Is the AC180 12V DC output protected from overload?

The AC180 specs says that the 12V DC output is up to 10A. What happens if I overload it? Does the AC180 detect this and turn off the DC output without a risk of failure, or do I need to add a fuse to the output by myself?

Bonus question: Can I limit the charge current if I use the shipped cigarette lighter charging cable?

The machine has overload protection, which will automatically shut down without damaging the machine, so don’t worry.
There is no need to add a separate fuse.
Car charging will limit the current, up to 10 A.


That’s good to know.
