    I need a 16v 220uF Capacitor. Anyone know where I can find one online?

    Digikey lists three if you do the search.

    They do... Unfortunately, minimum order is $2000.

    I only need ~5.

    Do you really expect to find a vendor who has no minimum order and no
    outrageous charges for small orders?

    I wouldn't.

    Bull droppings!

    There is a $6.00 handling charge for over seas paperwork, plus
    shipping. A $5.00 charge is the order id less that #25.00

    Those Caps are more than that, so only the $6 and shipping apply.

    I do business with Digikey all the time, never had any problem nor
    a minimum order! (My buys for prototypes are usually about
    $200.00 and they are prompt to ship.

  9. Where do you see that?

    I found 4019PHCT-NT at $0.47, minimum order 1. However, you can buy
    the same part in a box or reel, where the minimum order is 500 (but
    they are only $0.22 that way).

    Digikey's minimum order is US$25, I believe. I suspect that any
    online supplier will have a minimum order value, as it simply is not
    economic to process an order for $2.50 worth of parts.

    Most have minimum orders.

    http://www.allelectronics.com

    has no mimimum but a $6 fixed S/H charge on all orders.

    Try www.mouser.com . No minimum and generally good prices and
    service. Or just stop in a Radio Shack and pay more than you could
    have bought them mailorder&shipped.

    You can try www.radioshack.com. They re-pack the capacitor and sell at
    a relative high price, but it is convenient somehow.

    ??????? $2000 min order? Where did that come from?

    I've done three $25ish orders in the last few weeks (it's amazing how
    many ways I can find to blow up the same mos-fet driver, but that's a
    different story..)

    BTW, my $25+ orders were just so I wouldn't get hit with "HUGE" $5
    surcharge on orders less than $25


    BTW, Quick search at www.digikey.com for "220uF 16v" gives a bunch of
    options. For instance (all with single unit min orders)

    Two different Tantalum caps starting at $9.91

    One specialty Polymer cap @ $3.08

    Nine electrolytic caps starting @ $0.35

    BTW, if your in the US, USPS Priority is cheaper than UPS ground, and
    a whole heck of a lot faster (two days in my case)


    Take Care,

    They're as common as dog doo-doo at websites such as Mouser and
    Digi-Key.
    We all wish you'd "Chase after" your parts "like hell" by doing a simple
    google search for them.
     
  16. There are dozens if not hundreds of vendors on Ebay who'll do that for
    you. Norm, you're just not looking in the right places. ;-)

    BTW, I wish these clueless ISPs that allow you people to post to
    nonexistent newsgroups such as sci.electronics would get a clue. That
    newsgroup was removed and replaced by the current sci.electronics.*
    structure 6 or more years ago. It shouldn't _be_ there.
     
  17. The vendors on Ebay don't seem to think that's true. They'll sell you a
    few bucks of parts and ship 'em for a couple dollars.

    And there are plenty of vendors there that are from the UK, judging by
    the number of prices that are listed in GBP.
     
  18. We've propably got some 220/16V radials on the shelf here or at work, if the OP
    gives me a mailing address I'll throw some in a jiffy bag for free, but he'll
    have to pay the airmail postage.

    We have a couple of million resistors and capacitors of all types in the
    workshop downstairs, I'll have to make up a list so I can get them moved on,
    they take up a LOT of room! Elco's we don't hold on to, only ceramics, poly and
    some of the high-range Tant's.

    As far as the web interface goes, I picked the cap I wanted, and entered a
    quantity of "5". It wouldn't let me proceed, until I entered a quantity
    of 2000.

    Perhaps there are ways around this, but the web interface was quite clear.
