You can use the above website to calculate the amount of voltage drop you'll get for a given load / distance / voltage. A stranded 18AWG cable can safely run up to about 5 amps through it, but by 75' you'd only be receiving 60% of the voltage you put in. To convert watts to amps, divide the watts by the voltage of the device and you'll get the current. (18W @ 12V is 18W/12V = 1.5A.

18 gauge is pretty thin, like really thin. It's only usable for very low wattage and short length. I wouldn't use anything smaller than 16 myself.

Before anyone tries to compare this to the amazon deal posted yesterday, this is stranded and the amazon deal is solid core hence the price diff. Both great deals

Just in time while my trenches are still dug!

Any deals on longer wires? I'm not sure if 75 feet would be long enough for me and I would love to not splice it together just to add another 25 feet or so :/

Do you need to dig trench to bury the wire ?

A Walmart near me was blowing out all their Westinghouse outdoor lighting stuff a few weeks ago. All they had was several spools of this kind of wire and a few transformers. Each piece was going for $3 or $4 bucks. I didn't really "need" any of it but it was too good a deal to pass up so I grabbed what little was there (maybe 4 spools and 3 different transformers).

I would have posted it but it was clearly an extreme YMMV. Even looked in another Walmart and it wasn't the same markdown but there must be something going on with Westinghouse outdoor lighting products so deals are out there I guess.

Ugh I would be laughing if you had a 300ft run of this cause it wouldnt work well. 18guage is for small runs.

I used 12guage. This guy knows what he is saying....Longer runs require lower guage

I bought this for $17 a month ago. I wired a solenoid valve to a zwave module.

thought this was an Apple LightNing cable. Would've have made sense for a 75' one.

how do you flag the original post? It's Lighting not Lightning. You used to be able to mod alert posts.
