1. An electrode member connected to a terminal of a cell, the electrode member comprising:
a substrate portion made of a conductive plate material;
a connection portion defined by a first slit and connected to the terminal of the cell, the first slit being formed in the conductive plate material; and
a fuse defined by a second slit and including one ends connected to the substrate portion and the other end connected to the connection portion, the second slit being formed in the conductive plate material so as to extend from the first slit, wherein:
the connection portion has a tip and a base end, and the connection portion is vertically bent between the tip and the base, and
the fuse is not vertically bent toward the substrate portion.
