As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the “Prop 65” law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals the can cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive problem.

electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
This switch is perfect for ham radio applications where a foot switch is desired to switch from receiving to transmitting. Connected to the transceiver via the PTT pin on the MIC connector, it can be paired with a nice Heil headset or boom mic for contesting work or general rag-chewing. Great switch!
Product current carrying capacity is mislabeled
I measured the wire diameter as .023in or .6mm somewhere between 22 and 23 gauge. If you google How many amps can a 22 gauge wire handle you get .92 amps. Given that this wire is a bit smaller than 22 gauge, I put the current carrying capacity for power transmission at about .8 amps.
Extraordinary value for STEM!
Perfect for control of STEM devices, Arduino, Parallax, BBC micro:bit, etc. Also for dictation equipment including free! NCH Software Express Scribe. Durable and very well-made, though 250 volts 10 amps pushes common-sense safety. More suitable for safe, low voltage, not heavy-duty power tools.
