Mini-Group-Buy: Vishay-Roederstein MKP1837 bypass capacitors

Forum Moderators: please move to an appropriate place...

I am organizing a mini-group-buy for Vishay-Roederstein MKP1837 capacitors. This are not readily available here in the US and the source I've used in the past is going through Newark which charges a fee as they then turn around and source the parts from Farnell. With the plunging dollar, this method will be cheaper than ordering direct from Farnell and having an overseas friend forward the parts my way.

Here are the available values and prices per piece:

0.010uF/160V $0.512
0.015uF/160V $0.522
0.022uF/160V $0.533
0.033uF/160V $1.290
0.047uF/160V $0.631
0.068uF/160V $0.704
0.100uF/160V $0.796

Price breaks are at 250 per value. If we get close to these numbers, I'll let everyone know and we can re-ante up then.

Here are a few references:

http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/75260.pdf

At the moment, I will be requiring a $25 minimum order. The $15 handling fee as well as the shipping from Newark to me will be divided among the participants. Then figure a few bucks for shipping via USPS to your house. Then there is PayPal fees.... I will most likely do a two stage payment, so to start all you'll be responsible is for your "kit" :)

I have dealt with a number of people on this forum, and I'm sure they would be willing to vouch for me. I can provide additional references outside of this forum if need be as well.

I will be keeping this group buy open for a week, as I have already collected some money and don't want to keep people waiting. If we get close to the 250 price break, I may extend the group buy to see if we can hit that target and save people some money.

Thank you and don't hesitate to contact me!

I pm'd you about this a while back and didn't hear a reply and then lost the thread. I would be in for 50 of the .01mF

Did you note that these are actually a different model than Tony Gee talks about on his site? These are 160V and the ones he uses are 100V. I don't know that that will make a difference, but there it is.

The capacitors are rated to 160 VDC / 100 VAC. I'm sure he's quoting the 100 VAC number.
 
Hi,

Please add me to the list.

I need:

20 of the 0.010uF/160V @ $0.512 = $10.24

12 of the 0.022uF/160V @ $0.533 = $6.40

12 of the 0.047uF/160V @ $0.631 = $7.57

20 of the 0.100uF/160V @ $0.796 = $15.92

64 pieces for $40.13 plus shipping, handling and PayPal.

Thank you for doing this. I was wondering how to get these in small amounts!

Regards//Keith

on the 0.1uF and 0.01uF values, which are the most popular, we'll need to hit 188 then I can order 250 for the same price :D I will distribute the "free" devices in proportion to everyone's order, assuming the total ordered is less than 250. If we're at 250+ then I can apply the difference towards your shipping.

At the moment, we're at:

(150) 0.01uF
(90) 0.1uF
 
OK,

I will add 4 more of each 0.1 and 0.01. I know it isn't much but hopefully it will help!

I NOW need:

24 of the 0.010uF/160V @ $0.512 = $12.29

12 of the 0.022uF/160V @ $0.533 = $6.40

12 of the 0.047uF/160V @ $0.631 = $7.57

24 of the 0.100uF/160V @ $0.796 = $19.10

72 pieces for $45.36 plus shipping, handling and PayPal.

Payment using the PayPal formula will be sent in a few minutes!

Thanks!
