Really? Every electron coming out of my batteries goes through a fuse of some sort. And wouldn't it be extremely dangerous not to limit the current to the wiring capacity? I must be missing something.

And to the OP, if voltage goes down (for example, by reduced battery capacity), amperage will often go up, sometimes to the point of blowing a fuse / circuit breaker that would not have popped with proper voltage.
