For use primarily in residential wiring, including branch circuits for outlets, switches, etc. May be installed in both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations. May be installed in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where these walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness. May be installed in locations with temperatures up to 90 DegreeC, but with the ampacity limited to that of 60 DegreeC conductors. Added Circuit: For use primarily in residential wiring for branch circuits supplying outlets located in bedrooms and other areas.
This is the way to go
I used this wire to run a 50 amp generator inlet box to my house load panel through a 50 amp breaker, which is protected through a generator interlock kit. It’s a short run, about 18 feet from the inlet box to the breaker. I cut and used the excess cable to make an extension cord to connect generator to the inlet box. I used ¾” pipe as conduit from the inlet box, along the wall to the top where the cable enters the house.It’s a thick and stiff wire and takes some patient and effort to run it through attic and especially making the connections at the load panel. To make the extension cord, I used a Camco 55255 50 AMP PowerGrip Replacement Plug g and a Reliance Controls Corporation LL550C 50-Amp CS6364 Generator Power Cord Connector for Generators Up to 12,500 Running Watts , which I bought here at Amazon. It would have been easier to use 6/3 SOOW wire, especially on the Camco 55255 50 AMP, because of its flexibility, but I didn’t want to throw the excess wire away as this cable is not cheap.Anyway, I’m getting ready for hurricane season here in South Florida and already have my generator hook up and ready to go just in case. This 6/3 wire is the way to go.
Used 10Ft to install a charging plug for my Tesla
The cable works! No problem pulling 32 amps charging my Tesla. It has less strands than the same 6AWG cables for sale at HomeDepot though.
Good wire, worked fine for my conduit install
This is perfect for my EV install. I read that people complained that it's too stiff. Well, YEAH, it's 6 ga wire, what did you expect?I put this through flexible conduit with almost no effort by first putting some grease into the conduit. As I was feeding it, I was straightening the wire with my hand and it was compliant. The number of strands per wire is 6 as you see in the picture. They're heavy and great. I think at 30A constant current this will remain nice and cool.The final install is the second picture I included. Ready for my EV!
Nice NM Cable
Very slippery and pretty easy to pull, but tough. I like that in a wire. Slippery and tough. Kind of like my ex.
Beware Not 25' ...23' 8"
Since I was being precise about the run I needed the full 25'.. usually vendors tend to err on the long side.. pretty disappointed that I will have to splice..also the external sheath was damaged.. still usable but disappointing...
If installing a tesla charger 240V outlet, this is it. I recommend bending wires to go around the back cylinder as much as possible because most boxes don't have a lot of clearance and the orange plastic one is too flimsy.
I only needed 25 ft or less and I found ...
I only needed 25 ft or less and I found it on Amazon. The quality was as intended to wire an electrical range.
great deal on 6g wire
the price is great and the product is worth the money. Can't say much more about wire, I installed it to run a 220 hot tub.
Got it to add a Nema 14-50 outlet for my Tesla. Installed fast - though the wires are crazy thick and hard to bend (expected) - and now my Model S charges well at 32a (the max for my travel charger).
What can I say ..... it's wire and conducts electricity well.
