    Which fuse type/holder do i really need?

    Which fuse type/holder do i really need?

    I have this do i really need this ?

    And the fuse holder i have says 30amps max (not 20 like on the site). i also have 30amp fuse.

    I'm running an 8awg wire directly from my battery to fuse to a distro block. I will be running screen, dvd, cb, a buncha stuff...

    Please lemme know, so i can take this **** back if i really need the other stuff.

    Thanks!

    if the holder that you have says 30A, and the fuse that you have is 30A, then you can pull 30A through it without worry. At 12V that's 360W. I suppose that it depends what you intend on powering through it and what the requirements of those devices are. But for almost any setup 30A will be more than enough.

    I doubt it.

    Try it. If there is a problem the fuse will break and then you can get a bigger fuse holder/fuse, but I bet that you will be fine with what you have.
