On the temperature

I don’t like it. The temperature at 8:00AM in the morning was -27°C.

Cool. But not for my car. It did not start. Even with a booster. The battery is definetly dead.

It started at last after a battery was charged for a half an hour.

Wire size calculations ;)

Q: Given a single 0,35mm² copper wire, how much current it will handle?
A: ~60A

Stupid me. Used DIY regulated transformes to start my Alfa Romeo today and hooked on the wrong connector. Alfa started. The insulation on the wire made a blue smoke, but … still working 😉

Anyway, got 6mm² wire for replacement.
It’s time to replace car battery too, i think. Or check the generator.
