The Low Profile MINI® fuse has similar performance characteristics
as the standard MINI® fuse. The lower overall height allows for
more space and weight savings. The Low Profile MINI® fuse is
designed to mate with tuning-fork terminals, which provides
additional weight and material savings in fuse box designs by
eliminating the need for female box terminals.
Time-Current Characteristic Curves
Temperature Rerating Curve
*Component Level Temperature = the maximum ambient temperature that
a single fuse will survive. This does not factor-in the heat from a
populated fuse box, but does include the heat from the current load
with the proper rerating.
**System Level Temperature represents the ambient temperature of
the fuse box at a location within the vehicle. The temperature
within a populated fuse box (in a given location) will be higher.
The limiting factor is the plating. Sn-plating’s temperature limit
is ≈130°C, and Ag-plating allows up to 150°C at the terminal
Using "Mini" Size Fuses in "Low-Profile" Fuse Slots
Over the past decade or so, many manufacturers who previously used
mini sized fuses have switched to low-profile mini fuses. (Mini
fuses are also known as ATM fuses; Low-Profile fuses are also known
as ATT fuses). If you've dealt with these fuse types before, you'll
notice that they are the same width. The low-profile mini fuses are
essentially a variation on the traditional mini fuse where the
blades are shorter. Because the fuses are the same width, this
means that on most applications, mini fuses will actually fit in
low-profile slots. Note that as low-profile fuses don't have a
protruding fuse blade, they will not fit in a mini size slot.
What does this mean to me?
As low-profile fuses are a newer standard of fuse, they aren't
quite as common as the older mini style fuse. For that reason, it
may be difficult to find spare fuses or add-a-fuses (AKA "fuse
taps) in the low-profile size. If you aren't able to source
low-profile ones from your local auto parts or hardware store,
perhaps look into using a mini size fuse/fuse tap.
If you are using a fuse tap, note that your original low-profile
fuses will not fit in the slots on the mini size fuse tap. This
means that you'll need to get mini size fuses for that fuse tap.
Add-a-fuses have two fuse slots on them but you may be able to just
put a fuse in the second slot for the accessory you're adding. Be
sure to read our post on how-to-use an add-a-fuse for more details!
Are there any downsides to using a Mini fuse in a Low-Profile slot?
The mini fuse or fuse tap will be a bit taller than the low-profile
slot, so on some vehicles there may not be enough room to close a
fuse panel cover. Note that in the case of a fuse tap, even
low-profile fuses will add a significant amount of height compared
to the original fuse. This means that you may come across this
issue with the fuse panel cover regardless if you are running a
fuse tap. In the picture below you can see the difference in height
between just the low-profile fuse and a low-profile fuse tap.
This isn't an issue we come a lot very often as most fuse boxes
have a decent amount of space. On Toyota or Lexus vehicles which
have a plastic fuse chart cover over the passenger compartment fuse
box, both low-profile and mini fuse taps will prevent this cover
from fitting. In these cases we recommend putting that fuse panel
cover in with your owner's manual.
