New Rectangular switch range added

After several enquiries from customers we have added a range of rectangular coloured illuminated switches to further enhance the already large range of switches stocked.

These new switches are simple Off - On SPST and DPDT switches that can be used to switch many 12v dc devices and circuits on or off. The illuminated switch rocker provides an easy to see reminder that a device or circuit is still in the on position. The switches are available in blue, green, red and yellow and are rated at up to 16a at 12v max. They measure 25mm x 15mm and are 21mm deep and can be simply clipped into a rectangular cut out in panels up to 3mm thick.

We have just updated the website and added in a Wishlist feature that will enable signed in customers to save items to a list so they can buy them at a later date. The system is very easy to use and to update so should cause no confusion to customers. Adding products to your wishlist is as easy as clicking a button on the product information page.

Viewing your wishlist is again easy as all you need to do is to login to your account and a wishlist icon will appear in the top right hand corner of the website, which can be clicked. Transferring products from your wishlist to your cart is again as simple as a click of a button. Once you have purchased an item you can again remove that item from your wishlist with a click of a button. You can even add all the items in your list to your cart with a click of a button.
