  • Cross.pngWe have 120V - 450W - Ga 26, 12 feet of it, 1200F max. See Nichrome Calculator.
    • Check.pngHowever, max rating of sleeve is 1000F, so we want 14' of Ga 26 wire, 386 Watts instead.
  • For 240V - here is one possibility - keeping length the same - but then the bed is 300W:


  • So instead, let's optimize for power equivalence to the USA version, 450W. Gauge 31 gets you the right power - but need to increase the length to 15.5 feet. These are the results:
