    I have a 3.3v power source powering my project and I want to put a switch in between it to act as an on off switch.

    Every kind of toggle switch I can find is rated at 12v or higher. Can I still use this or do I need something else?

    What kind of thing would be suitable for an on / off switch for a 3.3v project?

    Thanks

    The switch rating gives the maximum the switch can handle. If a switch can handle 12V, it can handle 3.3V, too.
