I have a 24v 15a lithium battery in a case and I want to put a voltage cutoff switch on it so that it can't spark when I reseat it on the bike after charging.
I found this switch on e-bay that is rated for 20a: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Heavy-Duty-20-amp-Toggle-Switch-with-Waterproof-Boot_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem439aaa64edQQitemZ...
I plan to run the positive power lead from the battery to the switch and then on to the fuse at the contact point where power is transferred to the bike. I can't reach the fuse before the switch due to the fuse mounting spot, but I could insert an in-line fuse before the switch.
Should the switch do the job I want?
Should I add an in-line fuse for protection?
