting up. I prefer to use the red and brown wires and red is + and brown is - but any pair will work. You just establish the polarity you want the colors to be.
Also, if you don't have colored ribbon cable use the more common gray wires but mark one with a sharpie.
