## How many watts can a fuse take?

Remember this simple rule: Volts times amps equals watts. Here are two examples of the rule: (1) If the circuit is 110 volts and the fuse is 15 amps then the circuit will handle 15 times 110 or 1,650 watts. (2) A 110-volt circuit with a 20-amp fuse will handle 20 times 110 or 2,200 watts.

### How many watts is a 5amp fuse?

Multiply the voltage by the amps and this will give you the maximum number of Watts you can place on the circuit. If your lighting circuit at home is protected by a typical 5 amp fuse you can multiply this by the voltage to get 1150 Watts.

#### How many watts can a 1 amp fuse handle?

How many watts can a 1 amp fuse handle? 3kWatts divided by 230 = 13.04amps. 3000 Watts is the maximum it is safe to put on a 13amp fuse in a plug.

How do you find the maximum fuse size?

The fuse rating can be calculated by dividing the power used by the appliance by the voltage going into the appliance. I (Amps) = P (Watts) ÷ V (Voltage).

How many watts can a 10 amp fuse handle?

1200 Watts
10 Amps x 120 Volts = 1200 Watts.

## How many watts can a 3 amp fuse take?

Plugs for appliances rated up to about 700 watts should have a 3-amp fuse (coloured red).

### How do you size a 12v fuse?

Find the size of fuse by multiplying the amps required by the device (2) by 1.5. 2×1.25 = 2.5 then we will round up to the nearest fuse size (in multiples of 5 amps) which would call for a 5 amp fuse.

#### How do you know what amp fuse to use?

You’ll usually find the fuse rating on the side of your fuse, which will be given in amps. Fuse rating is the amount of current needed for the fuse to blow or break. When this happens, it stops the electrical power from flowing through the electrical circuit.

How do I know what amp fuse to use?

You’ll usually find the fuse rating on the side of your fuse, which will be given in amps. Fuse rating is the amount of current needed for the fuse to blow or break.

How many amps is 1000 watts?

8.33 Amps
Watts To Amps Table (At 120V)

Watts: Amps (at 120V):
1000 Watts to amps 8.33 Amps
1100 Watts to amps 9.17 Amps
1200 Watts to amps 10.00 Amps
1300 Watts to amps 10.83 Amps

## How many watts can a 13 amp fuse take?

3000 watts
Plugs for appliances rated between about 700 watts and 3000 watts (the maximum rating of a wall socket) should be fitted with a 13-amp fuse (coloured brown). For example: 13A Fuse – Washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, iron.

### How do I choose a fuse size?

In order to select the right amperage of the fuse, you first need to know the full-load steady-state current of the circuit at an ambient temperature of 25º C (68º F). Once the current value is determined, then a fuse rating should be selected as to be 135% of this value (taken to the next standard value).
