Re: Correct wire sizing

Alexei asked:

> Is this 100% copper wire you're talking about?? 

Yes.  In general, it takes the next larger size of aluminum
wire to get the same current capacity (similar loss) as copper

Has anyone ever seen non-copper wire in an automobile?  I should
think that it would be inconvenient to use due to it being larger
or stiffer or whatever.
