How good is the output short circuit protection on an IP65 12/15 charger? Is it necessary to add a fuse on the 12v DC output side?
@Rob James, if you are planning to permanently install the charger, it is recommended to put a fuse in line to protect the wiring; if you are using it as a portable/temporary charger just to occasionally charge a battery here or there, then it's not strictly necessary.
It's worth noting that there is an optional M8 or M10 eyelet connector that has an inline fuse built-in: https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/m6-eyelet-connector-with-fuse
