I want to add a 12v auxiliary outlet (dual USB) to my K. This will be used for Phone/GPS connections only. I have the auxiliary outlet and also bought a standard blade fuse connector. Now my question is what amperage fuse should I use 5,10,15?

Hi if its a K100 with smaller alternator you probably would not want to draw too much current anyway...I would suggest 5AMP as thats plenty...besides phones and GPS's do not draw much.
I have an inline 5 AMP and its fine with phone GPS and twin LCD cree lights.

Cheers Klompy

Just using the GPS and Phone charger in it a 5 amp is all you need.
