Hello! Ive been looking around on the internets trying to figure out how to build a switch to turn my Electric Longboard on and off. I have a build thread for my longboard here if youd like to see the entire build. Anyways im currently using this as the switch to turn the board on and off, and its such a piece of crap. Both the red buttons have broken off so I need to use pliers to turn the damn thing on and off, anyways enough complaining. So I clearly need to get a different switch so instead of buying another one of those I wanted to try making something like this. Its just a switch to turn the board on and off but using a pretty blue LED switch connect to a circuit that actually handles the high current. So I need your guys help to deign a circuit and what kind of parts I need to make this happen. The board runs at max 25.2V and around 10-20A crusing though burst current can draw up to, lets play it safe, 90A. I was thinking I would use a couple of mosfets in parrell to control the current and have the switch toggle the mosfets.
