Actually I am using 1/4 watt resistors. Also I note other suppliers are using the same wire, so either they blatantly copied me ( which I suspect) or they found that to be the correct wire.
I think the 4 wires correspond to + and - for the heater and sensor. So I think you just have it on the other line, but still the sensor.
Are you sure you're wiring yours correctly? I think you might have wired yours through the heater wires.
I'm using 1/4 watt and that is running fine.
It should only be the signal from a temperature sensor that is going through those two wires - not much current at all.
Check out my pic and the disclaimer ;)

The plugs are JST-XT.
Update - I now recommend using a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor as the 13 ohm can drop the temperature a little too far when printing with Taulmans nylon. The 10 ohm will give around 250-255 C.
I also now offer the patch lead for those who don't want to, or can't make their own. 3dprintergear.com.au/UP_low_temp_filament_mod_p/templead.htm
