OFC and CCA Testing

Recommended Posts

The thing people don't consider is that you can get full copper wire for the same or less than CCA which is inferior to OFC.

So why would you spend your hard earned cash on something inferior?

Show me where you can get 1/0 100% OFC for $1.99 a foot. That is rated for more than 250amps at a 20' run.

I have 2 runs of CCA. Cost me $80 for 40'. Good for 500 amps.

OFC is $80 for 20' and can handle 375 amps at 20'.

ummm no.

I think you looked at their chart wrong.

1/0 can handle up to 350amps for 50feet, 100feet is only 200 amps.

If you want 350amps at 100feet you need to get the 4/0.

Its also worth mentioning that the cable is currently on sale, and to get it at $1.85 per foot you need to order 250-499 feet of it which is $462.50 - $923.15 worth of cable.

At this point that is more cable than the average person is going to want to spend and way more wire than the average person will use in their vehicle.

Welding supply.com is a pretty good place for welding wire, I bought about 50ft of 2/0 a year or so back for my welder. Quick shipping and good packaging.

I like the ultra flex wire they carry, I can't remember the exact brand of wire it is off the top of my head. I used a piece of the 2/0 in my car a a ground, as I ran out of AT OFC in the middle of my build.

I personally run all knukonceptz now, but welding wire is not a bad choice for better value. From welding supply you can get 25' of 2/0 for $3.44 a foot after shipping, which is pretty good, and it only gets cheaper the more you buy.
