        How Does A Fuse Work?

        If more electricity flows through a fuse than it was designed for, the fuse heats up so much that it melts. This opens a gap in the circuit, which stops the flow of electricity and protects the more expensive components from damage. See how a fuse protects a device from too much current in this animation from Design Squad Nation.
