    I tend to go with physics, but that is a preference. Both work, which is what is important.

    The reason I prefer to go with physics is later on, when the really advanced concepts come along, I have the model firmly in my head.

    Use whichever one you feel the most comfortable with. As long
    as you are consistent and don't change your definition halfway
    through a calculation, it doesn't matter which choice you use
    because either way, you will obtain the right answer.

    Personally, as a physicist, I am used to the conventional current
    (positive current is the direction in which a positively charged
    object moves) so I use that.
