    Ok, so it says in the Datasheet that an Omron G5LE Relay has a minimum permissible load of 100mA at 5V. Soooo...what if I use 5V, but a current draw of less than 10mA for example (like a 5V/2.5mA buzzer load or something)? What happens then?

    Please don't ask why. I just want to know what happens. Thanks! :D

    It fails to make a proper conduction path.

    ps, you can buy relays with gold plated terminals that work at very low currents.
