    Adding some rock lights to my rear rack set up. Bought some Sunpie rock lights and they run 9W and 8-30V per their information sheet. Plan to use a Air on Board switch which is rated at 3A. Need to use a relay-I understand this and can wire this up no problem. What I am confused about is the vast array of relays available when I look at Amazon or DelCity. So, what I want is a nice water proof 4 relay box (for future expansion-I need two right now for my project.) However, that doesn't seem to exist... so do I buy individual relays? What is a good brand? Any advice would be appreciated here.

    These are the type relays (280) that fit the 24 pin base (GEP_FRH-A24)
