    5Amp fuse will be even safererer than a 13Amp fuse. Nothing to worry about.

    Yeah I don't think a lot of people realise if they use an overrated fuse, they are effectively turning the cable into the fuse, which is bad.

    I carry 3 and 5 for the oil boilers. Very rare to find correct rated fuse in a spur. Customers boiler blew the 5 amp, he changed it with a 13 amp. Originally the transformer took out the 5 amp, but him adding the 13 amp added the control box onto the bill.
