Default Dual Switch

Hello. I'm looking for a good heavy duty dual switch (to switch a receiver battery and an ignition battery). I like the looks of the Miracle Switch (dualwith fuel dot) but have not seen any info on how they hold up over time. The switches can be toggle, push button or slide. I'mmost interested in reliability and durability. Thanks in advance foryour suggestions.
By the way, this would go on a AMR Stick 85 (120" planerunning a DLE 111).

I just do it the old fashioned way, one heavy duty JR charge switch on each side and a GemDot fuel dot.

Unless they have improved their design, miracles switches (the bling ones)are neither reliable or durable.

Agree 100% with K-bob ..... I don't recommend the miracle switches! They are low reliability, pressure contact toggle switches and the wires are poorly supported and prone to break solder connections ..... unless they redesigned them.

Check out the dual rocker switches at Madison componenets, I have 5 or 6 that I have used for quite some time with no failures or issues. They also have a version with a little blinking LED that lets you know your switch is left on.
