Looking For Input For Relays?

I need to find a source for relays that folks have used. I looked up a few of the posts but unsure of a source for tested and working relays from say, Amazon. If anyone is using a relay and can chime in with a particular make and model would be great. I'm using an ezb to turn on and off 12v motors?

Hi Will,

I've used Fotek solid state relays in the past, they've been pretty reliable in my experience. I like solid state relays much better than the standard electromagnetic relays.  The contacts inside electromagnetic relays can wear out and fuse over time and they always make a racket when rapidly switching. I like how silent solid state relays are, and they have no moving (mechanical) parts.

Thanks Jer..that’s what I needed!
