Not really a review, but have noticed that prices on AliExpress seem to have risen of late. And if the prices haven't, then the cost of freight using a different carrier (such as EMS or DHL) are astronomical.

Hi Peter,

Pricing sometimes depend on the popularity of the product. So with this aspect, prices will surely go up. Also, if you factor in the law of supply and demand: if supply is low and demand is high, the price will surely be high. So be it on AliExpress or anywhere else, price rates will never be of a fixed value.

Hope this clarifies.

Chinese currency has also dropped of late, so it could be a readjustment due to market factors.

Both good points. Just wish I was able to buy larger quantities so I could go direct to the companies themselves. Working on that one :)
