Where can I get a fuse for a Vector 350?


Hopefully you are actually referring to a Vector VEC060 Power Inverter 175/350 Watt DC/AC as I cannot find a listing for a Vector 350 in the flashlight or spotlight listings.

The external fuse for the Vector VEC060 Power Inverter is a standard 30A spade type fuse available at any auto parts store. If you would prefer to purchase online, here is a link to them on Amazon:

Do I need to put a inline fuse or does the vector sst 1200 have a fuse or breaker in it


It probably does, but an in-line fuse is still the safest way to go, connected as close as possible to the voltage source as possible. The internal overcurrent protection device (aka, fuse or breaker) in the inverter will prevent the DEVICE from melting if it malfunctions. An in-line fuse will protect EVERYTHING if the WIRING malfunctions.

Need to know what size fuse how many amps and volts for this device.


Rule of thumb for 12vdc to 120vac inverters is 1 amp of fuse for every 10 watts of power. So, this one would use a 7 amp fuse.

I have a Veco24B 400 Watt DC to AC inverter and the fuse that is suppose to be located in the cigarette lighter adapter is missing and I would like to know the size of fuse that is required.


I would put a 20 amp fuse in. The wiring for the cigarette lighter is usually around 15 - 20 Amps. The wiring also is not rated for more than 20A. I hope this helps. JOe

My name is Gena. The VEC024B that is being used by our field technicians are having problems with the fuse blowing in their work vans. Their vans are equipped with laptops.


Hi Gena, the inverter is a 400 watt unit. This is not a rating for a continuous load. You do not mention which fuse is blowing. This could be the fuse in the inverter or the cigarette lighter (power source) fuse. In either case, a fuse blowing could be a short circuit, something in the inverter shorted, or too much load. I am going to look at the too much load side of things. Not knowing how many laptops are being used, with the inverter if you have a 20 amp fuse in the cig lighter, this will allow you 20 amps X 12 volts = 240 watts. I would not run the inverter over 240 watts because of overheating issues. So, 240 watts will run 3 laptops. Just the laptops. Most laptops draw around 70 watts. check your power supplies on them to find their rating. If you exceed the 240 watts by combining the ratings, then you can expect trouble with your inverter. It will give 400 watts, but this is a temporary condition only. Another inverter will be needed or a larger one installed and it being connected directly to the battery (with a fuse of sufficient size installed). You could also (let us say there are 6 computers) charge and run 3, and the other 3 are running on their batteries. After an hour, switch so that the 3 running on batteries now are charging as well as running. The other 3 are now charging.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please provide additional information. Such as the size and location of the fuse blowing. The laptop power supply ratings.
thank you

I CANNOT FIND A REPLACEMENT FUSE FOR THE VECTOR VEC024B INVERTER.i HAVE OWNED IT FOR LESS THEN 3 MONTHS . IS THERE AN ALTERNATE FUSE THAT CAN BE USED?tHIS IS THE CIGERETT LIGHTER CABLE FUSE. F8VL250V.


Go to any Appliance parts store with your fuse in hand and walk out with a replacement. The 250V fuse is AC OUTPUT and "not" a DC input fuse. That is an 8 amp 250V slow blow fuse.

Vector 2500 watt inverter red led fault light no output. Model veco56d.


There is a fuse on these things at the back of the case. Could be in a slide out plastic holder, or in a round holder with a knurled screw or bayonet type cap. If this fuse is not blown, then the news is not good.

I have a vector 3000 watt inveter red fault light is on, wont power a 6.5 amp fuel pump


Check that ground is correctly connected. If nuetral is provided, ensure it too is connected. Your total load is 780 watts. Check power in and ground out of the supply side. There may be a fuse in the inverter on the output side also, replace if necessary. If fault light does not go out after these checks, you will need to contact Black and Decker who manufactures the vector series now.
