Risk of Fire. Do not replace any vehicle fuse with a rating higher
than recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. This product is rated to draw 10 amperes
from a 12V vehicle outlet. Ensure that the electrical system in your vehicle can supply this
product without causing the vehicle fusing to open. This can be determined by making sure
the fuse in the vehicle which protects the outlet is rated higher than 10 amperes. Information
on the vehicle fuse ratings are typically found in the vehicle operator's manual. If a vehicle
fuse opens repeatedly, do not keep on replacing it. The cause of the overload must be found.
On no account should fuses be patched up with tin foil or wire as this may cause serious
damage elsewhere in the electrical circuit or cause fire.
