Default What gauge wire to use for hooking up voltage reducer and 12 volt usb charger port?

All,

I am getting a voltage reducer for hooking up lights and also a 12 volt USB power port. To my knowledge, neither come with enough wire to do the install.

What gauge wire should I use for the VR and power port? Planning on using a 30 amp VR.

Match the supplied wire size or go one step larger.

Hey you are going to want to add a fuse box with a negative buss for the lights, and the usb charge port from the VR. You can do it with in line fuses for your accessories but you know the next mod will be a yellow strobe on the roof then a stereo of some sort, then maybe some led's under the cart. A "blue sea" fuse box with negative buss bar will let you add items as the modification bug sets in and cash alows.

Gorno speaks the truth on wire size. A stereo shop will have the best price on wire I have found and will have the size you need in stock and in a large range of colors. Most common sizes for what you are going to run will be 18g-10g. Depending on the amp load.

Also a hand full of switches will come in handy to control all the extra nifty neato stuff that will find its way onto the cart.
