*Best* relay available for the V11 is the High-Current OMRON G8HE-1C7T-R-DC12 Available here (as of August 2020): https://www.onlinecomponents.com/omron-electronics/g8he1c7trdc12-42670683.ht

Dear me and for goodness sake. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but at this point in our well developed knowledge base and reliable testing of these simple units, why would anyone choose to run cheap

onlinecomponenets is a reliable source and, yes, the OMRON High Current relays are not expensive.

The description in the ebay ad is mostly good. I question the NO/NC current ratings (not shown) and would rather see a view of the information on the top of the relay.

Interesting to see the full size contact blades. The standard G8HE has the smaller blades throughout. Perhaps this is the "1" after the "R" in the model number?

Thanks for your input, docc. I ordered Omrons from eBay last winter and swapped all five a few weeks ago. Is there any chance to verify the quality without tearing one apart?

I received my 10 Omrons from Online Components two weeks ago. See attached, they say Made In USA, and work fine. Perhaps they can sell cheaper due to volume (min 10 per order).

Anyway, if anyone is interested in the other 5 I now have, will ship to the lower 48 for $20.
