    The Udoo Bolt Gear comes with two power connectors and neither are for the UK, here is how I solved the problem. Using the US cable I cut the connector and wired it like the photo:

    Weird coloring for the ground cable, did you check it with a continuity meter?

    Yes, would not risk it otherwise . And also checked the output and polarity of the PSU. The earth is a greenish colour.

    Those are the standard US wiring colours, strange but true.

    13A fuse is not appropriate, it should always be a lower rating that the wire, so 5A or 3A, in this case.
