They sell thin 12/2 conduit at Home Depot. This stuff looks even thinner than 3/8 flex cable. (1/4 flex??). Anyway, is this ok to run from my panel to the new garage door opener? This wiring would be exposed for now, maybe to covered up later.

Hi,

Do you mean "12/2x25' EC AC Aluminum Cable"
known as "MC"?

OR

"Indoor (NM-B) Wire"
known as "sheathed electrical cable"

it's not sheathed electrical cable , it's MC. I comes with 2-12 gauge wires inside plus a ground wire.

#12 MC is fine for this application and superior to sheathed electrical cable - MC has a metal conduit protecting the conductors and is allowed to remain exposed in your garage.

However - since this installation Does require a permit, you might want to double check with your bldg. dept. to insure they have not amended the electric code to prohibit MC (there is at least one city in our area prohibiting MC).
