Will this switch spark when it is switched?
I am currently working on a electric longboard and I came across this problem. I have a LiPo battery providing power to the motor through the ESC (electronic speed controller). Now, when the batteries would run out of juice I'll have to charge them and in doing so I'll have to connect those leads to the charger. Most E-board builders use a loop-key to cut the circuit between the battery and the ESC. This is a good and working solution but the only problem is that if you were to forget to remove the loop-key you would potentially harm the ESC. An anti-spark on/off switch is more elegant solution, but still has the same problem.
My question: would an SPDT switch with the following specifications suffice?
Rated Voltage @ 15A 250VAC, 20A 125VAC
