Are you sure that is not in combination with another wire?The Ideal yellow do indicate one #12 wire
Note that this discussion is purely academic. The NEC does not require wire nuts to be listed, only identified for the purpose. I see nothing about dealing with single conductor capping in the NEC, so pretty much any means is acceptable.That’s not a complete list, they have a info page as well, it states 1 to 3 on the box.
The fact they are listed or not is not part of the instructions, it's part of the description.the #13 was a smart phone typo. The Ideal wirenuts are listed by the manufacturer instructions, they do list one conductor. It does say in the NEC to follow manufacturers instructions.
If you are really that worried about it, just go buy some generic wire nuts with no listing or instructions and use them.Cap it yes, The Instructions on Ideal website gives an in-depth description for what there product is made for. Including which wire nut for size of wire or group of wires. I have noticed here that some people use Ideal orange for #12, I just thought it would be nice for them to know the manufacturers instructions indicate that would not be correct, the wire nuts are UL listed for what they were made for. If i purchase a switch and the instructions say copper wiring only, is that a suggestion?
in my opinion I will follow the instruction. And when i get back to my office after the holiday I will give you the NEC article.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecurePerhaps one day intelligent life will be discovered on this planet. But first we may have to climb a couple more steps up the evolutionary ladder.
Yeh but how do you know how much tape to use ?
