  • How much current can a 12AWG wire handle?

  • How much current can 12AWG wire handle? About 4 long piece of 12AWG wire from PSU to charger. Charger will be pulling ~840W (35A). Is the 12AWG wire safe? (This may be a really stupid question since the cables on my iCharger are 12AWG wire too.. – but one cannot be too safe ) Thx! About 4 long piece of 12AWG wire from PSU to charger.
