Hi, I'm getting parts for my DM65PIC board, does anybody have the exact part number for the on/off switch (S1) and the battery holder ?

When I'm done I will share my project on mouser website to make it easier for others.

Hi Kuba,

sy, i was sick the last couple of days.
It looks like the M.E.G.A Team planned on using a Battery with crimped on holder.
something like this:
I did not find a seperate holder, that would fit. so what i have done, i have bought this holder:
and soldered a wire which has the size of the 2 "+" Pins onto the cut-off original one.
Now i have a holder, that fits perfectly.
It's sad, that we cannot share pictures, otherwise i would have shown you my solution.

And for the switch, i went for an ALPS:
This was the only one, close enough. I had to clip away the 2 pins you normaly use to solder the switchcasing onto the pcb, because they didn't fit, but from switchlogic and the soldergrid it fits.

If you find a better switch, or battery holder let me know. Also, what i didn't find were knobs for the switch....
