    be careful - you do get what you pay for in a lot of these devices. Amazon's are moderately priced and the quality is good - Radio Shack's are way too expensive and same quality as Amazon.

    When I was modifying my kids PowerWheels - I bought good quality relays from these guys : http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?item=11-2420&catname=electric

    And These Guys : http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/category/500/Relays/1.html

    and never had any issues - your mileage may vary of course as I was doing this about 3 years ago.....pre-recession / cost cutting.



    By the way - these will handle 30/40 amps depending on NO or NC operation and you can get the socket / wiring kit that saves you a ton of time and looks neat when used properly.

    i agree which is why i had not purchased any from amazon as some of the reviews were negative.
