Where to get arduino/electronics kit in the UK

This is where I get my kit from :

Tools and basic components

  • Technobots
    • http://www.technobots.co.uk
    • Good range of boxes and components.
    • Local business, based in Totton. Gives the SoutHACKton group a discount !
  • Bitsbox(*****)
  • Rapid Components (***)
    • http://www.rapidonline.com/
    • 1-stop shop for most bits and pieces, tools…etc. Club together with friends, order more than £30 (pre-vat), and delivery is free, else it’s £5-ish
  • RS components(***)
  • Maplin(*)
    • http://www.maplin.co.uk/
    • Really expensive components, but some special offers, and some tools are cheaper here. I got a soldering iron with a digital display for target/actual temperature from here for £30 !
