I am trying to prevent blowing fuses in a simple circuit: that consists of a battery(12V), fuse, and 2 lights(50W).
There are no switches; the lights are connected and disconnected from the live wire each time... (its just a simple circuit for outdoor use, so I kept it simple).
However, at least 1-2 month, on connecting, there is a small spark between connectors (random, rain, etc.), and the fuse blows.
The fuse is only really on there for recharging; whats the simplest solution for daily use.
--edit lamps are 40W combined parallel i dont recall the wire/fuse rating(guessing 21G and 10amps).
did switch to a slow fuse(no luck), whats the upper range I can safely go up to with the fuse?
ok, interesting about the garden lamps, cold-resistance spiking the amperage... Does that mean grounding the wire/ shoddy soldering (had been a long time) are not possible solutions/culprits? When a spark flies, does that spike the amps?
