So in looking through a number of posts, and many forums, it looks like I will standardise with XT-30 connectors as they are small, easily manage 30 amps and can spike 40+
As for wire, I’ll go for the PTFE (Teflon) coated wire as it seems the most durable coating. Silicon is more flexible however the slightest nick in it where it bends causes it to tear open.
Silver plated copper seems the way to go as far as the wire is concerned
So the final question is what gauge do you recommend? The smaller the number (thicker the wire) will always have less resistance and take more current however it becomes harder to run due to how much it will (not) bend and how much room it takes.
What gauge wire do you recommend?? (taking all of the above into account)
14 AWG - Overkill, too thick to run through gearbox. Beyond recommended size for XT-30 connectors
16 AWG - ???
18 AWG - ???
20 AWG - Too thin, resistance too high, might melt a bit
Love to know your thoughts and recommendations to help everyone
