Cool site Bob. I like the animated demonstration.

The left side battery swells when you trip the circuit on the "How a relay works" picture. Is that normal?

These are half the cost and the website is awesome for other parts as well. I like to comparison shop.............

Anyone want Mobile Dynamics notes on relays and alarms?

I used the relay socket for my stereo system I just installed! They are a very inexpensive, clean, easy way to hook up relays...
