  • How many amps can this wire carry?

  • Don’t use these in a circuit where the wires must move around, I had a couple of problems with broken wires

  • I have a project outside my norm and need to push 5V DC @ 26A from the power supply. Any idea what the ampacity of this wire is or how to figure out the best wire to use?

    • http://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm This gives a good idea of how many amps you can push through different gauge wires

  • This might be regarded as a stupid question, but is the core of your hook-up wire pure copper or a copper-nickel alloy? I had ordered this a couple of years ago, and the color of the core was silvery, indicating it was probably either tinned or the latter.

  • What is the jacket thickness of this? I do like this wire but I would like to get it with a thinner jacket and I only have this wire for a reference.

    • I don’t know what thickness the jacket on this item is, but if you want thinner jacket, go with “wrap wire” or magnet wire. Very thin insulation on those items.

  • Does this wire fit in most PCB vias? Thanks.

    • Nope, you will need AWG26-30 for most typical open vias. This will fit in most typical “test point” holes and those made for .100" headers.

  • any other colors coming? how about bigger spools with more length? (not wider, just longer) for many projects?

    • SparkFun isn’t really a parts retailer (although they do sell a good selection of parts, tools, and supplies). If you’re getting serious and starting to want longer lengths and more colors, it might be time to make a purchase at a place specializing in that sort of things. I bought mine at Digikey, but you can probably get a good assortment of wire cheaper elsewhere.

  • This is stranded wire. FYI

  • Is your hookup wire tinned or bare copper?

    • It’s bare copper, Also it’s solid core. Solid core wire doesn’t need to be tinned, however stranded wire does.
