And, for those in the UK, circuit breakers that fit into standard (Audi and
other) blade fuse holders are available from Farnell Electronics:
Rating Catalogue Number
It's odd - Farnell seems to offer all other Littelfuse [sic] products, but not
their circuit breakers. The above are sourced from ETA, and cost GBP5.51 each
plus VAT. Farnell are on +44 113 263 6311, fax +44 113 263 3411.
A set of these circuit breakers is highly recommended for chasing electrical
problems - it's very easy to see which one's 'popped'.
