The board is supplied with 3 7.5A ATO fuses but can be used with up to 10A fuses meaning that up to around 180-200 pixels per output can be powered at 100% brightness.
    The boards are $AU38 including GST which works out to around $USD24.40 or £18.55. There is discounts for bulk quantities and they ship pretty near anywhere in the world.
