Customer Comments

  • Please include details for this and all of your wire. Details such as is the wire copper, aluminum, silver, silver coated copper. Solid or stranded and the number of strands. Details of insulation such as Teflon,Kynar, max voltage, temperature rating, insulation thickness. With this information we can select the correct wire for the application at hand. Thanks

    • I would like to know the ampacity in particular. My Pocket Ref and all of the tables/calculators I can find online either don’t cover any wire thinner than 14 AWG, don’t cover aluminium wire, or list only resistivities, not ampacities.

      Edit: This wire is actually tinned copper, not aluminium. I didn’t see any copper when cutting it, but leaving some flux on it for two weeks exposed a little bit of copper (and the flux turned green).

      Therefore, a single wire should be OK for up to 4.5 A, and each wire in a bundle up to 2.5 A, according to MIL-STD-975.

    • Come on sparkfun, give us the wire’s datasheet. If one does not exist, make something up. I need to know what temp the insulation is going to burn up at! It would suck if upon soldering, the insulation burned of from the iron’s heat.

  • Yeah, this isn’t very helpful. From the photos I can’t even tell if this wire is coated with plastic or something else or if it’s bare wire which happens to be red. How flexible is it? The description doesn’t tell me anything either except that it’s flexible and 25'.

  • Someone posted the full-size product photo as the thumbnail?
