    This is a very popular power switch for robots in many weight classes. It can handle a continuous 75 amps easily, and has been battle-tested by many robots.

    The only complaint about this particular switch is that if your robot is hit hard enough from just the right angle, the switch can be clicked off from the inertia. We recommend unscrewing the chrome knob, which acts as a counterweight to push the switch off during battle. Some builders have also modified this switch through a double-mounting face, so that they twist the knob onto the threaded plunger to click it on, then there is no way to click it off without twisting back the other way.In any case, this is a great solution for a master power switch in combat robots!

    Exactly what I wanted

    Building an electric bike involves putting a lot of components together, not common components available anywhere. Robot MarketPlace have a lot of obscure electrical parts and even though my order wasn't worth a whole lot of money, I was treated with respect and my component was well packaged and promptly sent. Great company to deal with.

    Use as a safety switch.

    When flying large scale electric powered RC planes it's always difficult to get to the battery connections. The switch positioned to the outside of the fuselage makes it easy to turn the power on and off. The switch is well built and a great safety enhancement.

    Good switch

    For an Ebike so as to plug the battery without the spark. This switch is the ticket. Bought three so far.

    Great for the price.

    This product works great. I did have to threadlock the button but this switch is in a high vibration application. It has not once shut off on its own but is easy to pop it off in a hurry if necessary!

    The picture makes the handle and maybe even the body look like plastic while in fact they are both metallic... Takes a reasonable amount of force to throw (toggle) but that is what you want in a power button on a robot. I had a bit of difficulty mounting it as I wasn't using any materials thin enough for the mounting screw. Works great
