I will sell the extras for $1.40 each + $5 for shipping. That will cover
my cost of the caps and the mailing costs more or less. However, I will
have ~320 and Chip wants 180 and I will probably keep about 50 to fix my
EMMC if I kill it. So that only leaves about 80 extra for three months :-(
Chip may want to keep some extras too if a string blows or something so we
really won't have many extras for the immediate future. When the other 700
come in I will sell them off in any quantity at the above price but till
then looks like they will be pretty rare :-( DigiKey still has 2200 of the
47nF is stock but you don't get quite as much bang for the buck with them.
I called around to the other places with these particular caps and they
were all worse than DigiKey. Some went to lead times of 6 months! Of
course, the Panasonic caps are not the only game in town and now that they
are getting scarce other sources may be needed...
