I think it's the opposite. CHAR don't store trailing termination char (2 bytes for SQL), varchar does.

I think I found the answer. With VARCHAR(MAX), you can't index the column and also you don't have length checks provided for you by default by database, that's why you should always use VARCHAR(n) as supposed to VARCHAR(MAX)

CHAR(n) when lenght same for all/most rows.
