Can I use a ceramic fuse in place of a glass one?

I have a cigarette lighter adapter which is part of my inverter that has a blown fuse. The one in it was a 15A at 250V Glass Fuse but the one that i can find at my local radioshack is 15A 250V CERAMIC Fuse. Can i use the ceramic fuse in place of the glass one or will it cause damage?

Also there is a 15A 125V Glass fuse and the power that is being used in only 12v so could I use that instead?

I would stick to the same fuse type. Ceramic fuses will "blow" much more slowly and could cause lots of upstream/downstream damage if the rest of the circuit isn't expecting extra current.

You may want to do some reading.

Well you half answered my question, the other part was Also there is a 15A 125V Glass fuse and the power that is being used in only 12v so could I use that instead?

Missed that, sorry. Yes you can use a 125V fuse for your 12V system. As long as the fuse is rated for higher voltage, you are okay.

I tested it and it worked. with the ceramic one. There is also a 10A fuse from the power going to the circuit, a 15A fuse which is in the main fuse box attached to the line i tapped off of and then a 40A fuse at the inverter, so there is 4 fuses in the entire circuit I made so there isnt any worries i dont think
