Component Shopping Made Simple

  • By: Parallax Insider Published: 22 May, 2014 0 comments

Recently, you may have noticed some changes to the offerings in the Parallax web store. Specifically, we’ve been combining sales of individual components into component packs, including resistors, capacitors, hardware and LEDs.

You may be thinking to yourself, “Well hold your horses, Parallax! I really liked spending $0.15 on a single resistor and $0.50 on a small 4-40 screw! What’s with this component pack nonsense?”

However, dear customer, our goal at Parallax is to make your shopping experience as easy as possible. To us, there’s no need for you to spend time fretting over whether you need the 1/4" or 3/8" screw, or the 1 kΩ or 10 kΩ resistor. Instead, you can buy a single, inexpensive pack of components that you know will cover your every need.

Each pack contains all of the components used frequently in our educational kits. So it’s great for classroom replenishment as well, since teachers will have a variety of replacement parts for anything that goes missing or walks away.

Component shopping made simple. That’s what we’re going for.
