Where to buy SMD components in Europe?

digikey and mouser have too expensive shipping to Sweden, 20-30$, I’m only buying aroud 10-20$ worth of components (for nanjg105c 22mm edition for Ultrafire F13)

Where do Europeans buy components?

Cpc is the only reasonable price free shipping big store I know of in the UK, not sure about international shipping tho. Just had a quick look but couldn’t see any info, they have recently introduced £5 minimum order grr.

I don’t have any Euro leads, but here’s my thoughts anyway ;-).

I think all the parts needed for that driver can be stripped from a Nanjg 105c. That may be your cheapest option if you’re only doing one or two drivers. Several places offer the extra AMC7135 chips you need to get whatever drive current you want.

From FT in China:
6* AMC7135 4-Group 2~5 Modes LED Flashlight Driver Circuit (Nanjg 105c)
AMC7135 350mA Advanced Current Regulators – SOT-89 (10-Pack)
Between those two things you should have all components you need for an ontime firmware with up to 16*7135. If you are flashing an offtime firmware you can pickup a 1uF 0805 cap through eBay or FT for very little money.

From RMM (MtnElectronics) in USA (he ships internationally at a fair price I’m told):
FET Driver DIY Parts Kit – 17mm, 20mm, 22mm
AMC7135 350mA SOT-89 (5-Pack) or AMC7135 380mA SOT-89 (5-Pack)
Note that A) Those are 5-packs. B) You won’t use the FET. C) You get to choose a pre-flashed firmware and offtime capacitor when you order the parts kit.

Still fine, still on a break. One day I’ll catch up with you folks! previous wight catchup Wink

Farnell normally have better shipping prices than Mouser and Digikey. Not as great a range, and prices can be slightly higher (but sometimes cheaper).

thanks everybody. I tried to register with Farnell but I couldnt finish the registration as it seemed to ask for company details, and I’d like to order as a private person.

It seems my cheapest option is to strip nanjg105c, which is what I’ll do.

I have been looking all day for somewhere to get them in the UK. Hard work. Cpc don’t have the one/size I need (R200)

Just put N/A for company name. I'm not a company and I order from them all the time.

I’ve ordered a couple times from TME.eu . Pretty good selection of components and reasonably priced (7.9€ to Finland) DHL/UPS shipping.

Idk how they keep up price-wise but reichelt (http://www.reichelt.de/Components-active/2/index.html?&ACTION=2&LA=2&GROUPID=2877&START=0&OFFSET=16&SHOW=1) ships to sweden or finland for 10€ (<10kg weight).

Conrad only ships to German customers, at least via their online shop. They’re also more expensive in general.

It is a pain to search it, but I bought some smd resistors and caps cheap from chinese sellers on ebay. Conrad is indeed expensive. Occasionally I can buy from rsonline via work.
