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. thanks! D #### David L.

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.

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! Andy D #### David L.

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