    ..and another remote switch

    ]well it seems to be the season for new builds an remote switches
    after reading Goldiggers thread..
    The ugly remote switch
    i thought i`d post my solution,
    parts list
    a lupine light mount
    tactile switch off a bFlex driver
    piece of innertube
    wire off a cellfone charger
    deans micro connector
    .................................................. ......
    a small recess was dremelled in the mount to accept the tactile switch
    also a channel for the 3mm dia. charger wire
    bit of hot glue or silicone, and superglue for the innertube

    The Lupine mount is rather expensive...
    A MS could suit too

    Anything with the word lupine on it is expensive..

    Nice simple build H..
    I thought about using a piece of rubber sheet with a non waterproof tactile switch.

    Looks good!
    Is superglue water proof?
    I working on a similar design and trying to figure out a quick and easy covering like yours. I've got plenty of scrap innertube on hand.

    Very nicely done HH.

    You could try these inner tube patches from Campmor: http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___54019

    They seal an innertube, they should be waterproof. I've used them as tactile switch covers before. They seem to stick to anything.

    Great job. If I didn't just use my bastid mount for my 2x xpg build, I would have had to copy this great idea of yours!!
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    In case folk want some bflex switches - I have a bunch extra since I don't ship a switch with the b2flex - I can provide them for cost of postage. I'll limit it to 5 per person, switches are free, you pay postage (padded envelope etc). So, let's say $2 within the US and $3 international. I probably have around 200 or so switches on hand. Or, if you order a driver, just mention you want some switches included.

    cheers,
    george.

    I was wondering what I could use that switch for - now I know!

    Is there any reason why I can't wire two switches to the same contacts on the driver? I like the idea of a remote switch (no taking hands of the bars) but I also like the stat LED of the waterproof mom switch I use.

    Parallel switches are fine.

    Superglue is waterproof. It wont create any kind of waterproofing on it's own but it's function is not affected by water. It can be used effectively underwater.

    I REALLY like this switch
