Re: Power cable conductor gage (AWG) of
Stone, Jack G
Remember current flows through the wire – so wire that has a lot of small strands will have a lower IR drop.
So not all 14AWG has the same current handling capability – they can differ by quite a bit.
Vendors usually have online calculators for their products.
Also important is the insulation rating

Knowing the wire gauge will enable the minimum voltage drop at a certain current to be calculated but it will not take the extra resistance of any poor connections into account. It's always best to do an end to end test under load.
