is 1/0 the same as 0 gauge

Best answer


The reason its called 1/0 instead of 0 is becauseits just a single 0 gauge wire. Meaning that its just 0 gauge. Now if its 2/0 gauge wire,it is also 00 gauge wire. See the resemblance? 1/0 has one 0,where 2/0 has 2 0’s. Thats what it means but its still the same thing either way.
