[WTD] 20mm x 5mm 1A internal fuse

    I need a 20mm x 5mm 1A Slow Blow internal fuse as the one in my Ion Oblelisk has gone. I'd normally get a pack from Rapid, but it's delivery only @ present.

    Anyone got a spare(s) so I can get it going again (assuming that's the only problem)?

    I'd consider something a bit more esoteric/aftermarket, but not going to spend big on it (<£30)

    How much is that including postage? If I end up spending £10+ I'd rather have something a bit better, rather than another 4 that I don't need.

    If it comes to that I'll wait 3 weeks & pickup a multipack from Rapid once they reopen their Counter service.

    Better? It's a fuse!

    Anyway, if your Obelisk is blowing fuses you might want some extra for 'debugging'.

    If you pm me your address I`ll send you a couple FOC but you have to promise you won`t then go and spend £stupid on a Foo fuse. If the fuse blows again you have a problem.

    Sorry if I sound a bit pissy. I am fully aware I can buy a packet of cheap glass fuses online (& pay a significant delivery charge).

    Thanks for that. Very generous. I was only willing to go for a pricey one if I was going to spend that much on a packet of cheap ones.

    I'll PM you.

    Personally I go for Bussmann fuses from RS. Open an account, and it's free delivery.

    If it's an internal fault and you put a £30 fuse (!) in and it blows again you've just wasted £30!

    Put a cheap fuse in and if works you are free to pay whatever you like for a "better" fuse with the knowledge that the fuse wasn't the fault.

    Like I said, I don't know. I'm in Spain. But I'm sure you can find some with free delivery.

    Hi-fi fuses are one of the biggest scams ever. A disgrace on science. They might as well be called Boiron fuses.
    Keep your money.
