    I don't get what mean 30AWG wire, as advised to solder wii modchips with. Is 30AWG the size ?
    Where I ordered my Wiikey, I got 0.2mm wire and 0.5mm soldering wire, it that ok ?

    American wire gauge (AWG) 30 = 0.01 inch diameter or 0.2546 mm.

    Edit: Oh yeah, see what 30 seconds of googling can find you. It's easier and faster to google then to post forum posts [​IMG]

    I tried to search 30AWG on google, but all the results were stores, didnt think to try only AWG ^^'
    Hum, 0.2mm is quite close (32AWG), will it be ok ? What about the solder ?
