SPDT mini toggle switches

I am using 1 of these to split my coils. The 1 I have is an on/on and is rated @ 6 A 125VAC/ 3 A 250VAC. Now I was looking into buying more (I need 7 more) but in my searching I have found these come also in on/off and with different ratings. Would on/off be better and do the ratings really matter for coil splitting? I have a basic understanding of wiring guitars but when it comes to ratings etc, I haven't a clue lol. Thanks in advance - Dann

Re: SPDT mini toggle switches

on-on can be used as on-off, so you'd be better off with on-on, just in case u need it to do more complicated stuff.

rating doesn't matter, current within the guitar is so low it doesn't really matter what you use.
