Extremely cheap. Have four in my engine bay, including one from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid and three hooked up to the headlights/parking lights. Have been working for a few months now, even during the cold winter. Great value..so I bought twenty.

These relays are the full units with norm open and norm closed contact, not those that have one pin cut off. The price was incredible, and shipment was fast.

First, the price is certainly a deciding factor on this relay. Many people seem to have had success with these, but unfortunately mine failed very quickly. Utilizing it in the dashboard for a switching control, the relay wasn't subjected to any weather (except perhaps the normal high temperatures encountered in a car sitting in a parking lot!). The relay failed after a few weeks of use.

Other observations, the case is built cheaply and doesn't seal at all. If the relay is mounted by the tab, the wires alone will cause the clip-in bottom component to wiggle with more play than I would normally be comfortable with. I don't believe there is much resistance to dust give then flex between the case cap and the bottom component where the wires are connected.

My 2 cents, you can probably find a better relay elsewhere. It worked great while it was working and never got warm to the touch.

For the price, this is a good value. However, if you need something that will be subject to external stresses--shake, rattle, roll, dust, very high or low temps, high humidity--this is not appropriate. Otherwise, go for it!

I used a few of these for my car alarm installation and they did the trick.

Even though others have had only a percentage of these work for them, i thought i'd gamble. i only needed one, but i purchased two in case one didn't work. Neither of them worked. i found an old relay that worked intermittently (kept it for situations like this), put it in and it worked. That's how i know both of the Absolute relays didn't function straight out of the box. Stay away! you get what you pay for.

I bought this relay to tie into my Viper alarm - it can now remotely turn the rear defogger on from up to a mile away. This relay works fine for the job.

These can be disassembled with a fingernail to see the guts, and it is easy to see that the main contacts inside neither align very well nor have much surface area to pass the current.

I used them on my Headlight harness. They have not seen much use, and they have not failed, but I have little confidence in them. Thankfully when relay's fail they usually fail with welded contacts, so at least the headlamps would not go out on a dark night. But my sealed headlamps are 6054's which have both high and low beams inside. If the high beam relay failed and stayed connected while the low beam was activated or Vis a versa, it would likely fry the headlamp, requiring replacement of the lamp at an inopportune time.

These relays only have one switched output terminal(87). Some relays have two which would make wiring some projects easier. Anyway do your research. I am looking for a higher quality relay to plug into my headlamp harness.

These do the job, but for how long, even at a fraction of their rating, is the question, and safety of myself and others could be at stake. Other products by this company, specifically a 140 amp circuit breaker I have, do not fill me with confidence as to their build quality or functionality.
