Case is Flimsy, Failed Quickly
on June 13, 2011
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.
