Standard lamp cord. A lower gauge is a thicker wire, and more (thickness) is better. So a 14 gauge would also be OK, but not an 18.16 AWG?
28W at 240V is just 117mA. So 16 gauge for 1.5m is "overkill" based only on the amperage. But again, 16 is a standard and there's nothing wrong with overkill.16 AWG is larger than I anticipated, I am currently feeding the transformer 240VAC using 16AWG or 1.5mm cable.
