The electric box fuse is a quest item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Dead Money.


An electric fuse is a safety device to protect against too much current flowing into a piece of equipment, thus preventing a power overload, over heating and in the worst case, a fire.

A fuse is a thin wire, designed so that too much current flowing through it will cause it to melt. A fuse works by being the "weak link in the chain", connected in series with the wiring and equipment it is protecting. When it melts, no more current can flow through it, so the electrical device is cut off from power, and will not overheat.


  • All 4 can be found in the Puesta del Sol area.
    • 1 fuse in the same room as the fuse box, it is in a toolbox near the computers to the right of the locked door.
