    divide the wattage by the voltage and then add some. P = VI. As far as type, it is up to you: blade, littlefuse, whatever...

    I beleve the Powersuply i 90 watts and im running on 12 volts.
    Would that mean i Need a 7.5A fuse? If so i just settle with a 10A?

    Yeah, 10 or 15A sounds good.

    ok - well that must mean the question wasn't directed towards you but rather the OP...
