BAT41 source or substitute
« on: January 06, 2011, 10:14:51 AM »
Looking for a reasonable source for the BAT41 or a suitable sub from small bear.  Mouser wants $5 to ship a few diodes.  Looks like the fwd v-drop of only .45v is what makes the BAT41 unique.  Any suggestions?  Or shall I just suck-it-up and pay Mouser.
Thanks!

You can find a better price/diode than mouser, but you will probably have to wait a LOT longer for your shipment to come in (example- futurlec).  Regardless, any place you order from is going to have shipping and handling.  Of course the best thing to do is order other stuff along with the diodes so you can spread that shipping cost out over many parts.

Sounds like you might just have to suck it up and order from mouser or find a substitute.  What pedal are you building?  Serenditpity?  Sunking?

I have read that the 1N60 is somewhat close...

It looks to me like Mouser doesn't have any of the BAT41's in stock. It may be easier to order them from somewhere else.

I would go to BYOC or DIYSB forums and see if anyone can spare some. I'd offer, but my supply is actually quite low at the moment.

Thanks for the correction, Haberdasher. It appears I was only looking under shottky diodes and missed the rectifier entry.

I got mine at futurlec based a prior recommendation from Haberdasher (thanks again!). They were really cheap, but delivery was slow.

How many do you need? I still have some left from my Serendipity build. If you just need 3, I can send 'em.

Looks like I'll make a buy from Futurlec.  Thanks for the recommendations.

If you've still got those BAT41's, I'd love to hit you up for at least two of 'em.  Ideally I'd like four.  PM me, let's make a deal!

Careful, I ordered BAT41's from Futurelec and received BAT42's.   :(

Around thirty eight cents apiece at Mouser. As with most Mouser stuff they get drastically cheaper the more you buy. I have enough builds planned in the future that use them that I didn't mind paying $7.60 for twenty. I think at 25 units the price starts to decrease!
