On toggle switches... is there a specification for them or can you use any toggle switch.  In other words, for a 9 volt do you have to have a certain kind of toggle switch?  thanks

I do not know all the electronic lengo but you can always use a  bigger switch for an application but not smaller. It depends on the amount of current. For a trail camera apllication you can use just about any switch. If you were using it on somthing that was  carrying a larger current then you would be concerned. Switches are rated by the amount of current they can carry. If I am wrong some one with more experience in electronic will correct me.

With 9 volts in a cam circuit, you don't have to worry about burning a toggle. Just about anything will work.
