I wonder if the fuse blew for a reason?  Perhaps the charger has had it  Roll Eyes

I notice one picture says "bypass fuse". I strongly recommend you don't do that.

As recommended above a new holder from Maplin is only a few £.

Never been aware of voltage ratings on a fuse before but a quick Google explains all.

It's probably easier to get a whole new fuse carrier from Maplin, CPC or RS.  You would need to solder it in though.  As said, a 10amp slow blow fuse is probably best, as long as the voltage rating is higher than 24v.

Sorry about delay in replying but I am not getting email notifications.
Not sure what type of fuse, see image.

Photo?

Is it an automotive type fuse?

There must be a hole where it goes?

CWatters,  thanks for your explanation.

I have emailed several companies including Roma but responses have been poor.

A fuse rated 125V can be used on lower voltages (eg 12, 24, 48V) but not the other way around.


Perhaps contact..

Thanks Natedog, that makes sense to me as a layman (dont understand this elec stuff)
I did find another label on the side which states:
"Fuse 10A  125V"

So the 10A would stack up but where does the 125V kick in for the fuse as input is 230/240V AC and output is 24V DC,  is it some sort of over-protection? Or maybe a standard size fuse?

If the output is meant to be 5A then chances are it will be a little more than that for the fuse.  Probably either 7.5 or 10 at a guess, but that is only a guess

Help with size of fuse for mobility scooter
Jan 28th, 2018, 3:54pm
 
Father-In-Law has lost the fuse and fuse holder for his charger for his mobility scooter. (Roma Lyon)

I am trying to purchase both for him but unsure of fuse size, mobility companies not replying.

Charger is Input 115/230v AC,  60/50Hz   3/1.5A
Output: 24V DC/ 5A
Batteries are: 2 x 12V 34AH   (in series 24V)

Can anyone give me an idea as to what size of fuse (Amps) would be required for the charger output.
