Here's a link to where i bought: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/200pcs-L....13.vatY8S

Here's a link of AveRage Joe testing them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYmlck3q93s&t=7s

I really like those glass fuses, the only thing we have available in the states are much larger bulkier fuses. I tried to buy from that website, but they want me to confirm my credit card with a ID, copy of the card, and a recent statement.... are they on crack.... that screams hack me..... Do you know a more secure way????? I prefer Pay Pal.

I agree with not giving out all that information to purchase. But, just like we want to make sure we aren't buying from a fake seller, they are wanting to make sure they don't sell to a fake buyer (but still a little extreme with required info)

I did find an alternative:

Though, I don't know if they will react in exactly the same way as the other glass fuses. For some reason, I can't quite find the ones listed on aliexpress. I also didn't find them on Banggood. Maybe there's another name they are under.

Yes, I like the solid glass ones better. Average Joe responded to me and said that he bought them from AliExpress. I want to see what other payment options they have, I have already been signed up with myIDcare as I was one of the 20 million folks who had their security clearance information stolen from the Office of Budget Management. I wonder if anyone else has gone through the anal probe with AliExpress of is it they can not properly get to my info.

i've had my aliexpress account for a while, don't remember having to go through everything that other are having to do now.  Maybe i was just lucky.

I've been buying from Aliexpress (and Alibaba befroe that). Didn't have any weird checks. Odd!

I only joined Ali about a month ago when I ordered the axial fuses. Again, no weird checks received the order within a couple of weeks
