Toggle Switches
Can somebody recommend a good ON-OFF maintained toggle switch? I had a switch in my parts bin, but when I wired it up, it leaks voltage even when its off...that's not good for battery life and probably not good for the circuit either. Since I'm turning my Sony diode into a labby type laser, I want a maintained switch. I would prefer something that's available at RadioShack so that I don't have to wait for a DigiKey package and pay the $5 handling fee.

Re: Toggle Switches
switches shouldn't use ANY power!!!!! just get a good quality switch(eg: not the 50 cent ones) and it should be fine!!! some leakage is ok though!
