I'm hard wiring an inverter into my automobile. Tapping into a 15a fuse in the fuse box. To hard wire it I had to remove the "cigarette plug" and in so doing removed a 12a fuse. I have an inline fuse connector which only takes "bladed" automotive fuses and none of them appear to be 12a, everything I see online for this type of fuse seems to go from 10a to 15a. And I am having a very hard time finding simple 12a inline fuses designed for 12v systems and 12g wire.
So, can I replace the 12a "cigarette lighter" connector fuse with a 15a inline fuse? Or could this endanger the inverter, since it's designed to be protected with a smaller fuse?
