Amp is always on fuse... Check

/

If your charger is 12
volts and 20 amps...

Well, 20 A * 12 volts, 240 watts... ( power supply )

If your house is 110 volts AC..

So 240 watts / 110 volts, 3 amps...

You probably need a Slowblo 3 amp fuse.

Fuse

So if my house is 230V I should get a 1A fuse? Thanks for the quick response!

This is a general calculation.
Amp rate must be on fuse...

The answer is yes... The higher the voltage, the lower consumption in amps...
Power is the same.

So, I figured out your power supply should be running good on 240 volts AC, fresher at 1 amp.

Magnifier

Shows 8A 250V I replaced with a new fuse but it didn't power up. I think I fried it.

The purpose of the fuse is to protect further damage to the board.

If you replaced fuse with exact rating and it blows again, something else in circuitry went open such as a capacitor or diode (depends if ac or dc)

As Juan asked, state your actions that led to fuse blowing.

Messed up

I attached a dual charger to charge two 6s 5000 mAh 60C LiPo batteries and a second charger to charge a third. I abused her I guess. Good thing the chargers are okay. Hehe.
