    I get my 80A fuses from Halfords usually. They are wired inline from the battery. Here is one I made for a MW but the same rules apply for a FW. The fuse is in the maxi fuse holder at the top right of the image.

    Effectively, yes. A wire is attached to each end of the fuse holder and the fuse acts as a bridge.

    As a pointer to those looking to buy fuses in the future, if your passing a local car scrap yard where you can walk around and take off the bits you want, you can always scavange some fuses from cars. My scrap yard doesnt charge for bits like this, but i tend to find a few sometimes find there way dropping into my toolbag each time i go.

    I got my Accucell 6 with a laptop type power supply from eBay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turnigy-A...x/321661460833).

    EDIT: Ah, just noticed that the option to have a power supply with that is out of stock with that seller. You may wish to try this, noting that says 50W and the charger above is 80W.

    When you say gauge of wire, you mean to wire your robot with? I would advocate 12 or 14AWG for a FW. I use 8 and 10AWG in my MW and use 12AWG in my FW.
