    Contact rating for momentary switches

    I'm sure it's been discussed but I am unable to find it by wading through the search results. I am planning a single xm-l light w/ 3.7v battery and using the Lflex that is almost available. I am sifting through digikey, mouser, etc. and want to know what contact rating is required for a light such as this. Many look the same from the same manufacturer, but I am looking at one similar or identical to what troutie is using on his "1" light.
    Thanks in advance.

    Flex drivers switch the current 'electronically', the momentary action switch is only a CONTROL INPUT to the microcontroller and carries < 1mA peak.

    i.e. for a Flex driver the current rating of the momentary action switch is not going to be a consideration in your selection process...

    cheers,
