Hey

I got one of those cigarette lighter powerboard thingos for about 4 bucks on Ebay, and I'm not sure if it's gonna stuff up the circuit if I use a phone charger, gps and an ipod charger at once? Is it likely to bust the fuse or would the thing itself be fused?

worst case will blow fuse
IF total amperage drawn by those products exceeds fuse rating

note dont put in a bigger fuse as the wiring is only rated to that fuse
so bigger fuse = fire or melted wires

normally can have them all in but use one at a time e.g. have others in standby mode or off plugged in charging
