Would 24awg wire be thick enough to direct drive a sst-50 from 3c nimh ??

As per title

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 batteries are 5000mah i have used thiner wire but i was only getting 2.2amp at the tail i just tried 18 awg but thats a bit thick at the led end..

i also have some 20 awg
