Alan,

You might have a look at polymere self-resetting fuses.
These don't break the circuit, but develop a high resistance when a short happens.
It limits the current and protects the power supply.

I have been using them for ages and never have to bother for spare fuses when operating portable.
Actually, that was when I learned to appreciate them.
