I quote Magnecor's web site (www.magnecor.com):

I bought these wires because I needed new ones, and these seem 
to be some of the best ones made. The 20V NA engine produces 
quite a bit of heat in its narrow confines, and these wires should 
be able to handle it. They also have very good RFI and EMI 
suppression which will help keep the computer from getting 
confused. Check out their web site. They give a pretty good 
explanation of the reason why there are many low resistance 
wires being advertised.
