SPST Light Duty Toggle Switch

I would like to add this inline to the positive wire of one of your 12V 2A power supplies to provide an external on/off swicth for a Shure 25x2 amp. If I splice this into the positive wire (+ in) and ( +out) on the two poles, am I safe?

Asked by: McLeanVA
This switch is not rated for DC voltage. That would require heavier contacts. We do not have a similar option for 12 volt DC applications.

How many amps at 12 volts?

How many amps could this safely be used for at 12 volts? Would it be good for 15 amps.
Asked by: computer2slow
An amp is an amp and a volt is a volt. I'm not sure why the description is confusing the way it is but this is a 4A switch and should never see anything more than that.I think what the issue is is arcing, the more current there is, the larger the potential surge when it is switched off. That is why the switch is de-rated at high voltages. It does not work the other way around, the contacts and internal parts aren't good for more than 4 amps.For more capacity, simply buy a heavy duty version of basically the same switch.
