Add fuse to robot battery?

Would there be any point in adding a fuse to my robot's battery?

Depending on the motions the amp usage will probably be around 0-80A, at standard servo volts.

Not sure if it would be necessary though.

Thanks in advance

Yes, fuse is needed to stop fire if there is short circuit.

Alright thanks a lot

I agree. Fuses are generally a good idea.

Apparently there are even resettable circuit breakers for DC loads common for robots.

At 80amp I would be looking for a certified dc circuit breaker.

Even if you are not drawing that amount, the battery or power supply you are using must be capable of that and more at fault levels.

Ever heard of ionisation in DC circuits..??

Or is the 80A a misprint..?
