I used 26 awg wire is this ok?

Post by undisputed » August 2nd, 2020, 9:19 am

I'm new to modding and I heard that VCC and GND wires need to be thicker for safety reasons, so I used 26 awg wire for the VCC and GND on the PSIO install, but 28 awg wire with the rest.

Is this ok to do this? As in there won't be any long term problems caused by using 26awg wire?

If you're using our wire, you'll be fine. Thick wire is only required for substantial current draw, and the Switch Board pulls under 1000uA.
