I fitting a diode as close as possible to a 5 volt solenoid.

My supplier carries a couple of different types.
Which ones do I use?
High speed Schotty or general purpose ones ??

I have a 1N5819 (1A 40v Hi speed Schotty) and a 1N4004 (1A 400v, general purpose diode ) in my spare parts box.

Thanks.

Use the 1N4004, no need for speed.
