I would like to use a “magnetic latching switch” for turning a circuit on & off using a low-power magnet. I saw the US1881 Hall switch, which would seem to be an ideal solution; however, the datasheet says that it is rated for 50mA (max).
For my project, I would like to switch on & off the positive terminal of a 7.4v battery. My circuit draws up to 170mA.
I’m a bit confused (I never worked with these kind of switches before), and hence, I could really use some suggestions & ideas. Perhaps I should take a different approach?
