How do you set up a power switch on a breadboard? Answered
I figured you just run the battery's ground to ground, then have the positive from the battery in a row on the board, then you would switch this to your rail. The problem is that the battery got HOT as hell in a minute, so I must be doing something wrong. Took a peek at another device and it looks like the switch is actually switching ground... what do I do?
My switch is a little vertical slider switch that has two positions, and three leads represented by black, red, then green wires.
