I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It's old technology.  But still pretty awesome.  Before this I had Motorola phones and they were ok. I'm very impressed with Samsungand all the work they put into their phones and versions of android.

Apple Nazi's? lol...

Been looking for a all in one back up solution for my Galaxy, kind of like the iPhone had with the iClould.

Just found this and started playing with it.

Amp draw seems reasonable. a NEW switch COUPLED with tightened connections or new terminals on that primary interlock will solve the issue. O0 O0

I ran across some HEAVY DUTY microswitches that had terminals roughly twice as thick as any i have seen before.... NO need to tighten the terminal just push it on for the tightest connection i have ever seen :welcome: :welcome: :welcome:
36
Ok, I tested and there are about 15 amps going through that switch (photo attached in case I'm not reading it right). That seemed high to me (but I have no idea). The other two switches have 0 (I didn't try mA). I looked more closely at the newly failed switch and found that the plastic housing around the positive (I think) terminal on the switch has melted and the liquid plastic has gathered on the bottom side of the terminal (green rectangle on switch photo). I took it apart and found that the actual contact points in the switch are pretty fried/corroded. I'm guessing that with the current, or heat, the contact points are getting fried (red rectangle on switch photo). Slightly pushing the plunger is just slightly changing the angle of contact, probably letting the current arc around the corrosion a bit.


Is 15A normal through that switch? If so, would cleaning up the terminals, as tgoods suggests, help with the heat inside the switch?

I agree tgoods.... It sees line amperage for the hv components and a loose 3/16'' connection can equal hot terminals. Each time you put in  a new switch without tightening the female connector, its going to get more loose and cause more each making the switch fail faster each time. O0 O0

Here sir! I just upgraded to the Galaxy S5 active. Love it. I also upgraded my daughter from the iphone to the Galaxy. I had to deal with the "apple Nazi's" to make the switch. Apple wanted $19.99 just to talk to a technician. I called AT&t and they helped me for free.
