What gauge wire for fans?

Post by RJD » Mon Apr 18, 2016 4:17 pm

I am changing the fans on the bed and extruder, and need longer wires for the setup. What gauge wire is utilized for the fans? Thanks.

The fans draw on the order of 100ma or less. 24 ga wire is PLENTY large for that current.
Smaller wire will make soldering/wiring more difficult.
Existing wiring I believe is 22 ga, but could be 24.
