Our Evaluation Results:
These switches have a great snap-action feel with audible click. The 4-pin layout works well in solderless breadboards or perf boards with a 0.1″ standard spacking.
These are designed for basic logic level switching but we tested them with 12V @ 1A and 32V @100mA without drama and the contact resistance was still < 0.01Ω after the testing.
