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.

Check the related items below for more color options!

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

Features:

  • Rated for 12V 20A
  • Includes Missile Switch Cover
  • Illuminated

Customer Comments

  • I would like to use a switch for the power supply circuit on my quadcopter.

    I use a LiPo battery, 11.1 Volts, 3300 mAh and the continuous current of the ESC is 20 A.

    Will this switch do the job?

  • How is the illumination controlled? Is it always on or is it only on when the switch is on?

    Edit: Nevermind, I see there’s a third input. Video here

  • Hi I want to put these in my 98 jeep cherokee sport, I’m thinking about switching out my rear defrost, rear wipers, and my fog lights for these switches. I need more help trying to figure out if they will fit or if they won’t, so can anyone help me, also I need to know how I to wire them up, if I get them?

  • Can the cover protect the switch in the ON position or does closing the cover automatically switch it to OFF? I realize you could wire it the other way, but then would the cover need to be slightly raised to leave it in the OFF position? Thanks!

  • Is this weather-proof?

    • These switches not weather proof nor explosion proof, and they’re very likely not safe for use with AC line voltages.

      Also, the connectors are all ¼" fastons. The overall dimensions (with cover closed) are 0.675" wide, 2" high, 2.675" deep. The panel mounting stud is ½" long (can be used with panels up to ¼" thick).

  • i looks like the quarter is a fake.
