Question Lighted toggle switch?

Does anybody know where to get those lighted "Bat" syyle toggle switch? Not the ones with the flattened plastic toggel that lights up but the ones that have the nice round metal toggel with the light right in the end? If anybody has any other ideas for a nice looking switch to mount on the dash that has an indicator and looks "nice" I'm all ears! Thanks.

Make sure whatever you buy can handle the current you plan to put through it (many switches are set to handle small AC loads, rather than DC loads with a fair amount of current) - Radioshack has some lit switches (there is a flat, round rocker switch with a single light on it which looks pretty discrete) - Digikey and Newark both have alot of switches as well - I would figure out what you need power wise, and what type of switch you need (I assume an spst on-off sort of thing is what you are looking for) and take a look (I didn't see anything like what you described, though)

I was looking for exactly the same kind of switch to control my boost controller...
I finally found it at my local marine supply store....
It's made by Cole-Hersee and it has a round,thin handle with a red light in the very tip...The handle is plastic, but very strong nylon and the black color matches nicely with the charcoal interior of the WRX..
It's also quite heavy duty, with brass terminals and rated at 25 amps...

Look in automotive switches or switches.....
