Wire by Size

24 AWG (0.25mm²)

For when size & weight are at a premium. Our 24 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is great for signal and very low current applications.

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 4A
Applications*: Signals / Sensors

22 AWG (0.35mm²)

Our most common general purpose hookup wire. Our 22 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire offers a great compromise between lightweight and strength, making it great for common signals and general low current power applications. 

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 5A
Applications*: Signals / Sensors, Low Current Power

20 AWG (0.5mm²)

A great general purpose power conductor. Our 20 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is great for general purpose power applications, capable of up to 8A current in even the harshest environments, all with an overall diameter of only 1.3mm

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 6A
Applications*: General purpose power supply (DBW, solenoids etc.)

18 AWG (0.75mm²)

Best choice for medium power applications. Our 18 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is perfectly suited to medium power devices such as wipers, lights etc. 

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 9A
Applications*: Medium power supply (wipers, headlights, low pressure pumps, blowers etc.)

16 AWG (1.5mm²)

Higher current supply without the bulk of standard automotive wire. Our 16 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is great for those high powered devices or where you want a little extra in reserve. 

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 12A
Applications*: Higher power supply (low flow pressure pumps, starter solenoids, fans etc.)

14 AWG (2.5mm²)

High current supply while still less than 2.5mm diameter. Our 14 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is great for those high draw situations such as fuel pumps, water pumps etc. 

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 18A
Applications*: High power devices (high flow pressure pumps, heavy duty fans etc.)

12 AWG (4mm²)

For those power hungry devices. Our 12 AWG M22759/32 Mil-Spec wire is great for supplying very high power devices such as compressors. 

Approx Max Current (@ 100°C): 24A
Applications*: Very high power supply (shift compressors, heated screens etc.)


*General recommendations only, always confirm the actual current draw of your devices before selecting wire sizes.
