    Default OA vaporizer help??

    I'm treating with OA vaporizer JB200 this year.

    I have to hook up wire to the vaporizer. I have hooked it to 15 feet of speaker wire and put a little water in the tray. it boiled out but the gator clips were pretty warm. Speaker wire seems awfully small for treating 40+\- hives. Concerned the wire may melt. I Should I just use a long ungrounded extension chord?

    What gauge is the speaker wire you are using? 16 gauge should do it or 14 or 12 would have less resistance.

    I think 16ga should be ok. If you want, you can look up Bosch 80010 glow plug and see how much current it draws.
    In auto-diesel applications such as the vw golf, etc. the current draw of an individual plug is around 10 to 12 amps. That's pretty hefty.
