Tip #5 Fuses are for Automobiles. Breakers are for AC electricity.

If you don't have them, don't panic.

I have NEVER used any fuses whatsoever...until I came to Ohio, indeed my more than 5 years (10 years?) prior to coming to Ohio.



But in reality, the codes department is hindering discoveries.

The truth of the matter is, I have ALWAYS simply connected to my 12v battery just as you would always Not put a fuse between your flashlight's battery and the bulb! What's the difference? Nada. My lights are battery operated just as your flashlight.

The Codes Department apparently assumes that all electricity acts the same. It does not.
Stable battery power is safe, rechargeable, and not needing all the ridiculous superfluous capitalizing components that go into AC devices and electricity.

To clarify, when "batteries" are referenced herein, we are not discussing automotive batteries with their paltry plates and violently high ca and cca (cranking amps/cold-cranking amps).

In contrast, when you have erratic electricity (such as in the manner of codes-approved 110v and 220v outrageously dangerous electricity that runs throughout your home, it's then that you need breakers (fuses). However breakers and fuses don't seem to always work anyway, do they? In your lifetime you will lose a computer or television or other appliance due to AC electrical issues and faults. In an off-grid battery-powered environment, it takes a hammer to terminate the electronics. Whereas, in an on-grid scenario, it works one day, and just doesn't the next, ensuring that our precious materialistic crap surely will not last into the next generation.

Another example of how the Codes Department, another revenue-generated scheme, hurts us all another way also. I cannot discover a new technology due to fear of putting one foot forward to do so. A real-life scenario occurred recently; I was in need of a business to install the replacement tire on a Kubota tractor. I carried the tire and rim down to the business that had performed the procedure a year prior. For those of you that reside in Springfield Ohio, we all know the dilemma our Springfield Mall is up against. It stands as a sad testament of failed planning and no REAL backup plan to counter such variables as social and economic changes and their affect on the longevity of the monstrosity of a building.

However it just so happens that the Sears Auto Center changed the same tire only a year ago and that is where I again brought the new tire for a replacement that was necessary on the opposite side of the tractor. The old man that helped last year was not in there. This time I was greeted by a young man that stated his company (sears) stated that the sears employees are only to change automotive tires. Indeed the parking lot was a ghost town and I was being turned down for a repair because of sears dictates.

So I pressed the sears employee a bit further and asked why a company would choose to turn down some business which is better than no business? Can you guess? That's right, codes dictates prevent the company from doing so. The tractor tire has been relegated to the require another place to do it, on that specializes in tractor tires (just to be clear, we are referring to rubber and some wire which is all that a tire is comprised of). My tire must go to some special-needs department or agency or other business.

Do the myriad of Federal Rules promote business? I don't know the answer to that but if our Nation's debt-clock is any indicator ( http://usdebtclock.org ), then I'd say not. But the problem is exacerbated when all the underlings jump on the profiteering band-wagon. The States add their rules and dictates and fees and fines and licenses, etc. into the taking bowl and are to the State's profit. Next we have our Cities with people delegated to also take more fees, fines, licenses, etc. to profit from. Then our townships and our community covenants further take from the production basket.

The HARVEST IS OVER! The citizenry are either already broke, or on an income tether with a job which no longer presents any semblance of security. Either way though, most cannot afford to refute the new laws and impositions being produced by the upper-classes law-makers. This taking, they do for themselves...but it comes with a scar and an end to our nation's abilities and capabilities.

It is poor-planning. Take, take, take, taking, devise on how to take, a plan on how to get, obtain, take, borrow, seize, devise .... this mentality has left our nation in ruins within the international community that no longer want to vacation here and no longer trust "us". I could possibly pose argument against the staunchest of programmed federal and state employees (if permitted the time and free speech), and prove the derivation of our nation's woes. But then I'd have to arrest them for their complicitness, and I'm too small and old presently.

The moral of our Nation's citizenry is incredibly (and rightfully) low. Our media, now monopoly-owned, leaves none of us the legal ability to tell the truth of matters, or pose new ideas, or publish new discoveries, etc. The filter of which is only one a long line of schemes brought to you by the myopic selfish few. Should we help them in their time of need? WE CANNOT, they made so many outrageous schemes for revenue that the volumes of legal ramifications would make our efforts of no avail, or the idea is stolen at the first door of bureaucracy and after hearing the idea, clone it as their own.

