Sounds like an idea. Except from the less comfortability of having to hold
your hand grasping something. Have to find a switch that fit my hand, and
that does not require a whole lot of pressure, so as to keep it activated.
But, where do you get the plug that fits into the dc jack. Have looked in
some electronic stores, but they only provide the ones with a higher
diameter. Any suggestions? Thanks!
