Not just amps - but a toggle simply shouldn't be expected to handle the arc of the connect and disconnect - over time the toggle's contacts will burnish and carbonize... the reduced risk of failure on the trail (and we all know stuff somehow knows exactly when to fail causing the most problems) justifies the cost of the relay.
