I love CF - someone asks about small wire to pull a couple of milliamps around unobtrusively and people get pedantic about "proper" and "what-ifs", and present hard lines about "minimum" without any perspective.
Like 16AWG is going to work any better than 20AWG when a bonehead wires a windlass
I bet some of you "minimum" people have never questioned the pigtail wire size on your fans, N2K power, and many other equipment
components on board. Or maybe you open these things up and solder on "properly sized" wires in their place?
