Do I need an inline fuse holder when adding a second battery to my car?
Yes, actually you would need two inline fuse holders in a dual battery installation if Battery A is under the hood and Battery B is in the rear of the vehicle. One inline fuse holder would not be able to protect your vehicle because with a second battery, power is already on both sides of the fuse at all times. An inline fuse holder should be placed near each battery protecting the cable that is passing through the interior of the vehicle in case of an accident.
