DC switches should be snap-action to reduce the possibility of arcing. AC switches need not be, because AC arcs are self-extinguishing after a sixtieth of second. My suggestion would be to avoid the soft-action quiet switches that are popular these days in homes, and instead choose something with a pronounced click. Better yet, use a switch intended for DC loads. Cole-Hersee makes a wide selection of suitable toggle and rocker switches.
