Description: This is a simple SPDT slide switch - great for use as an ON/OFF button, or just as a general control switch. The pins are spaced by 0.1", however they are incredibly thin making breadboard use not recommended. The switch is rated for 0.3A at 50VDC.

This switch is just a bit smaller than our popular SPDT Mini Power Switch, but uses the same pin spacing. Being smaller takes up less PCB space (good!), but it does make it a bit harder to hit and flip easily.

Customer Comments

  • Does anyone have a datasheet (manufacturer’s) for this product?

  • Utterly worthless. Intermittent contact. No resistance to any environment but the driest indoor environment.

  • If anyone is interested I made a sketchup 3D model of this

  • These switches are great. I used one for my MicroMouse robot and it worked perfectly. Tip: To put these in a breadboard, first put a little bit of hot glue on the bottom. Then they won’t fall out, and the glue can still be peeled off easily

  • In my opinion, these are not breadboard friendly. Every time I try to switch it, it pops out of the breadboard. Having two rows of pins would make this friendlier, like the ones I got with a seeedstudio starter kit. Sadly these are not as good, and sparkfun doesn’t seem to carry two-pin-row versions.

  • How well would this fit in a breadboard?

  • What is the digikey equivalent product?

  • So is the rating “0.3A at 50VDC correct????????

  • Could this be used with 9v at ~600 mA? I’m building a personal fan prototype with my mini breadboard (stuck to a foam block from the maglev train kit me and my friend used for NY SciOly xD) and I need either this or the other one here…
    Update: I’m getting the 4 of other one here. Or maybe this one. Thanks for the quick answer!

  • Perhaps the terminals on the SPDT Mini Power Switch are longer, but on this one they are just barely long enough for breadboard use. The switch barely stays in the breadboard and pops out really easily. I wish the pins were longer so it stays in better.

  • Datasheet sats .2A @ 30VDC…

  • Just a guess but the dimensional drawing looks more like the COM-00102 item… the specs should be similar
