    DNA40 box project

    I am planning on building a DNA40 box mod with parallel 18650 batts. So far I have the DNA40, and a dual 18650 battery sled - this one https://www.fasttech.com/p/1279300

    Next on the list of things to get are switches/buttons. Would something like this be suitable for the firing button? Round Head Metal Push Button Self Reset Switch - Silver + Blue - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    I had toyed with the idea of using a potentiometer for wattage up/down, but from the looks of the DNA40 datasheet, this is no longer an option (was with the DNA30 I think)
    Would this be suitable for up/down? Ship Style 6-Pin Switch - Black (5PCS / 125~250V) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    And if not, what about these?
    MaiTech 6*6*7MM Touch Switch / Micro Switch / Button Switch - Silver + Black (100 PCS) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

    Thanks.

    This switch is 33mm across! Unless your box is huge, this is not suitable........

    had a look through the Jaycar catalogue ?




    Gaffer Tape is like The Force - it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together

    Jaycar had some switches that looked good.

    I imagine it's going to be big. I was thinking one of the larger 1590 hammond boxes. As it's my first one, I want plenty of room to work with on the inside, as I'm bound to stuff something up.
