Question Can Oxygen Free Speaker cable be used for charger input extension? - 11.19.2018, 12:51 AM

https://www.bunnings.com.au/cable-sp...-0cl1_p4430113

Anyone know if this stuff which looks about 16 gauge can be used to extend the length of my current Turnigy Reactor 250W 10Amp input cable???

The input cable they supply with the charger is really short, so wanting to extend so that I can place the charger itself and para board/lipos on the drive way while I charge them up, instead everything sitting in the engine bay of my vehicle.

Thanks in advance.

I would not do that, Maybe if you dubble it up, so two to three lengths per pole.
Personally I would use 10 gauge or bigger.
Which awg is on the charger?

Ok, but longer cables equal more losses.
I would double the wire up to try, but keep an eye on the temps!
