    I use these in homemade bike lights. They work really well for the circuit boards DX carries, and they stand up well to high-use and harsh conditions. Easy to solder. I use these with caps and hot-glue seals, but after about a year of daily use (outdoors, in -30C weather as well as rain), they eventually fail. Failure rate is low, and well within my ... Read more

    - Solid feeling clicks - relatively high max amp rating -none- I'm using these as switches for fixed light projects I wired up.
