    Default Electronic component supplier in George?

    Is there a place in George that sells electronic components like resistors, capacitors, transistors etc. ? I'm guessing not...

    I am not sure if they still are trading via a store, but Vicom Electronics did stock components. Also, off the cuff the electronic store corner Market and Mitchell should also have (can't recall name at the mo).

    Hmmmm how about an AP Electronics or Dessels. Besides components, AP (Alan Pon) Electronics used to run a small shop in Jhb which used to stock all the kits advertised in Elektor, Popular Electronics, Everday Electronics and other popular magazines.

    Viacom is really the only choice, but they carry a fairly limited range.
    Eagle electronics in Cape Town is often on our todo list when visiting CT.

    OK, thanks for all the replies. I wanted to get a S8050 compatible NPN switching transistor for my DVD's remote control, but it turned out not to be necessary in the end (the transistor just had a broken lead, it wasn't actually blown). I normally order electronic parts from electronics123 or communica, but I didn't want to wait that long or pay the shipping cost for a few cent transistor.

    Awesome! Just this morning I needed a 330nF mica capacitor... luckily I had a 220nF and 100nF ceramics lying around, those two in parallel were close enough.
