cable question

Hi there, I'm working on some LED project and i need to buy some cables for that reason but I'm interested, is there a formular to find the right diameter for a cable based on voltage or ampere or so? i think 12V and 1000mA will be too much for some 0,14mm² cable ::)

Check this:

They are out of mine as well but you have to deal with it as there is a lot of the stuff about. You can convert to the "normal" SWG with this:- http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CCUQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cadceptual.co.uk%2Findex.php%3Fs%3Dfile_download%26id%3D16&ei=wkvPTKz2HNS5jAfGjZTXBw&usg=AFQjCNHPWmOaXlxqrTEPgdD_8cbGMyCuMQ
