Do any of you pop the fuses on the sled instead of removing the batteries during breaks? Is that a bad thing to do?

I remove the batts or pull the plug from the camera/fitter/whatever.

it's not bad, but they only have so many life cycle switches in them, it's like a clock counting down. usually 5000 cycles

I always pull the fuses. Pull the monitor, leave the camera line on for the focus puller to do Preston things etc. I just use them as if they were power switches. Only had to replace one once when it snapped off (or someone snapped it off)
