    How about getting a panel mount female to go with this?

    the car don't output 12v all time. the output can go to 15v in certain moments.

      it's worse than that, it may be as low as ~6-7V when cranking, around ~15V with the engine running and load dumps maybe as high as several hundreds volts. A car is the power supply from hell and electronics needs several layers of protecting to be reliable in a car

    I just bought this. I cannot read the fuse rating, because the top-half of the numbers weren't printed.

    Is it a 10A fuse? (looks like it was trying to say 10A...)

  • sethcim / about 10 years ago / 1

    Great to have a fairly priced source for these!

  • melstav / about 10 years ago / 1

    What's the max current this plug (and/or the included fuse) is rated for?

    • NightEule5 / about 5 years ago / 1

      I know this is late, but he says in the product showcase that the fuse is rated for 10A.
