Yet another Poundland deal...I know...but I think this is worth a mention...needed a 15A blade fuse for the car, looked online at Halfords and Maplin and they were around 40-50p each. Went to Maplin but (fortunately) they didn't have any...then while doing the rest of my shopping went to Poundland and saw they had this pack of 20 fuses for...a pound.

The H4 bulb set they do also has two fuses included...never noticed the fuses before!

Worth remembering if you're about to blow your fuse!

Seen this the other day, it's really good for how many fuses you get, only reason I didn't buy any was because I'd end up losing them before I needed them lol.
Also they have H1 and H4 bulb sets - includes a few bulbs and fuses, which is probably more useful.

Geezer, need some of these, nice find!
#3
When I used these, on removing them from the fusebox the plastic outside bit came off leaving the metal fuse insert in the fuse box. Cue much fun trying to remove the bit left in the fuse box. I wouldn't recommend these!
#4
Dont know how many times ive needed these but could never find any laying around

Even halfords are like 3 fuses for like £2 or something daft!
#5
I've never understood how Halfords can get away with charging so much for them. Even a certain auction site sells them for pennies each.

i'm sure someone could argue that they're not accurately rated and there is a potential that they could keep the current flowing rather than blowing...personally as long as they blow at some point i'm happy.

find a local asian hardware store and these things are ALWAYS on at one english pound! they're one of the universally cheap products you'll find at your friendly corner (or a couple of doors up from the corner) shop!

Like the bulbs they may be a handy/cheap item to get you home sometime but are poorly made (see anewman's post above) and really can't be recommended as a long term solution. Poor quality electrical items in your car can lead to all sorts of expensive trouble and can be a nightmare to diagnose and fix. Car electrics/electronics just aren't 'fix at side of road' friendly any more. If I used one of these fuses to get me home I'd replace it with a decent one asap.

You may well find that your car fusebox already has spares in it - check handbook. If you use them don't forget to replace them!

Also be aware that many newer cars have a smaller blade-type fuse. These are harder to find so well worth having a set of spare ones.

I love Poundland but this is one item I'd pass over.

The quality standards group didn't take long did they! You pay your money and take your chance. Poundland does several useful items

Couldn't agree more, these are nasty. You really need quality fuses to rely on.

Cheap fuses are very dangerous if they dont blow when they should then the wiring then becomes the fuse instead and your car could go up in flames making it a very expensive bargain.Totally agree with Halfords ridiculous margins rip off

Don't think it will have the micro size fuse used in our new Astra, we popped the boot opener/windscreen washer pump (because the muppet garage we bought it from filled the washer bottle with water which froze, grr) and the replacement fuses were 50p a go in Halfords, fully tested etc. Of course we bought a few spares (and have managed to get the water out and the -60 washer solution from Lidl in the car).

I love Poundland to bits but I wouldn't risk more serious damage to a ten grand car for the sake of a 50p fuse. I haven't voted either way though because they might be OK to keep in the car for getting home if absolutely needsbe.

Hope your road rescue sub is up to date!

Poundland do MANY useful items, but this isn't one of them. I love saving money but sometimes it's just not worth it. Good luck!

Those who mention quality standards are not just being awkward.

I used cheap fuses in a previous car and it didn't blow , causing the fuse box and surrounding area to melt. Fortunately the only problem this caused at the time was that one of the two rear lights didn't work. But of course it would be major money to refit all the electrics and fuse box.
I got rid of the car pretty quickly.

I won't use these cheap fuses again ( except in an emergency )
#14
nice find
#15
I've got some of these in my car and they are utter crap.

The plastic bits are brittle and just fall apart in your fingers. I have them in the car until I buy some others but wouldnt use them if I can avoid it, they are dangerous as far as I'm concerned.

Also the little cases they come in are useless and the top doesnt stay on so everytime I go in the tool kit in the boot theres fuses everywhere as they just fall out.

Usually I like poundland stuff like this, but this particular product is utter rubbish.
#16
Could this post explain all the cars around with lights out and dodgy electrics, or are people just too idle to fix 'em? Too many speed cameras and too few cops - we're turning into a third world nation on the roads!

Only found out that the washer was fused on our Astra when I had to replace the red 10A (F7 or F8 dependant on model) for the same reason as you have stated. Surprised at the miniature size but a few spares ordered and now in place in case of a repeat failure.

I'd avoid these - they changed from 24 packs to 20 not so long ago - and on the 26th of last month the 24 packs were recalled because the amp ratings were found to be incorrect :roll:.

I can buy good quality fuses from a motor factor for 20p each for one or two and I'm sure less if I buy lots....

Found this out the hard way today - also on an Astra, lol.
