24awg, for shorter lengths, supports like 3.5amps for chassis wiring (not sure what do they mean by chassis wiring)

To me, chassis wiring is enclosed wiring - can't lose heat the way it can in the open air. This may, or may not, have anything to do with the real definition.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