Let's say for instance, I know how to fix hearing in ears and do so on my own family's ears and it works wonderfully. If you as my friend call on me and specifically ask me to help you with the pain in your ears and I do the service, I am deemed criminal snared by the outrageous compartmentalization of our social and business lives. The dictates are that I must first go through a filter that poops out persons into the requisite of an M.D. license. And regardless of the act of kindness in fixing your ear, I am under the law which was created for some other agenda (your ear was not first and foremost on the law-makers minds). Regardless of my experience in fixing ears, is also irrelevant and despite that fixing ears is not my profession, it is right then and there that a choice MUST BE COERCED. The manipulation to choose one profession or the other is the norm. However the compartmentalization of our fields is why we are crippled as a nation today. Furthermore, if I should choose to pay for both fields of expertise and pay off the departments that take the money for the licenses and insurances and forms and fees, etc., now again our nation is crippled in that the creative lower classes are not in the mix, they cannot afford it (and the whole act of limiting the masses is clearly a revenue-scheme and unnecessary to our survival as a nation).


We may not be able to stop the inevitable, BUT WE DAMN SURE SHOULD TRY TO DELAY the inevitable or it's our kids lives that hang in the balance.
If God were to come down and walk around, this present form of strangling system of justus and economics would invariably have him GUILTY of trespass, Guilty of healing without a license, guilty of vagrancy, guilty of disorderly conduct, guilty of disrupting the normal routine of the present compartmentalized businesses, guilty of inciting, guilty of insurrection, and god-forbid if he didn't follow the dress code or speak in an "acceptable" language devised only for and by the lawmakers within their courts to defend himself!

Oh sorry, wrong page. Batteries, right!

Okay so,

1.) 12v is relevantly safe. However, it is not advisable to hold your tongue up to a 12v battery as you might with a 9v square battery.

The volts are safe, the amps can potentially kill you (depending on what type of 12v battery you are experimenting with).

110v and 220v in contrast have killed people around the globe every year, whether it be due to electrical shock, fires, power outages *(medications that need to remain frigid), etc.

When was the last time you ever heard of tragedies caused by a 9v battery or a 12v battery? That's right, probably never. I'm not saying something can't happen without fuses, it just hasn't ever for me.

2.) 12v battery power is stable. Deep-cycle Batteries are stable, and only unless it were purposeful, the energy from batteries never spike (we can't possibly state that about the nation's forced 110v ac electricity. We have ALL been victims of the power spikes and outages).

3.) 12v Does not create fires. However, we A L L have witnessed the fires from the forced 110v ac electrical grid. A free country ought to practice what it preaches and become the model nation for the rest of the world to emulate. Give us a free choice, for starters.

4.) Scams. Enron-type profiteering/racketeering scandals never happen when you own your own power plant (battery bank).
You aren't going to over charge yourself next year....you aren't going to swindle yourself the year after that....You aren't going to "pull" building #7 at the world trade center embarrassments to destroy the evidence against yourself the year after that.

Fuses are unnecessary in battery power (unless you are in a moving vehicle). You DO need fuses in an automobile due to the function of an automobile battery, its manner of recharging, and other variables that affect stability.

The point is, 12v is virtually harmless. Nobody has ever died touching both opposite terminals of a 12v battery at the same time (just as its harmless to do so with a 9v battery).

However 220v and 110v monopoly electricity probably will send you off to the hospital if you touched both terminals at their power plant, or you could die, or at very least touching both terminals of that dangerous AC electricity will have you re-think whether or not you ever want to do that again. Touch both poles of 110v or 220v at the source, and it could very well be a wraps for the rest of the day for you.

In contrast, I've yet to see a codes inspector worry about the existence of a breaker box in the house that runs the dangerous 110v and 220v electricity. He has NEVER been concerned to inspect ("investigate") since the first profit was "made" in the form of a building fee when the house was built in 1940. Why do you suppose that is? When once we had elected officials, has become selected CEO's/Public Relations buffer entities instigated by the upper echelon, the "power-elite" (ie. haliburton/cheney; harkin energy/bush, trickle down etc.).

So, do I profess that fuses are paramount to your survival in quickly getting an off-grid system up and operational?
Nope, Sorry.
I'm not going to lie, you're probably just throwing your money to others needlessly, when in fact that money could be better devoted toward your next solar panel or battery.

If you're going to outlaw my 12v battery being used in a stable off-grid manner, then shouldn't one first be concerned in outlawing the automobile that has killed millions?
The automobile battery is in an
unstable environment, when placed in a moving vehicle (and we all know that the plutocrats are not about to give up driving this week so we won't be expecting that law to pop out of the woodwork, against themselves anyway).
