Wire awg for 12s?


#1

for a 12s system, with routed wires throughout a 38 inch deck, what awg wires should be used? i thought 10 awg, but on amazon, it said it could do 45 amps… any suggestions?


#2

12awg should be enough


#3

12awg Quality cable Would be fine,
if your not sure about the quality 10awg would be safer.


#4

If you use proper silicone wire (tinned copper) AFAIK 10AWG is up to 140A, 12AWG about 90A and 14AWG 55A. But the inner resistance is less with thicker cables so I would suggest 12AWG or if the cables are very long 10AWG. You can order from hobbyking, nice price.
