    Anyway back to the problem at hand, it is whats bad for Spark Fun is bad for us !!!!! They scour the earth for the best value parts and make them available. It's a shame we are all caught up in this mess.

  • Changing vendors/manufacturers is a pain and expensive. Sometimes you get to go back through the validation process. Then if it is severe enough of a change and the product has agency labeling requirements, the agency may require that the product is reviewed again by them as a new product.

  • Don't forget your Fellow Americans who slapped with you a Tariff Collection Fee! That's one the government didn't see coming, so the real damage is (Tariff+ Tariff Collection Fee's) . Okay so, it's not a massive amount, but it's by no means free!

No public wish lists :(
