Default Is this a good choice switch for my setup?

For my sig rascal 40 EP conversion having a 5sa123 pack, no bec , 70 A esc , Brushless Outrunner OK-C4250 (3520) KV 600, 4 servos ,Futaba 6exa radio system .

I have a nicd 4.8v 1000mah battery for its Receiver. There is a switch with 3 leads: The battery , The Rx, Then the charge lead. I want to replace that switch with a type that has the charge pin built in the switch itself , like this Eg:

So I bought it ! Just tell me is this too heavy duty for this setup.
Is this a good choice? Just wanna confirm since the switch didnt come with Amp ratings or any power/Volts info and don't wanna create undo drop in "V" if it is ONLY for big Rx batteries!

Actually, the heavier-duty the switch, the LESS drop in "V."

If you've got the space and can take the weight, that is an excellent switch. I like them because you can cut one larger hole instead of one small hole, two smaller holes, a second small hole, and two more small holes to mount a conventional switch and an Ernst charge jack.
