I couldn't find a thread with shops recommendations. So,
anyone got some online shops to recommend?

sparkfun.com & adafruit I already know about.

There is a good list of suppliers here: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Buy

And a more extensive list of suppliers of components and things here:


I've just bought a few bits from seeedstudio.com and would recommend them!


mem: oh, hehe.

Easty: Yep, like that shop. Also ordered me some stuff :)

I ordered my board in http://coolcomponents.co.uk and I am pleased with quality of service.


I am looking for a supplier that can provide SMD capacitors and resistors in 0603 and where shipping doesn't cost you an arm and a leg.

Shipping from Mouser and Digikey seems to be quite expensive for a box weighing less than 100 gram.

Anyone that can recommend a shop/supplier?


I will say NOT to go with littlebird electronics as it took 3 1/2 weeks for my arduino to arrive


jds, you mean like this: http://www.sureelectronics.net/goods.php?id=598

sureelectronics.net is pretty good, ~1 week shipping to UK.



Thanks Zitron, I will have a closer look to their website. You linked to resistors, I also need caps.

btw, Do you also post on rcgroups? I think I recognize your name from there.


I just bought lots of 0805 resistors+capacitors from ebay, I think about 3000pcs for 10USD. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SMD-0805-50-Value-Resistor-32-Value-Capacitor-Kit_W0QQitemZ250348635921QQihZ015QQcategoryZ4664QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262

Has anyone been buying xbee modules and could tell me if there is any place on earth, where they are not so pricey? The best price I got was here: (if link doesn't work - you just choofe "farnel export" and copy/paste the link again, or just search for xbee)

jds, yeah I also like RC planes  :)

Asia Engineer (ebay Shop posted by Odisej) also seems pretty good, I've been tempted to buy some stuff from them but have not yet actually bought anything so I can't comment on them...


haven't ordered yet, but i found this shop cheap and they offer many parts starting from one piece, where other shops only sell by 100. maybe worth to check it out.



I like to shop on Futurlec
It's one of the rare shop that can provide some "rare" parts, SMD parts (including caps & res) and ship for as low as 4$, even to Europe.... And they have a small 8x8 led matrix, with "square LEDs"... Nice ^^


Thanks Melka,

i only found smd resitors that they sell in reels of 5000 pcs, also only 0805. I am looking for 0603 smd resitors and caps, available in single pieces.



Segor, or RS-Components, get most from my parts there  :)
