Parts Express SPST Automotive Round Rocker Switch with Blue LED 12V
Parts Express SPST Automotive Round Rocker Switch with Blue LED 12V is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great switch, but...This switch worked great for my project, but even though it says 12V for the LED, the package said 2V. I verified the truth with a variable supply. The blue LED will light at 2 Volts. It also has a current of less than a milliamp at that voltage. The optimum brightness is 2 milliamps at 4 volts, as opposed to most running at 20 mA. SO.....if you are running this on a 12 volt circuit, add a @4000 Ohm resistor on the gold ground tab in series to ground. Otherwise, supply voltage minus 4 volts and divide that difference by 0.002 for your resistor value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well builtGood solid switch and much less expensive than any retail outlet. It is really important to use EXACTLY the right size bit to drill the holes or you'll be pulling out your hair in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Error in descriptionGreat switches. But the description says that 20mm is 19/64", which is incorrect. 20mm is 0.79 inches, or 12.60/16 inches. A 25/32" or a "wiggled" 3/4" drill bit ought to do the trick.

Parts Express SPST Automotive Round Rocker Switch with Blue LED 12V

Can this handle 15V if only 2A are running to it?

Asked by: ian_horse

running this switch after the power supply for the lepai 2020+ amp (12v 3a) the light gets extremely hot….is it even a led? switch is WAY too hot. 

Asked by: beasten25
This switch does use a small LED and resistor. They will normally get pretty warm depending on the current flowing through the switch.

The switch is rated for 16A max. But what minimum current is required to light the LED? (I have 12VDC 1.5 battery supply). Thank you!

Asked by: eGuy
The LED will require very little current in order to be illuminated. Most are 40-60 mA.

how would you wire this switch to a TA2024 amp that is being powered by a battery pack? If it cant, what is the best switch to use?

Asked by: Zshul
I would recommend a simple SPST switch without illumination for an application like this. It simply wires in line with the positive power input.

will these switches work in a wet marine environment??

Asked by: tkscorp
Not for long. Do yourself a favor, use only marine rated switches, which have all copper contacts. They cost more however they will last.
