Nigel, please refresh my memory on the fuse you recommend for the A129. Thanks!

That's how the hardwire kit comes with the A129 I bought from Amazon. If memory serve, I think it's a 15 amp fuse for a micro3 fuse. Here is a good link in regard to the hardwire kit.

5 amp is correct, 2 or 3 amp would also work fine.
15 amp is too much to protect the cables properly.

Yes I do:)

Then this is a great video to help you understand how fuse taps work:

This video is mandatory for all people who wants to hardwire power banks for camera. While average power consumption of camera is ~0,25A@12V (for Viofo A129GPS DUO*), power consumption of power bank while charging is up to 15A@12V (for Cellink Neo9).

Question of the day. Do fuse taps have to be installed in a specific way?

Yes, based on the type of fuse you are using. The video I posted above shows you how and where the fuses mount.
