Don't think I've seen one of these before, I replaced it with a black one.

Hi siholtye

I have only seen black 10amp fuses. I did a bit of research last night going through BS 1362 to see if I could find any mention of previously used colour schemes but could find no references to pink 10 amp ones!

Kinda weird because it seems to have a kite mark on it?

Deffo a counterfeit, I'd say.
Only BS 1362 3A fuses should be red, likewise only 13A should be brown. All other ratings should be black.

Also watch out for blue 15A fuses that masquerade as BS 1362!
No such colour or rating exists in BS 1362.
