# 18 gauge wire amp limit

3 and 15 amps

• ### How many amps can 18 gauge wire handle?

• 18 AWG wire can handle 14 amps. It has a rated ampacity of 14A at 75C. That makes it very useful for a number of applications, including as: 18 gauge battery wire (at 12V, it can handle 14 amps). 18 gauge automotive wire.

• ### How many amps can a 1 AWG wire handle?

• Given the 42.4 mm2 thickness, the 1 AWG copper wire has a current-carrying ampacity of 130 amps at 75C. This gives us a pretty good indication of how many amps can a 1 AWG gauge wire handle. With 130 amps capacity, 1 gauge wire can serve as a battery cable, welding cable, or any other power cable that requires a good 100 amps of electric current.

• ### What is the ampacity of a 19 gauge wire?

• As per usual with odd AWG wires between 10 and 20, the 19 gauge wire is used for its tensile strength and not as an electrical wire. This is also the first AWG wire with below 1 mm diameter; 0.912 mm, to be exact. The cross-section of a 19 gauge wire is 0.653 mm2 and there is no rated ampacity numbers.

• ### What is the cross section of an 18 gauge wire?

• Its diameter is 1.024 mm; hence the 18 gauge wire is also known as the 1mm wire. Based on the diameter, we can deduce that the cross-section of 18 gauge wire in mm2 is 0.823 mm2. How many amps can an 18 gauge wire handle? 18 AWG wire can handle 14 amps. It has a rated ampacity of 14A at 75C.
