CPW, I was thinking the same thing as you were and I checked a website that ok'ed 24 awg for .577 amps. The problem is they had like 20 of these lights on 1 line. This photo I took at the bar and was the last lamp on that line. Im not sure how/if they used all the 8 wires or just 2.
These are flourescent bulbs that used only 10-15 watts btw.
Yah, but nothing makes sense in Cuba and everything is in short supply. I found myself shaking my head at things I saw around the complex. Lots of backward stuff, like most of the poor islands. I remember 1 morning I saw 3 guys using a ceramic tile saw that had an extension cord without a plug on the end, the 2 wires were just pressed into the outlet, I kid you not! ...but again, the beaches are #1 !!!
The funny thing was when I asked the bartender if I could take a photo of that light he said: "Ahhh, you like huh?" I said: "Yes, can I take a picture?" He said: "ok"...but he didnt know WHY I took the picture ...he had no clue!....LOL
