Which is bigger 2 0 or #2 wire?

2/0 (two naught) pronounced “two not” is a larger wire and will carry the 200 amps by your codes. #2 is good for up to 125 A depending its installation, configuration e.g. in open air, in a raceway, in a 3 wire cable, etc.

What is bigger 2 0 AWG or 1 0 AWG?

1/0 is 0 AWG, 2/0 is 00 AWG, 3/0 is 000 AWG and so on with more zeros being thicker wire.

## What is the Wire Gage system to measure wire sizes?

Wire is sized by the American Wire Gauge (AWG) system. Wire gauge refers the physical size of the wire, rated with a numerical designation that runs opposite to the diameter of the conductors-in other words, the smaller the wire gauge number, the larger the wire diameter.

### What is the diameter of a 4 AWG wire?
