Wire Gauge Question (Mr16 Led Lights)

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know of a good website that lists wire gauge recommendations for 12v runs.

I am using the MR16 LED lights purchased from member Wirekat. Each MR16 uses .167 amps. I will be putting 10 lights on each wire from the source. The distance from the source to the lights could be as much as 50 feet. So, I will be putting about 2 amps through that distance. What is the smallest wire gauge I can use safely?

Thanks so much.
