Will 18 gauge wire work for a dualmod?

I wasn’t sure what gauge to get so I went with something that looked bigger than what I needed and sure enough one of the guides I just looked at said to use 24 gauge wire. Will I be okay using 18 gauge?

18 gauge is a thicker wire than 24 gauge just to be clear.

i think we have to look at the fundamentals here, can you handle the presure with 120% conviction? if not, i suggest you look into other research areas, because she will wear your out, livin la vita loca.

its fine.
its just thicker and a bit harder to manage, but not that bad.

as long as its stranded.

ya, but can you consume the right amount of cheerios for said kung fu training?

Partly depends on how you’re dual modding. For quick disconnects and screw terminals it shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re padhacking it could be more of a pain.

Thicker wire is harder to work with until you’re used to it - since it is thicker, it carries a lot more force when tugged on and you are more likely to completely break solder points if you aren’t careful. It also gives you a lot less breathing room when you have a lot of wires that need to be soldered to a lot of closely bundled solder points (like on a TE)

If you’re experienced at soldering, or using one of the dual mod methods that requires very little of it, then you should be fine. If not…
