    I don't know what to say. I have 20 bjb holders all bought from you and 14-2 romex worked the best for me. It worked so well that when I start adding cobs next month I'll be replacing the existing wire with romex.

    i had someone else destroy all their bjb with 14 ga (stranded i beleive)

    if it grips it grips i guess. 18ga is oversized for out application to be honest

    14GA would handle 15A to a cob

    @CobKits any idea on ship times right now? My tracking info has been in pre-shipment since early morning yesterday. Just trying to line up some other shipments and was curious.

    Thanks!

    Used 16 gauge stranded from lowes. Was a bit snug but worked

    I used stranded (12 gauge speaker wire) on my first builds and it was a major pain in the ass trimming it to fit. I tried thermostat wire that I had lying around and it didn't work, the holder wouldn't grab the wire. I then bought 16 gauge speaker wire for the next build and the bjb holder wouldn't grab on to that either. So out of 4 different kinds of wire the 14-2 romex worked the best. I think 16 gauge solid would be ideal but that seems to be as rare as unicorn farts.
