Thanks for a great tutorial. I’ve been wondering about these little switches used in breadboard power circuits – they’re all pretty wimpy in the current department, e.g., the one listed in the parts kit for this tutorial is rated at 200mA. Doesn’t that mean that the entire current usage of the design hooked up to the supply circuit is limited to 200mA before the switch will weld open or otherwise destruct?
All the beefier switches (1A+) that I’ve seen are huge and don’t have pins suitable for direct/convenient use on a breadboard. Are there higher rated but BB-friendly (no soldering required) switches available? (Where?)
No public wish lists :(
