In Topic: Focus Mk2 Fuse Size Mini Or Micro?

lol

 

Original charger/power for cam is a cig lighter type ...

 

Input = 12/24v 1amp/max

 

Output = 5v 1Amp/Max

 

and the step down ransformer

 

Input = 12/24 v ??? amps

 

Output = 5v 1.5amp

 

 

I cant open the original charger without smashing it open unfortunately, am mainly looking at adding a piggy back fuse between fusebox and transformer.

 

Not sure all this is any clearer.

 

head spinning lol many thanks :)

as an off chance does any one have any idea what amp fuse to use when using "add a fuse" for a dash cam, I am going to use a 10amp as the original and have a hardwire kit however my add a fuse did not come with a fuse, i thought 3-5amp but as the fuse is added before the hardwire kit that steps the voltage down from 12v to 5v i thought it might need a bigger one???

 

if that makes sense lol

I personally use blow'n'glow fuses.
When one pops it lights up for easy detection.
Smaller packs are available and Halfords do sell them too but only in small packs so work out expensive to do both fuse boxes in your car.

Yes its the "mini" type it is. you can get small packs online with a few different fuse sizes (ie 10amp,3amp 5amp.......ect) that are very handy to have as spares when you need them.

 

I included a link below to give you an idea.
