Talking Found 68000uF 50V for $5 each, $0.33 relays

I found some 68000uF 50V caps for $5 each at BG Micro. They are $4 each for 3 or more or $110 for a case of 36. It is # CAP1090. I ordered 3.

http://bgm.bgmicro.com/prodinfo.asp?...ap1090&stype=3

There are also some dirt cheap relays for $0.33 each. They are 5V coil SPST reed relays. Part #1037 I bought 15 for a non audio project.

http://bgm.bgmicro.com/prodinfo.asp?...ri=REL&stype=2

They also have a few good heatsinks.

is this the forum to post stuff like hot deals? i had posted my find in the parts section. i got some of the parts yesterday, the 10uF caps i got 20/$1 are made by sprague, and i got $3 worth. the leads are attracted to magnets, if that matters for stuff not in the signal path? in any case, i just like the cheapness of the 10uF caps and the 100nF mono caps (30/$1). and now they have some low noise quad op amps 4/$1. they sell that relay there as well, but i think it's $1 each.

have you ever gotten anything from bgm? i like hot deals, but don't know what deals they've got.

I have ordered from them a few times, and everything has been fine. Their catalog is worth getting.

Are you sure they are the real deal? I hope they are not but they look like fakes to me.
I have seen these somewhere else before, I think it was the MIT fleamarket. Handling the caps they felt very light. A real cap of these dimensions should weigh a pound.
Usually united chemicon and pretty much all cap manifacturer etch the value on the outer plastic cover, don't print it.

I will post more when I get them. I only spent $12 so it is not like it really matters. I think it is worth the gamble.

Default Caps at BG Micro

These are the real thing, they came out of Lambda the
power supply maker and I bought 1000 of them and
with freight from back east paid more than they did,
Over what there selling a box of 36 for....................
There price is a killer price and they won't last long.
They are packed in Nippon Chemi-Con boxes and
some have Lamba sealing tape on them. I've priced
mine at $5.95ea. Jest goes to show I can't beat
everyones prices.... I do have other caps also coming in
and will post later on this board what they are when
everything is in stock.

I just called them and there is only 18 in stock. More is coming this week. I ordered a case. (When the price of caps is getting down to the price of beer, I order by cases).

Steve,
The proof is in the pudding. I am not a big expert on how caps are put together but it should involve thin aluminum foil tightly wrapped with dielectric. A cap like that should weight about as much as a piece of 3 in diameter by 4 inch long and 3/6 in wall Al tubing. Could you tell me how much does each cap weight? If they really are good I may buy some.
According to UCC datasheet the U32D should weigh ~326grams or .72 lb.
