Which is larger 12 gauge or 14 gauge wire?
The gauge of wire refers to the size in diameter and the cross section area of the wire. 12 Gauge is thicker than 14 Gauge. It is usually used to determine the maximum safe electric current carrying capacity in copper and aluminium cables by referring to charts.
What is the Maximum amps for 12 gauge wire?
The maximum current for circuits using 12 gauge wire is 20 amps, according to US electrical regulations. However, 12-gauge copper wire can withstand significantly larger currents. Lab experiments have shown that 30 amp circuits made from this size wire will not burn up.
