  • Power cable to M1-ATX

    How did you guys hook up the power cable to your m1? I plan on running 8 guage to it, but cant seem to find a spade terminal that accepts 8 guage that will fit onto the board.

        hmm...ill have to go back to home depot to take a second look at the spade terminals tomorrow. 10 guage should be ok...the 18 guage that it came with looked a little thin.

          i'm using 8 gauge wire and also had trouble finding a spade terminal. I bought a 10 gauge one it it fits just fine for the 8g wire.

                The most the M1-ATX will possibly ever pull is less than 10A

                So just look for some cable that will do 10A

                I just used those screw terminal blocks to join the cable together or you could buy a set of spade connectors to connect both sets of wires together.

                  Connect the 8 Gauge to the cable that comes with the M1-ATX.

                      wouldn't that defeat the purpose of running an 8G wire?

                        Depends...if there's a long distance to run between the M1-ATX and the battery, the larger the wire, the less voltage drop there will be across that distance.
