    Switch question...

    I ordered some switches from Jaycar... and ordered the wrong ones (DOH!) The switches I received are very nice, however they are momentary, normally open pushbutton IP67 switches (the circuit is open, then you push the button and it closes it, but when you release it, the circuit is open again... does not stay closed)

    http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView...T&SUBCATID=652

    These switches are perfect for my lights, they are small, light, nice quality and sealed... however I need some that are clickie type on/off. Does anyone know where I can get this same exact switch but an on/off? A link would be nice if you have one (also, I like the Jaycar price!!)

    Also, if anyone can use the switches that I received, shoot me a pm and let me know... just cover shipping cost.

    It's a shame that you're in the States, I would have had them off you if you were in the UK as they are the same ones I use.

    won't they do an exchange?

    I am not sure if they will do an exchange... I sent them an email asking if they had the right switches... really, it was my fault for not looking close enough at the description.

    I have an unrelated question.... how would you use these switches? The only time the circuit is closed is when you push the button and hold it in.... don't most multifunction drivers work the other way... normally closed circuit and then open when pushed in? Just out of curiosity...

    Those momentary switches are exactly what you need for any driver with modes. Does your application only need on/off?

    These are the bees knees for the Flex drivers

    Yeah... my application only needs an on/off switch, I do not use any lights with modes, I like to just turn it on and ride and not mess with everything.

    Someone sent me a link to some ITW switches (Thanks!).. so I will try them unless there are other suggestions or I can locate the APEM switches that are just on/off (man... they are nice looking and the right size...)

    (also, none of the cheap looking Marwi/Judco switches with that big rubber boot... YUCK!!
