Abstract:
A switch (1200) as for a flashlight (10) selectively connects, for example, a solid state light source (100) and a battery (60) in the flashlight (10) in circuit for causing the light source (100) to produce light. The switch (1200) comprises a pushbutton (1210) and a metal contact (1220) having a periphery that selectively contacts a housing (20), and a spring (1226). Pressing the pushbutton (1210) moves the pushbutton (1210) and the metal contact (1220) to contact the housing (20). The metal contact (1220) may include a feature for centering the metal contact (1220) with respect to the pushbutton (1210) and thus with respect to the housing (20). The switch (1200) may be disposed in a tail cap (40) attached to a flashlight housing (20).
