Help find acceptable cable joint amperage

by Araneus on Fri Feb 22, 2019 6:11 pm

Hello everyone!

Does anybody knows if this cable https://www.adafruit.com/product/743 can tolerate 18V 4.5A?
I didn't find any info in product description.

P.S. Sorry if posted in wrong forum branch.

Thank you!

We don't have any specs for that one, but most 2.1mm barrel jacks are rated for a maximum of 5A @ 24V.

Thanks, but it is about jacks. What about the cable (wires) itself?
Thank you.

The wiring is 22-gauge, which is good up to about 2.5A.
