I mean electrical resistance(ohms). The stock wiring in AEG's is crap, and the thinner the wiring, the higher the resistance. So 18 gauge stock wiring will get hotter than 16 gauge stock wiring when your firing full auto. But high quality silver plated wire won't get hot at all because there's very little electrical resistance in it.
This is also another reason to upgrade your wiring and use a MOSFET, your losing power because of the resistance in your wiring, and especially the resistance in your trigger (~60 ohms). Using a MOSFET reduces your trigger resistance to ~8ohms, giving you a noticeable ROF boost.
