  • What AWG for battery cables?

    Save me a trip under the shrink wrap and tell me what size wire is on your batteries. Usually it is printed on the cable. Thanks

    I wouldn't go for anything smaller than 2/0. get motor control or locomotive wire that bends easier, most motor repair shops should be able to sell it to you off the spool, much cheaper than retail and better jacket insulation as well, which you won't burn the wire up, but it resists abrasion and cuts better than cheapo battery cable

      I actually went to 1/0 which is what I think the boat was made with best I could measure. Bought the right marine wire which is tinned.
