    I bought a used highlighter off ebay a couple months ago. The cigarette plug was cut off. I need to put one back on it. Is 18 gauge wire heavy enough or do I need a heavier wire?

    Hmm, not sure what mine is. I have a Federal Highlighter 2 beam rotator. The stock wire gets quite warm as does the plug in my power outlet- so I would say put on heavier just to be safe. I am going to change mine for next season.
