Add a Power Switch

Not much to discuss, pictures do the talking. I take the positive wire (from input power DC jack) and interrupt it with a switch (that is rated for 3A), then back onto the DC splitter cable. Why a switched rated for 3A when the peak power consumtion is 1.5A? In-rush current that's why. Always use parts with overratting. 


Be sure to wrap both + and - connections with insulation tape.
