Title: Wearable switch on-off
Post by: riva1919 on Apr 18, 2017, 02:45 pm
Dear all,
I'm looking forward a wearable on/off switch (for a 1100 mAh LiPo battery powering up 25 leds more or less 400 mA, so I cannot use the Lilypad power on module...) in order to give to the customer that will fit the dress the possibility to switch on/off all the leds. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!

Best wishes,
riva1919

You could look at small slide switches

Or maybe add in a switch like this

Or just the switch

Hi CrossRoads,
thank you for your reply!

I see the links but they are too big for a dresses, I mean I am looking forward something with width like lilyPad (1.8 mm). Is it possibile?

Best wishes,
Walter

Did you look at the surface mount slide switches? I don't think you can get smaller than these.
