Switch for wide use in electronics – Car Rocker Switches (10-Pack / 12V) Reviews

posted by CoryV on 01/21/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Narrow design yet clear flip momentum
- comes with partially pre-stripped red/black leads, crimped at the switch end;
- 5A rating more than sufficient to drive a relay in 12V applications; one shouldn't directly switch high loads anyway.
Cons:
None really, simply good and handy.
Other:
IMHO this switch is ideal for (micro-)electronics DIY projects: since they're narrow, they allow for several side-by-side mounted in the same space as normal "wide"-sized switches.
Would have been nice if blank switches (without I/O marking) were available too; markings can be sanded off quite easily, though.
Bottomline:
Simply good and handy flip switches, at less than a dollar a piece a real must-have in your personal DIY stock.
