I've seen various questions about how to avoid having to use a paperclip, some love the paperclip, some fear the power it holds. This should make lives easier for the latter.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261273247128

Now you don't have to worry about the paper clip trick, or "tricking" the power supply, it's a good 'ol analog switch that will allow you to turn on and off the power supply, like magic, only it's not magic... it's a switch.

Enjoy!

P.S. It's not my auction, but after countless hours of intensive internet searching I found it :-)

Just wanted to come and say this is exactly what I was looking for and the eBay auctions are still running more than two years later. Thank you for linking them.

The seller has been selling a lot of gear that miners can use.

I have purchased 10 of these from him over the last 3 years of mining

Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to : 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr
I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

They are on amazon with a 5 pack for 14$, they are cheap and work great for my psu's, I haven't tried the one in OP but I don't like the cable and switch, it gives the impression of easily broken.

Just type in "psu switch" and it is the very first item that comes up and the second item is the single packs. This is my experience from the american site.

The bitmain ones are pretty solid with their design. It uses a decent amount of PCB which is nice to hold it all together.

I have used paperclip's if I did not have a switch.   If you do make sure to use electrical tape to make it stay in.  I would wrap it with some electrical tape, and never did have an issue.

I found and ordered the Bitmain one on Amazon. Right now I am using a paperclip/electrical tape. Having the ability to turn off the miner will be nice. My PSU has a switch, so I could just use that switch, but I have heard that PSU's last longer if they are not disconnected from power completely. I believe that the hard switch on the PSU itself removes power completely, like unplugging it. I may be wrong, but for $5 it will be great to have both options.

I have never heard that but the switch is very nice if you have to power off a couple of units before leaving home or something, that's what I do.

I would agree that one is sexy.   It's like they took the EVGA one that ships with high end ATX psu's and improved it with a switch.

How much does that one cost?

Honestly I prefer the bitmain, just do to it looking like a higher quality build and hard to break, I would hate one of these breaking and not having a back up.

The thing I dislike about the Bitmain version is the exposed solder joints on the back. I wonder if they can short if they touch something conductive. Either way though, I will have the Bitmain version that I ordered and Cablez version.

I would agree bitmain have a beautiful switch.   But if I could design it I would have no exposed joints. 

I have my cords pretty organized, but if that would ever hit metal on back it would not be good.

Quick question - do you need to use some electrical tape to make sure it does not slip off the PSU connector? Or does it use the latch that is on the connector? It looks like some of them latch and some do not.
