    Hi all,

    Electus distribution have the RD3480 light dependant resistor for around $1
    in large quantities, but I would assume these should be around the 20 cent
    or less mark.

    I am after about a thousand of them. Any leads for suppliers?
    I usually buy from futurlec but they don't stock these.

  2. Altronics have the Z1619 for around $0.14 ea in bulk lot (50+)
    Not sure if it's the same spec though.

    Even Farnell have them for $0.89ea in 1000 lot (316-8335)

    Dave :)

    Thanks for the lead. David.

    Spec is not too critical. Should be fine.
  4. Nope, just got a quote back from Altronics. They want $0.60 per unit. for
    1400 units. Any more ideas? Surely I should find something for around 20c
    each. After all they are used in kids toys all the time.

    You are correct Phil. Dave has made an error - the price you are
    checking Dave is the "price per 10" for 50 pcs = $7.10+ gst - it is
    *not* $7.10 for 50 pcs! I have been caught out by this before and
    thought I was getting an exceptionally good price - unfortunately there
    is still no such thing as a free lunch!

  6. Oops, you are right, sorry about that Phil!
    The wholesale price list is a tad confusing.

    Dave :)
