    This product made me a hero.

    The left button on my wife’s laptop had given out and was failing to register a press about 25% of the time. The culprit was a button just like this except in SMT gullwing form, soldered to the motherboard. I happened to have one of these sitting around (which I didn’t even know… the wife found it while digging through my spare parts). I straightened and bent out the legs with a pair of needlenose pliers and snipped them down, and it was a perfect replacement.

    Lesson learned: you can never have too many spare parts. (Alternate lesson: I could really use a hot-air rework station. My desolder-fu is weak.)

    I’ve got one of these plugged into a standard Arduino Uno (DIP version), and it’s working just fine with no apparent ill effects. As near as I can tell from the board, it pulls power from the Vin pin and runs it through a regulator to get its 3.3V.
