This or that, one or the other, perhaps or perhaps not! So hard to make decisions these days without feeling like you’re just going back and forth constantly. Deciding whether or not to use these mini toggle switches? That’s the easiest decision you’ll make all day!
These Mini Panel Mount DPDT & SPDT Toggle Switches are great for any project where you need two switches each with two options to select between. Maybe you’ll be selecting between two voltages? Two audio outputs? Two sensor inputs? It’s up to you! They’re short, sweet, blue, and to the point! The part is marked at 6A 125VAC but we haven’t tested it at such high current/voltages and don’t recommend it for more than 1A at 24V.
DPDT 6 Terminal or SPDT 3 Terminal ON-ON 2 – Position Latching Toggle Switch.
Each switch is assembled with two hex nuts, a flat and a locking washer.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
