Can this switch be used to attached to copper wire and be used as a hot switch for something like a jacket. 

Asked by: ossy4life
As much as we would love to be able to help here, as Technical Support Advisors we cannot offer design project advice or assistance, we are more than happy to locate products and support you with your purchases but we are not able to design entire circuits or projects for you. If you do have the design/circuit information detailing the value of the components needed we will be happy to locate these for you.
