Nicelly built cheap relay – Waterproof 12V 5-Pin Car Power Relay Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Robust, decently built utility relay. Good to control high power loads, this spec 80A relay can theoretically handle around 800W. It IS sealed as shown in the picture, so it would resist even water submersion as it seems.
Cons:
Don´t know of any by this time. I have not tested any of the 3 I´ve bought but should be working.
Other:
The cost for this is about 1/3 of what I would pay for a similar (70A) relay in Brazil. So I bought 3 instead of one here. The relay seems capable of handling 80A,but the terminals seems a little small. Since I plan to handle ~60A this should do the job.
Bottomline:
You won´t find a cheaper relay with this capacity.
