# 12 gauge wire chart

• ### What is 12 gauge wire?

• 12 gauge wire is one of the most useful AWG wires. You can find it pretty much in every home, and in most cars. It鈥檚 sometimes referred to as the 2 millimeter wire because the diameter of a 12 gauge wire is 2.053 mm; if you round that up, it鈥檚 about 2 mm. If you express the cross-section of a 12 gauge wire in mm2, you get 3.31 mm2.

• ### How many gauges of wire are there?

• According to the American Wire Gauge (AWG) method, the highest Gauge of a wire is Nr. 36 AWG, and the smallest Gauge is Nr. 0000. The diameters of these two are 0.005 inches and 0.46 inches, respectively. There are 40 gauges between these largest and smallest sizes, or you can say 39 steps.

• ### What is 1 gauge copper wire?

• 1 gauge wire is the first 鈥榥on-negative or 0鈥?wire gauge. 1 gauge wire diameter is 7.348 mm and it has a 42.4 mm2 (1 AWG to mm2) cross-section or area. Given the 42.4 mm2 thickness, the 1 AWG copper wire has a current-carrying ampacity of 130 amps at 75C.

• ### What is the diameter of 14 gauge wire?

• In mm, the diameter of the 14 gauge wire is 1.628 mm. It is one of the mid-range AWG wires as far as the thickness is concerned. In mm2, the cross-section of the 14 gauge wire is 2.08 mm2.
