Description: This simple on-off switch is rated for 20A at 12V but who cares about all that, it looks way awesome. These toggle switches come with those missile switch covers that make your project look like something out of a spy movie. They’re also a great safety feature to ensure that you don’t accidentally fire the missiles (or whatever it is your switch does). As if you needed any more convincing, they’re also illuminated with a small LED in the end of the switch. These can be panel mounted into a 12mm hole.

Note: The LED can be illuminated with as low as 3.3V.

What I like most about this switch is the SOLID spring on the cover, feels like something that will last. The illumination and cover is what made me look for a great project to put this in, it sat in the drawer of switches for a while before finally everyone said “This is the switch we must use”

These switches warranted my purchase because of their classic toggle styling and LED lighting. The spring is much stronger than I expected, but it makes for a quick and easy off toggle. I measured the voltage drop across the LED as 1.9V, and it had that same voltage drop across each positive connection. I accidentally wired my first one up without enough current limiting resistance and burned out the LED, but it still looks gorgeous. I did not find a competing product that was this inexpensive in my short search.
