    I want to add a 12v line off the fuse box in the cabin on my 2017 coupe. Can someone tell me the fuse size so I get the correct tap?

    The fuse box uses MINI/ATM twin blade style fuses.
    As far as amperage size that is entirely dependant on what you are powering off of the tap.

    What do you need to add a fuse for?

    I have no cmbs in my car, so its an unused slot, and hot when car is on or in acc mode.

    They don’t plug into the cigarette lighter, or USB?

    Yes I guess that they do, but that looks awful. I'd rather have something obscured as much as possible.

    My dash cam (vantrue n1) came with a cigarette lighter plug, but I have a 3.1a quick charge usb-c phone charger there, so I bought the vantrue hardwire kit and a fuse tap

    I've got an EX-L model. Is there a spot I can tap in there?

    Most dash cams don’t run on 12v power, in case you didn’t already know that.

    Well yeah, but I have to get power to run to the 5v transformer from some place.

    'cmbs' sorry I'm slow, what does that stand for? Slot 17 in my fuse box says 'Front Sensor Camera (5A)'

    I was thinking of using slot #1 ACCESSORY 10A as it only comes on in ACC mode and or when car is running. May I ask if you considered this on too?

    Cheers
