  • THESE CANNOT switch 8 Amps without a VERY large heatsink! 20x20cm! Read the derating curves on page 6 of the datasheet or you will let the smoke out. We’ve done it before at work.

  • I too would have preferred the professionalism, and finality of a “sorry, you are not a winner.” At least then I feel like it was still recognized that I took part and had an honest chance. Frustrating untold customers and potential customers is bad for business. Whether any of us has the right to be upset makes absolutely no difference. This happened before both with hackaday and with woot.com [according to the Make sparkfun aftermath article], it sounds great, but it isn’t.

No public wish lists :(
