Hi,
I have to choose one out of two fuses. Both are same except in the length of the leads. Which one will be the best choice and why?
Please help on this to resolve this issue.
Thanks:???:

Post photo. What type of fuses?

Longer contacts can drain heat from fuse. Bigger contact area of legs can keep fuse box/place cold to avoid melting.

But best is to see photos of fuses and fuse place holder.

Hi,
These fuses are thru-hole fuses. As per my knowledge, after getting soldered into the PCB, the extra lead will be cut off from PCB.
See the pics attached.

length doesnt matter unless you are dealing with high current and voltage
