8AWG = 6.5MM = 200 amps, 10AWG = 5.5MM = 140 amps, 12AWG = 4.5MM = 90 amps, 14AWG = 3.5MM = 60 amps, 16AWG = 3.0MM = 35 amps, 18AWG = 2.8MM = 20 amps, 20AWG = 2.0MM = 12 amps, 22AWG = 1.7MM = 10 amps, 24AWG = 1.6MM = 6 amp
Really great info! Just what I was about to google! Thanka a lot Hamed!
Great, thanks :)
AWG stands for "AMERICAN WIRE GAUGE" and the above information is completely wrong... For example 8AWG = 3.6mm diameter = 8.38mm²*. Just google AWG standards and you will see...
Is the copper tinned ie easier for soldering?
Hi Charles. No you will have to tin the wire yourself.
yes is high grade wire , and very easy to solder
I find the easiest way to tin the wire without oxidizing it is to fill a bullet connector with solder, solder the wire in, then desolder it
