Default Too Good To be True

I found a 10 500A ANL fuse for 13.75$.
It seems too good to be true.
Not sure if they are legit.

Lol. The pic is clearly fake. However, I generally buy fuses on ebay all the time for right about a buck each. I think Install Bay are a little small for their rating, but a decent value over all. Install Bay is actually owned by Metra.

Lol I'm aware that the picture is fake.

I just happened to cross by that.
The cheapest that I've seen so far is 10.99$ each from Rocksford.

I don't think your gonna see companies making over 300-350 amp really. Seeing how 0/1 Wire is only rated to handle that amount.

I think "too good to be true" was reffering to the price, not the amperage

$13.75 is a good price for an ANL fuse? or is this sarcasm?

You Fuse For The Wire Rating, Not For The Alt Or Power Draw.

Otherwise, You Would Burn Your Car Down Drawing 500amps From
A single Run Of 1/0 Wire
