This is my preferred lighted switch: Astrolux SC/SS/S2/S3 BLF X5/X6 Flashlight 2LED Lighting Switch For DIY.

I like that it has a double spring, but cannot guarantee that it’ll work with your flashlight. For that, you’ll have to refer to the following BLF post: D.I.Y. Illuminated tailcap.

You may have to add a bleeder resistor to the driver in order for the functions to work. But once you figure it out, it’s worth the effort.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Sorry bwl123, but I thought I read you were looking for a lighted switch. Unloco recommendation looks good for an original replacement.
