Fuses RE Box Mods
Hi Guys, Hope you're all well.
Apologies if this is a stupid question, but...
I'm looking into buying a parallel (I think, with two batteries) mech box mod, admittedly for aesthetics (imho they're just better looking than the regulated boxes) I have, in theory, a fair grasp of battery safety and such. However, with my first mech I'd like a bit of insurance, ie a fuse, at least until I'm 100% on my coils and calculations. I've seen the magnetic ones that fit the top of the batteries. So my question has 3parts

1) Do they actually work
2) Can you fit them into a parallel box? And if so;
3) Would I fit one per battery?

Cheers Guys

I did fella. Smile I replied this...

I see. I don't know now. Haha. To be fair I'm not planning on subbing on it just yet anyway. My Kbox will fire down to .4, that's as low as I've gone. I'd only have them in until I was 100% confident with my coils etc. Work my way up to full on thunder storms haha. That said then do you reckon they'd fit, and if so would I need one on each battery?

RE: Fuses RE Box Mods
In theory it's possible though AFAIK nobody makes fuses of suitable ratings for the power levels routinely used these days. The problem in my experience is that the device blows to protect the fuse rather than the other way around just too often. 60W at 4V is 15A, some mods can require way more than that. I have a 3 cell parallel mod that would happily supply up to 90A with VTC3 cells in it. At full charge that's a little south of 400W and would be likely to ignite the juice...
