    Hope this helps.
    ahhhh, i was at Funan yesterday but missed it. Anyway, thanks for looking out. nice gesture, bro!

    - C7000
    - Stylus 500
    - u40
    - D630
    - u Minis
    - Stylus verve

    you have totally no idea how much it costs to manufacture 1 piece of that cable. You only counted the raw materials.

    You minimum order to any manufacturer better be in the upper half of the 4 digits before anyone will accept your orders. Inital ID will cost at the very minimum $10K just for the connector head alone and each mould will cost another 5-6K. Before you see your first piece of connector, you would have to pump in ~15K that is provided you know how to produce the design. Else you can hire a free lance designer to draw the insides out for you. Free-lancers charge between $200-$500 a day, should be done in a day or two.. relatively cheap compared to $15K

    i ever tried doing a project to customise a miniature 3pin plug and most plants told me you either run 1000 pieces every month for a period of XXmonths OR make 1 time order of 10,000 pieces.. I only needed 100 pieces back then..

    Still game for 5000 pieces? you can earn 250,000 you know

    looks like I will have it get it from Oly and LL pay $61 or if there are kind souls out there who can sell me their spare USB-5 cable.

    Anyway, time to sell the e500...........but looking at the B&S, the response to the 'WTS:e500' is quite pathetic.

    my e500 is a decorative cam in the dry box.
