• ### How many amps can a 4 0 wire handle?

• Ampacity-wise, the 4/0 AWG gauge wire can handle the largest amount of current of any AWG gauge wire. At 75C, it has a rated ampacity of 230 amp (with 195 amps and 260 amps at 60C and 90C temperature, respectively).

• ### What is the ampacity of a 00 gauge wire?

• The ampacity at 75C is 175 amps, and the 00 AWG wire is custom used as a 150 amp wire size (despite the 1/0 gauge wire having 150 amp ampacity at the same temperature). In the cable itself, the 00 gauge wire has 2.74 turns per inch.

• ### What size wire do I need for 90 amps?

• 3 AWG wire has a rated ampacity of 100 amps. That is a perfect wire size for a 90 amp circuit. If you want to have an even safer circuit, you can use 2 AWG wire as the 90 amps wire size. Note: Do inform yourself about the specific characteristics of these wires before you buy one.
