How much current can 12AWG wire handle?

I need to make an extension from the iChargers' inpout cables to my PSU, using spade connectors, 12AWG(?) silicon wire & 4mm gold bullets.

About 4" long piece of 12AWG wire from PSU to charger. Charger will be pulling ~840W (35A) (charging 6S 5Ah @ 30A)

Is the 12AWG wire safe? (This may be a really stupid question since the cables on my iCharger are 12AWG wire too.. - but one cannot be too safe )

Thx!
