I am starting to accumulate a number of hosts with the standard on/off key switch. I want to replace some with a on/off push button.
I have been looking around but can't find a specific replacement for them.
For example an ultrafire 501/502 switch will fit the laser hosts but they are like $7.99 on ebay and you can get the whole light for $10.
Also lots of types out there but don't specificaly say they fit these.
Just want a simple on/off to replace the key switch.
Any body know of a source?

I thought these hosts have already push on/push off switch. You want to replace it to better switches or temporary on switch ?

They don't have a "switch". It is a button you hold in that pushs a button on the module. You have to "push and hold" to stay on.
I am installing new modules/heat sink assemblies and don't want the push button switch.
Want push button stay on/off.

Ah those switches from the penlasers. Push to stay on switch.
They are pretty small. I am sure there are switches avaiable but I don't know it, sorry.

Ah, I think you might be talking about tact/tactile switches. They're easily found through electronic distributors like Mouser, Digikey, or similar. They also sell them on dealextreme. :beer:
