	Since power loss is (I^2)*R then you 
willl be losing 1600*resistance of wire, what 
i was wondering was - would it be better to 
wind 4 separate windings? say you reduce the 
CSA of the wire by a factor of four and also 
reduce the current flow through it by a factor 
of 4, since it is (I^2) then that should be 
equiv to a factor of 8 decrease - overall 
result is halving the power loss and making it 
a LOT easier to wind! Is this rubish ? Have i
