Recommend a Heavy Duty Battery Switch Please

As title,

The Opti has taken several attempts to start from cold last few days. Once started running /restarting fine as usual.

Running pair of fairly recent Optima Blue Tops as well as a new alternator....cables good, so am going to swap out the old battery switch as it is a possible culprit (unless anyone has any other suggestion).

Can anyone recommend a good switch /what they use?

Thanks, Dan

Hello chaps
I am thinking of fitting a quick connection battery terminal to the live side. Is there any danger to the engine management system or other electrics with spiking or surging?
cheers
RR
