    There is no amp, just an OPUS plus a lilliput LCD

    Well then 15A fuse is what you need, put it under 12 inches from the battery, remember theres also a 20A fuse in the opus as well, for extra safety.

    Alright, thanks for your help. One last question... Will a 20A fuse work okay, or is it a better idea to just go out and buy a 15A fuse?

    One last question, and I think I'm good to go. A 20 amp fuse is plenty for powering a carputer plus a 7" lilliput, correct?
    150w/12v = 12.5 amps
    150w/9v = 16.7 amps

    20a is plenty.

    10.6V the power supply shuts down... so where does 9V come from?
