No longer our main inverters page but a great source of wiring - electric cable & fuses! ...

12v Electrical Cable:  Automotive & equipment wire / wiring / cable. Whenever I've done electrical work on our motorhome I've always struggled to find cable supplies somewhere between professional length rolls and those hideously expensive short lengths you find in motor accessory shops!  So here are our best efforts - 30m & 50m rolls of reasonably priced cable / wire in a variety of ratings to suit everything from adding a light to running a bigger inverter or upgrading or installing an extra battery. Single or twin reels in red & black pvc sheathing only, the twins are in black outers and in handy lengths for smaller jobs. But you don't actually need different colours for most motorhome work, a quick twist of coloured insulating tape each end does the job nicely! All BS6862 Pt1. New from the 2012 season - single thinwall cable in 3 / 4 / 6mm with higher rating too. Buy Below >>>

For Solar panels we recommend a minimum of 2x 3mm for shorter runs and 4.5mm for longer runs. For the best performance use 6mm - the biggest you can use with standard crimp connectors. Although the charging current will only be a fraction of the cable capacity these larger cables have less voltage drop over distance and therefore maximise the charge actually reaching the battery - this will be of most benefit when you need it most - when charging is poor - in winter e.g.  We used 6mm on our own solar.  Buy Below >>>

Supply & Colours:  We offer these as a service to our electrical products customers so only limited stocks are held and colour voids occur regularly. We can obtain almost anything to order even the greyed-out items but plainly this takes a little longer, other colours like orange, white, grey, purple, brown, may be available and could be useful to you if you don't actually need red and black!  We do offer 'two rolls random colour' (i.e. different)' on some cable to make things easier.

Info:  12v Cable ratings: Not as simple as it might at first seem. The amperage rating of any particular size 12v cable is dependent on its construction, length, and the level of loss that is acceptable. These ratings are a guide to typical maximum current over short runs for standard 12v multi-strand automotive copper cable. 1mm 8.75A : 2mm 17A : 3mm 27A : 4mm 30A : 4.5mm 35A : 6mm 42A : 16mm 110A : 25mm 170A. Thin wall cable may have a higher rating for the same nominal size. From this list it would appear that 2mm is fine for most solar panels but the need for very low loss for best charging in low light plus the slightly longer runs involved all suggests the use of much heavier cable of anything from 4.5mm  to 10mm.  6mm is the maximum size for the larger yellow crimp connectors so in practice 4.0-4.5-6.0mm is used. All 12v systems suffer from voltage drop over distance so compensate for this with heavier cable, a run of extra heavy to one or more distribution/fuse blocks then lighter cable from there on can be a useful strategy.

Need big cable for an inverter? - check out our 240A AL540 below!

For minimum sizes based on longer runs do see this www.solar-wind.co.uk/cable-sizing-DC-cables.html

In-line Fuses:  These are heavy duty items designed to be fixed in place and to handle 30A to 250A. Ideal for installation of extra batteries, inverters, solar charging systems, etc. Both the strip-fuses and the midi fuse range are very popular and typically handle from 30A up to 70/100A but midi can take around 150A, while the bulkier mega is recommended for 100/125A upwards. Fuses and wiring are secured to the built-in 5mm / 8mm studs. Midi and Mega fuses are standard products available from many, sometimes more specialised, electrical & some automotive outlets. Please order the fuses you need at the same time, we will regrettably have to charge you the standard P&P charge for odd fuses ordered later!  By the way we don't offer much in the way of lighter duty line fuses - suggest you get those from your local car parts shop. Hover mouse over pictures for descriptionsBuy Below >>>

Fuse Boxes: Blade Fuse Boxes complete with transparent cover and gasket. Cable connections are made using 6.3mm male blade terminals fitted on the sides of the fuse box. 4 way & 8 way versions available complete with a fuse selection.


Battery terminals:  It can be handy to change certain battery terminal connectors in motorhomes. Both the quick-release snap-on-off types and the stud+clamp versions for connecting accessory power can be very useful in some circumstances. The Quick Release Terminals are designed to be fitted onto or removed from a standard round battery post battery without tools. Supplied as a pos-neg pair in Blue & Red. The clamp-ons with 8mm studs are great for connecting leisure power via 8mm ring connectors, sold as a pair. Standard yellow crimp rings will accept up to 6mm cable and solder terminals way beyond that and there is ample room for multiple rings on the stud so very adaptable.
