Brent's Bits $2 Day Is Here Again!

1340

Hey folks, me again, the $2 day was so successful a couple of months ago I had to wait till I had good amounts of everything before posting it again. I have seven different things for you, all for $2 each.

Something that's super important (to me) if you are purchasing multiple items, can you please click the "Continue Shopping" link in the check out and keep shopping rather than checking out for each individual item, the reason for this is that Paypal not only charges a percentage of the transaction but also a per transaction fee and it would make it cheaper for me and also incidentally make it so you don't have to checkout multiple times. If you could do that that would be super.

The link in the title is to my eBay store, the links below are to the products directly:

There's plenty of other stuff available in the store as well, usb cables for the chargers and whatnot. Anyway, any questions, just put em here and I will do my best to answer :-)

Cheers and thanks again for your support,

Brent

    I've got a pair of logitech UE 4000 with microphone built in. But it's a single cable for the audio and microphone. Do you have a splitter so i can plug i the audio and mic into my pc?

    • +4 votes

      no, it doesn't work like that, you need the two separate plugs, one for the microphone input and the other for the headphone output. sorry I can't help :-)

      PlayerOne, I just had a quick search for a cable for you thinking it'd be fairly easy but they seem to be unobtainium. After a few minutes I manage to find this so I hope it helps: http://www.showmecables.com/product/iPhone-Head-Set-Breakout...

      I'm surprised they're not easier to find as you'd assume lots of people would want to do this hey. Odd.

        I'm lookin for something with 1 female socket and 2 male plugs so i can plug it into my PC. SteveAndBelle found just the exact item im looking for!

        That website seems so expensive thought. $10 for item + $20 shipping. Brent stock this item for us please.

      Here you go, $2.80. I found it by searching for "iPhone splitter" on eBay.

      I use this splitter all day long at work and it works fine.

        Ha, nice work Muzzamo! It's sometimes the simplest searches the yield the results hey :)

          I don't think that this one will do the job, I have those splitters in my own inventory BUT what he was after was a cable that would allow him to plug both the headphones and microphone into the same socket, but if you plug them into a single socket on the PC, it's either the headphone out socket or the microphone in socket which means that whichever socket it's plugged into won't be able to take the other line's input or output because it's not geared to do so.

          I could be wrong but I don't think the 3.5mm plugs and cables are bidirectional.

          The first one that SteveAndBelle linked bears further investigation though. I would be very curious as to how it worked.

        •  

          No pretty sure he just wanted to be able to use both the headphones and mic with his PC (and using 2 plugs to do that isn't a problem)

        • +5 votes

          The one muzzamo just posted is just a double adapter thing as brent (I'm assuming thats his name) said.

          This is the one you need. Much cheaper than the one SteveandBelle was able to find.

          Just search for something like '3.5mm mic splitter' on ebay. I just ordered one myself yesterday. Notice that it splits one female 3.5mm jack into 2 male which are labelled as headphones and mic which you plug into the computer, not the other way round like the one posted above.

        •  

          I could be wrong but I think he wants to go the other way, two plugs from his headphones to a single plug on his computer

        •  

          Nice find.

          Just ordered 2.

        •  

          Even nicer work gazlaz. Perfect.

        •  

          the UE 4000 is earphones + mic with 1 plug.. what gazlaz posted above is exactly what he needs.. i've actually got that exact same plug from DX —> http://dx.com/p/3-5mm-female-to-audio-microphone-male-adapte...

          but it flipped my L & R channels :S

      Everything that's being discounted has already been discounted. My prices are set at the lowest I can make them and still make it worthwhile to be in business.

      • +13 votes

        I understand how you feel.
        You discount and reduce to the point where eBay and PayPal are the only ones making the profit and the customers still complain that its still too expensive.

    im not bothered,
    i just find if funny how someone tries to give people the best deal they can and other tight asses still complain about 20c

    Looks like people like getting their hands on Brent's bits. I had a look at his bits but that's as far as it went.

  • +15 votes

    Some people dont understand "a business" involves overheads of many kinds and feel ripped off if the retailer makes 1c profit.
    They need to learn that not everyone lives off their parents and it is a mean & expensive world outside the cosy nest.

    Hi Bren, can you do me a deal if i get 10 x HDMI Right Angle Adapter? (or maybe 15) :)

    • +3 votes

      Minimum quantity for wholesale pricing at this stage is 50 units, if you want that many, let me know and I will work something out for you.

  • +5 votes

    Hey brentsbits, how did you know I was after some of this stuff? Thanks.
    If you want you could combine my orders into one parcel to save on your postage costs, the environment and my precious letterbox space.

    what is the amperage of your dual usb car charger on ebay?

    •  

      Total output is 2.1A over both the sockets, I believe that each socket can output that as well but if you have to things plugged in it would be 1A each roughly. Make sure you have a cable that supports that kind of current, none of mine do at this stage I am working on sourcing ones that do.

      •  

        thanks for that.. just a shame that the plug is so big cos it's gonna take up another socket on my 3 in 1 board

    Thank you!! :) I missed out on these last time and glad to get a second chance to buy

    •  

      I'll keep posting stuff here when I can and have enough stock of an item to make it worthwhile :-)

    Awesome. Just bought a micro HDMI adapter. Thanks!

  •  

    Hey Brent, I am just wondering how you afford to sell these as cheap as you do?

    Isn't postage on these types of items $1.20 via Aus Post?

    Then you have eBay and PayPal fees etc?

    I was thinking the same thing when looking on eBay for iPhone cables and there is stores selling them for $1.00 delivered.

    Thanks ;)

      Secrets of the trade….I respect that you want to know etc. but there's no way I am telling :-)

    • +1 vote

      I thought the same thing and looked into it

      Economy of scale. Australia post offers a discount on bulk orders for packaging (apparently up to 60%) and the items would be purchased direct from china (through something like aliexpress which has similar 3.5mm cords for between $0.30 and $0.50 shipped). The margins would still be quite slim though.

  •  

    Do you have an adapter that would allow me to connect my Mac Book Air (2011 model) to my Dell U2711 IPS panel that runs at 2560x1440? Best I seem to find so far only give me 1080p which is not enough…

    Thanks

    •  

      If it's not on my ebay store then no I don't, I'm not even sure what you would need.

    •  

      Don't quote me but I am fairly sure with a macbook 1080p is the best you are going to get, I think the (mini) display port is the only way of reaching full 1440p but again don't quote me.

    Can't the OP post such deals through GumTree [just to avoid those ridiculous ebay-paypal fee]

      Tried that, not a single buyer….

        Have you tried posting the GT link over here [Just an idea!]

        • +4 votes

          Yeah, I'd still need to have payment processing etc. Most people here prefer paying by Paypal anyway cause it's easier. It's something I have to suck up until I get my website and payment processing set up on my own.

      •  

        Good, stay away from Gumtree.. full of scams. Ebay gives you protection, whereas Gumtree doesn't. It's only good for Face to Face transaction.

    Just bought a DVI/HDMI adapter, headphone splitter, USB A/micro cord, 12V/USB adapter, and microSD/USB adapter. For $10.20 and expected delivery some time next week, that's a +.

  •  

    Purchased. :)

  •  

    Just bought a couple more things I needed. Have bought from Brentsbits before and delivery was quick and quality was good especially for the price paid.

  •  

    Bought 6 items, lets see how good is your stuffs…
    Hey, where is the dual USB AC charger? :P

  •  

    Picked up the HDMI adaptors. Very handy to have, and nice price. Thats for the heads up. I didn't even know that I wanted them until I saw them here (Still not sure what I will need them for yet, but I am sure they will come in handy).
