Hopefully it’s ok to post this question here since Pimoroni don’t sell such things?
Does anyone know where one of these cables
can be purchased for a reasonable price in the UK? Farnell and RS all sell them but they all work out at around £20 (vat+delivery) which is quite steep, imo.
All I want to do is plug my esd strap into my mat instead of it having to go to a wall outlet.
Any advice much appreciated.
CPC (Farnell) want £9.37 (plus VAT) but there’s a minimum order of £17.50 (+VAT) to qualify for free postage. If you add another £9 of parts they will all be delivered free.
Alternatively look on Ebay - someone from Bristol is selling that exact RS cord new for £3.99 post free! and he has 47 items available.

Thanks for the reply
@neilman Unfortunately that seller from Bristol is selling one with a banana connector on one end. I had seen it already and I got caught out by that too. You can only just see it in the photo.
It’s so frustrating not being able to find such a simple thing for a reasonable price. :(
After a rummage I found, for £7, you could get a blue one from Ebay seller blueskycomponents
It includes the safety resistor and has the snap connector each end
You are a star! Thanks a lot!
