• 55 amps: 4-gauge wire: 70 amps: 3-gauge wire: 85 amps: 2-gauge wire: 95 amps: These ratings are for standard copper NM sheathed cable, but there are instances where these amperage ratings vary. For example, there is aluminum wiring in some homes, and aluminum wires have their own ampacity-carrying capacity. Aluminum wiring was once widely used …

• ### What is the difference between 6 gauge and 3 gauge wire?

• For the 00, 000, 0000 etc. gauges you use -1, -2, -3, which makes more sense mathematically than double nought. This means that in American wire gage every 6 gauge decrease gives a doubling of the wire diameter, and every 3 gauge decrease doubles the wire cross sectional area. Similar to dB in signal and power levels.
