Mil-spec connectors have been certified by the U.S. government for use in military applications. Not all mil-spec connectors find their way into military use, however, and they can be used in other applications as well. Mil-spec connectors are often purchased by private companies and individuals who use military equipment and technology in their business operations.

Availability of Mil-Spec Connectors

The consequence is a large supply and high demand for mil-spec connectors and other obsolete electronic components. Connectors are required for the interface of two devices. Without them, devices will not be able to communicate or work properly. Mil-spec connectors and other high quality obsolete electronic components are commonly sold online by various independent distributors. These distributors often have incredible selection, even of hard-to-find parts.

Independent distributors are able to sell their products at discounted prices. They can do this because many of the companies that sell their excess inventories of mil-spec connectors and other parts will sell them for next to nothing simply to get the surplus stock out of their warehouse and off of their books. The distributor purchases the excess inventory and then sells it on its own website. Because they were able to purchase surplus, obsolete products at extremely low prices and because they have low overhead costs, online distributors offer the lowest prices around.

Independent distributors are also more convenient than other suppliers. Customers can browse the distributor’s available products online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Ordering from an online dealer is easy because most accept multiple forms of payment and they will ship your order directly to the address you specify. There is no need to visit a crowded electronics store or deal with pushy sales people when you shop online. It is the most convenient way to shop imaginable.
