To be honest I have never seen anyone use one, and I have only seen a single heater brand come with one (Fluval).

I'm going to say not needed.

Agreed, unless you notice a fish with white skin patches (NOT ich), hanging close to the heater and getting fried, then not needed.

I have inline heaters anyway so kind of irrelevant to me anyway

They're useful for large fish that can break heaters.
