Post Usb Charging Outlet help Needed!
So I want to put one of the usb outlet things that run off the battery under my scooter seat (the cheap one in the thread: Battery tender < usb power outlet = very cool) and was going to add a fuse on the positivewire to keep it from destroying itself, so here's the question: what size fuse?

since usb is such little wattage
I would go for 5 amp
as long as the wiring is rated for 5 amp or larger

but if your using a real battery tender pigtail they come with a fuse already on the wire

Post Re: Usb Charging Outlet help Needed!
it only pulls one amp. I would throw a 5 amp in there.
Battery tender's come with a fused sae pigtail, and that has a 7.5a in it.

I would use whatever I had around, 3-8amps.

I don't see a fuse on that one...USB units will constantly draw power from ur battery...what type of scoot u got? A 50 or a 125? If its a 50 I'd be sure to have a battery tender handy!
