Component price increases

Post by alenppc »

Just a heads up. I noticed that Mouser has increased their price of MCA connectors by about 50%, the CF card adapters have also gone up in price in China, plus there were various other minor increases such as CPLD costs by Digikey.

This means I will probably have to slightly raise the price of sets sold on Amibay as a result once I have to restock. Sorry guys...

I've noticed China prices sky-rocket over the past few months. Some chips went from like £1-£2 to £8-£15.. I've been buying stocks of stuff before it gets any worse.

I tend to avoid china for chips. Sockets yes. They cant screw those up.

If i thought there was a massive market for them i'd buy a batch of the AMP connectors. But i've not broken even on the KEL connectors yet. The prices of those have plummeted due to me. If I was a "bar steward" i'd withdraw them from sale and sit on the remaining stock for year or two.

After they instated VAT and import fee on purchases no matter what price, then I have stopped buying anything from outside the EU. I was lucky to get the last bit's and pieces for my ATX-64 build, 14 days or so, before the VAT and import fee were instated fully.
