Where on earth are the micro deans in the east?

One and half hour trying to locate a vendor in Hong Kong that stocks micro deans connectors. No luck.

Can you help? I'm in Taiwan. I don't want to use Ebay or purchase from the US. Ebay doesn't work in Taiwan, by the way. I need a vendor from HK or China that stocks the tiny connectors.

Regards,

Chris

this place has a lot of stuff but, their search engine is pretty tough

http://s.dealextreme.com/search/connectors

Here is an extensive listing of many vendors. You'll have to go through and see which is in China/Hong Kong

Some links may not work..

Thanks a bunch, Chap, but the M deans aren't listed on that website, either.

Well, try going through that vendor spread sheet. Meanwhile I'll keep searching. I'll try and reach my Bud. I'll send him the thread link. I call him the "search king." LOL.

Cheers, Mike. Worse case scenario I'll have to order from the US. Shipping costs more than the connectors themselves, though, so that's why I'd like to find a better options closer to me. Maybe Wowhobbies would be kind enough to just send an envelope via regular air mail. Maybe I will contact them to inquire.

Chris

Chris, it sounds like this is an emergency. If you can hold off a bit we'll come up with something. I know, shipping sucks. Many of us here in the states are faced with the same thing getting stuff from China. I never thought the tables would turn

These are the ones, but if you look closer, you'll see that I'd have to buy 500 of them to place an order... I'm afraid that's beyond my needs and my budget.
