What is a Rocker Switch?

A rocker switch is an on/off electronic switch that rocks (rather than trips) when pressed. This means that one side of the electric rocker switch is raised while the other side is depressed much like a seesaw or a rocking horse. An electronic rocker switch may have a circle (for "on") on one end and a horizontal dash or line (for "off") on the other to indicate if the device is on or off.
