A good electrical switch should effectively connect and disconnect electrical supply.
Single Pole switch disconnects live supply, whilst Double Pole switch disconnects both live and neutral supply.
According to testing standard - BS1363, the switch must withstand without excessive wear or other harmful after 15,000 times on/off operations.
Assuming one on/off operation every morning, and another on/off operation every night, 15,000 times operations is equivalent to 20years
An ASTA approved switch and socket will guarantee this.
