Zepsus Mag Switch

I'm thinking of getting a Zepsus mag switch.

http://zepsus.com/magnetic-switch/


It's 20euro ex shipping which is a very competitive price. Anyone care to share what its
reliability is like?

Is it worth a punt?

I've ordered not one but two. However yet to arrive. I know someone using the much larger HKM mag switch who is very happy with it.

My two have arrived. Small and light. However they require a separate charge lead to the battery and I will be forever worried about losing the on/off magnet.

Mine's working OK as well, but need to make a fob or wand for the magnet, someone suggested a magnetic ring as used by magicians

I use the Emcotec magnetic switches in my helis and power planes. They have a neat magnet on a key ring with a big red flag

Their switch is too large for a tight F3X type fuse. The Zepsus switch looks like a great alternative!!

I was able to get a Mag+ from Roman "Lomcovak" Vojtech but have not been able to test it yet.

http://lomcovak.cz/wp_eng/f3b/2011/08/mag/

Unfortunately for us, Roman doesn't build these electronics for a living so the batches are small and not available to everyone. But as usual, the specs, functionality and build quality are very high.
