Recommend dealing with this company (my favourite)

Have been buying since 2019 (4 years) and they were my preferred supplier.
The most important thing for any small business (in my opinion ... having been in business myself over 30 years) is how they respond when something doesn't go right.
Full props to Graham and his team.
Very client-oriented and satisfying. Show details

Passable, 2.5 stars

I've placed half a dozen orders through these guys over the past two years and they have been very hit and miss in my experience. So buyer beware. They do have a fairly comprehensive range of items (and seem to have things in stock when other places do not). Their prices are reasonable which is also good. They do an excellent job of packaging for postage as well. My issue with these guys is that they do not seem to take responsibility for the products that they sell. Some are absolute garbage in my experience. Show details

Good deal, very prompt delivery

I got a bunch of things including a starter kit. I ordered very late at night but was surprised when the courier came the next day! Everything was packed securely and worked well. One of the few places that could quickly deliver an RPi Zero 2 W and at a reasonable price within Australia. Show details

Raspberry Pis in stock with fast delivery

Ordered on a Saturday, delivered on the Tuesday. Price was fantastic and the custom PI 3A+ case they sold is really good value and well put together. Will use again. Show details

Good service

Order dispatched promptly, recieved in good condition. Followed up on order by email. They answer questions about purchases on their site. The only complaint I have is they wanted a review but that's okay I guess, helps others buy from good shops. Show details

Great connectors

Was after some waterproof DC connectors that I had trouble finding for a project and Core electronics had exactly what I needed and arrived 2 days after ordering. The connectors were good quality and reasonably priced along with reasonable shipping rates. Show details

Prompt Delivery Good Quality Product

I purchased one of the USB Endoscope Camera
It works quite well.
The free USB Endoscope App was limited resolution and to get the 'Pro' version upgrade to get full HD resolution cost $10
It also worked with the Windows10 Camera App Show details

Do you sell either a 6volt 4 watt power adaptor 240 volts or a device that alters current so that I can get that output
