Hi there - I'm looking at making my own magnetic breakaway connector using pogo pins and magnets.
I'm looking to see what pogo pins are available. Digi-Key doesn't seem to sell any - they only seem to sell some really expensive pin headers with built in pogo pins.
So - any suggestions as to where to get these? Ebay looks like a pretty good source - at less than $0.50 each in some places. I do worry about not being able to source the same part again in the future, however.
Also, there are all sorts of different tip styles. Any suggestions as to what tip styles are good for what? I'm planning on using them as part of a magnetic break-away connector. They need to carry a couple amps.
