Hi, i'm building eight led lights that i have calculated to be using 88.32 amps in total.

They are 5v led strips. Each light might be as much 8 metres apart.

So the question is - what gauge wire do i need to to carry the 5volts without voltage drop over them kind of distances.

If it ends up being not very possible i could split the lights in to two groups with two psu's which will half that to 44 amps.

cheers
