I have a micro dpdt switch from radioshack. I can't find the specific one on their site but it's one of the small ones either micro or mini switch. Does it matter what voltage I run through it. I want to run 12v through it for an on/off for the hip pad. Does is matter whether I run 5v or 12v. I originally bought the switch for 5v stuff. leds and stuff. If i run 12v through it will it melt it or anything dumb like that. Thanks for any help.
