One end is connected to the + terminal on a 12v deep cycle lead acid battery. The other end goes somewhere else I am not sure of yet. Something that likely draws a decent amount of current judging by the size of the cable.

Reminds me of those spark testers but this is (I hope) not that.

Given the 'Autoleads' branding, I'd hazard a guess at something to do with car audio. Is there a sub woofer somewhere in the car?

I had a similar fuse on a cable that went direct to a 12v fridge on my old boat from the leisure battery bank.

I fitted similar 50A strip fuses between my vehicle and leisure battery in the campervan. They are supposed to be as near to the battery as possible, so the amount of unfused positive wire which could short circuit is kept to a minimum. Thumbs Up

Just in case anyone didn't understand my gif.

Yes, it is power to the amp for the sub. Just a fancy fuse holder.
