NEW PRODUCT - Mini On/Off Push-Button Switch

Posted by

Light goes on... light goes off... light goes on ... light goes off... with this new Mini On/Off Push-Button Switch from Tronixlabs Australia. 

Adafruit Mini On/Off Push-Button Switch from Tronixlabs Australia

This clicky Mini On/Off Button switch makes a great power switch or mode toggler. They're often referred to as 'flashlight' switches because you see them used in small flashlights. Can reliably handle up to 500mA and up to 12VDC.

This is a really satisfying switch with large flat contacts that are easy to solder or clip on to. Best of all, there's holes in the two contacts, so you could use this in a wearable project where the switch is sewn using conductive thread.

For more information and to order your switches, please visit the product page. And to keep up with news, specials and more from Tronixlabs, please follow us on facebook or twitter.
