Amazon says this is model 218_5A (fine print). Littelfuse series 218 fuses are GLASS, not ceramic, and therefore have a lower breaking point (a.k.a., Interrupt Rating). Yet, the picture and description on this listing are of ceramic fuses, which generally have a much higher breaking point. The breaking point or IR is the amp spec at which the thing explodes rather than merely opening internally. This, of course, can pose a severe personal injury risk as well as a fire hazard in certain situations.
The IR for Littelfuse series 218.5A fuses is 50A@250VAC, while the IR for series 215.5A (ceramic) is 1500A@250VAC. Ergo, series 218 may not be suitable for a user's applications. Amazon needs to fix this listing.
IF they're genuine Littelfuses, then they're good quality. They just may not meet your needs if you get glass when you order ceramic.
These fuses are cheap and work. I bench tested one and it blew as advertised, and so far in my equipment they haven't blown early either!
5 stars. Very happy!
Order arrived quickly and product worked as advertised. Very Pleased and will definitely order from this vendor again. Needed these fuses for an old lighting switcher.
