    Default Which Fuses

    Ok fellows of the forum. Is it ok to use a 5amp fuse in a plug, when when it says on the plug 3amp? It is for the use of my laptop. Thanks.

    Yes.

    It just gives you slightly less protection. Don't worry though, the laptop likely has fuses inside that will protect it.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Thanks Rebbonk, even though I don't understand about fuses.

    I started my working life as an aircraft electrician. LOL - It all went downhill from there
