Bloody fuses...
« on: 13 February 2018, 19:15:41 »

...no, not that pesky fuse19 fella ;D


Plugged in my wanky Anker USB charger thing earlier, and was greeted with a huge bang - big enough I thought I might have to go for an exploratory wipe in case some poo leaked out.

I have a socket with a 4 way extension lead plugged into, which in turn has one of the UPS's, the powerline adapter and a further 6 way extension lead (which is conveniently placed for stuff that gets plugged in and out regularly).  It was in this 6 way one that I was plugging in the Anker shite.


It took out the 13A fuse in the plug of the 6 way, the 13A fuse in the body of the 4 way, the 13A in the plug of the 4 way, and the ring main trip.

What it didn't take out was the 3A in the Anker's plug.


Need to buy some more 13A fuses now, I've depleted my stock ;D

Sounds like you need the heavier duty 13 Amp type

At least the UPS wasn't FSK'd in the process.

The Hamster UPS ran fine for about 20mins whilst I dug out some fuses, and reset the trip.
