    Default Power supply prices going up?

    Here is what I recently got in e-mail from circuit specialists

    Special Announcement SAVE 25% TODAY
    Because of new tariffs going into effect in July, some of our products will be affected by a 25% price increase. If you buy any Soldering Equipment or Stepper Motors in July you will avoid this 25% increase. Please note that this is not a price reduction, but rather a pre-tariff price.

    Are power supply prices also going up?

    He has nothing to do with that.

    Jon mentioned that in some other Thrad, that the Cap/MOSFET Shortage because of Electric Cars is the Cause for that shit.

    He acts as he is very close :P
    Personal dislike aside it was a just a guess based on his new tariffs for China imported goods.

    Wow, I didn't even think of that as a side effect.

    But wait, how many caps go into each electric vehicle (on average/guesstimate) and how many electric vehicles are expected to be manufactured? Maybe the car manufacturers are stockpiling?

    Hard to really imagine, cheap smd's should be very plentifully, and even in theory it's better than Electrolytic's the handful that still get used anyways and that's long been being phased out more. And there has been plenty of cheap mosfets too. Should be no shortage.

    Sounds like a bunch of marketing bullshit UNLESS these items are made in the U.S. There are a number of components with price increases. Not many finished goods made over seas, however.

    And that's what's really STUPID about the new tariffs is that a lot of stuff required to build things in the U.S. are taxed. PCB's, wire, etc. yet there are still a lot of FINISHED GOODS not taxed.

    For example: Corsair's individually sleeved cables are not taxed. But because teflon, copper, etc. is, the material a friend of mine uses to make cables here in the U.S. have gone up 25%.

    What the actual fuck?

    Wrong.

    The SMD products, especially MLCC, are actually in the greatest shortage.

    I think you've over simplified in your mind how components are made.
