Thanks

Hi Mark,

The user manual shows the fuse as being item 'C10' but doesn't give a rating....not very helpful.

A supplier (amongst many) for the adapter has an image that shows the unit rating as 1800mA :-

https://kamsat.co.uk/index.php/president-adapter-for-12v-power-supply-and-external-antenna-for-president-randy-3.html

But, they also specify a 'Safety' rating of 5A ???

I would have thought a 2A rated fuse should have been enough but perhaps a Charlie Tango member who maybe owns this radio and/or car kit can confirm.

(If it's just a charger for the radio's battery I would suspect a smaller rating fuse would be used the current draw being 700mA or so then perhaps a 1A fuse.)


Always worth remembering that "fuses" aren't elegant solutions to 'protect' your radio but usually to prevent fires from over current burnouts!


I hope you get sorted.

All the best,
Victor

Thanks Victor, 

Yes, you'd think the manual would include the fuse details but I suppose they don't expect People to loose them either :-).
