18awg or 20awg is the standard for Whelen LED modules. The strobe tube power supply cables have generally 3 conductors (sometimes with a shield drain wire as well) typically 16awg conductors but sometimes 14awg if you want to be extra safe.

I'll repeat here... 18g is the standard gauge.


sephora99, 16g may be found with some cables but they are overkill. 14g? Never. It's like running gold wire.
