How much does a single connector cost at Digi Key cost? The way they set it up is kind of wierd. I think one of the connectors cost 0.14400 cents. Which is kind of expensive that 's way I'm asking. Here the page to the connector:

The way I read it is $0.14 per contact. It helps to go back to the original catalog page. That really is NOT that expensive for separate crimp-on contacts.

Not too expensive at all at 14 cents, some crimp contacts you pay more than a dollar a piece for.
But if you buy a million of them, they'll probably give you a discount :-)

Thank you for your replies. At Futurlec you get a better price:http://www.futurlec.com/ConnHead.shtml

If you want a fair comparison, it looks like the Futurlec one might not be gold plated.

The tin version of the one you posted is only 9.2 cents: http://search.digikey.com/script...

Newark has the cheapest one off price at 6.8 cents: http://www.newark.com/jsp/search...

Although, it looks like this is a different contact as it is rated at 3A and the futurlec one is only 1A.
