i needed something quick to get back on the road so i ordered what was available from Mouser, which was the 30A since they were out of stock in the 20A version and it had a 12-week lead time.
With all this talk of finding alternative fuses I'd like to point out that the original Mitsubishi fuse is still readily available from 3rd parties and at a reasonable price, so there's not really any need to look for half baked alternatives that aren't a good match. I ordered mine from here:https://www.amayama.com/en/part/mitsubishi/9499a656
On examination after receiving it the fuse is the genuine Mitsubishi branded part.
The seller is in Japan and it took a little bit under 2 weeks to arrive in the UK including customs delays. Minimum order is one fuse, although I ordered two just to have a spare on hand if the first one went splat due to overlooking any damaged components so I wouldn't have an additional delay waiting for a second fuse. (As it was, the repair was successful the first time, so I still have one spare new fuse on hand, along with spare capacitors
My only gripe is that the package incurred customs fees and a resultant customs delay as ordering two
fuses pushed the total value over the threshold where customs charges apply in the UK.
(Tip to anyone ordering in the UK - if you're not in a hurry to complete the repair order one fuse and avoid the customs fees hassle...)
