    Default espixelstick max amp

    The espixelsticks I have include a 5A fuse but is the the safe max? I ask because, as an example, the sandevices e682 come with 5A fuses but can (as I understand it) safely handle up to a 7.5A fuse so I am curious if there is any room to increase on these?

    Power drawn from the Controller should stay under 5 Amps, if you are running at or over that you will be needing to Power Inject any way well before you reach the limit.

    But a good rule of thumb is to never exceed 80% load so 4A would be the max you want to push through the fuse.

    I seem to remember Shelby saying at one time that the safe limit is above the 5A it's fused for by default. I know some of mine are fused higher. Though I can't recall what the magic number is off hand.
