Source for JST3AA connectors?


#1

Surely there must be someone who sells the JST3AA connector for less than $1 each. I searched Frys, Sparkfun and Digi-key and they don’t seem to carry them.

Where do you get the darn things?

About 1/2 down. They are listed at $1/each. Perhaps they can work out a deal depending on volume.

You can get them at sparkfun.

You can get discount too.

Those are the JST2AA (two-pin versions), but yeah, they have 'em :slight_smile:

I’m not sure what the deal on those connectors is… GHI said they were a contributing factor to the price of the expansion board, but in quantity they’re like 4-8 cents a piece. SparkFun has quite the markup on those.


#5

The Sparkfun connectors are 2 pin not 3 pin. A $1 just seems high to me. Probably a patent license fee or something makes them expensive.

Thanks … I’ll just buy them from GHI when I need em.

Vertical is not sold by sparkfun.

Maybe farnell has them :wink:

On 10+ you get 14 cents.

Which connector is it? The PH-series, right?
