Hello. I want to use 2 switches in my project.

My first switch will be between the solar panel and charge controller. (Roughly 2.5 A / 16 Ga wire)

My second switch will be between the solar battery and any loads. (Roughly 2.5 A / 16 Ga wire)

I assume I can use a switch like this.

Where do I find the correct size quick connect pin and where do I buy the crimper?



Also, does anyone have an idea for a panel mount single pole 4 position switch and how to connect wires to it so it looks decent? (Roughly 50mA / 22 Ga wire).
Possibly something like this but those pins look like the solder type. upload_2019-10-13_17-1-59.png

That is a typical 3/16" spade connector. Go to an automotive chain or hardware store. Any crimper can be used. Use a little common sense and initiative.

The flag connector is for 0.25" spades, but you get the idea. Blue is for #10, but I stuck a piece of #12 in the connector to take up space. The wire is #22 stranded. I bought both crimping tools on AliExpress.

@ElectEng - Those rocker switches are half the price from other vendors:

Thanks. You are right. I didn't really plan on ordering a switch that expensive.

Good idea. I will look more into this.
