I'm looking to source 10x 1-3ft standard US laptop power cords (NEMA 5-15 to C5) for a project; then will require an ongoing supply of at leasts approx 10 per month.

Currently looking at Amazon unless I can find a local supplier.

Most any NZ cable supplier could source them for you. But they will practically give them away on Amazon, but order direct from a reputable US supplier for best results. I will also bet that someone is parallel importing laptops or something and bins 10's per month of these for nz cables. Actually I know this happens even at major official importers from time to time so maybe someone here will pm.

Aliexpress will beat amazon on price and also will most likely have free shipping.

 

 

Dealextreme will do the same but with the chance of a better discount for quantity.

 

 

The people selling on amazon will most likely be importing from aliexpress and then adding a markup and charging for onward shipping.

You can get them from Element14 for NZ$6.15 + GST, freight is free for orders over $45 + GST so if you're ordering ten at a time there will be free freight every time.

You can probably also get them from RS Components and probably cheaper but their website was proving difficult to use and their delivery is slower than Element 14.
