Wanted: Raspberry Pi Zero W

Fri Mar 06, 2020 1:30 pm

Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK that has a Pi Zero W?
I've found plenty of sites that list them for about £9 but are out of stock.
I want to add a colour-coded header to it. I've found someone selling the Pi Zero W with one already installed but it's £16, which seems a lot considering the header by itself is £1.50.

There should be some arriving in stock soon - there's been a lot of demand* in the last few months which has left the channel a bit empty.

Hooray!
I was beginning to think there must be someone Out There who can't see a W without soldering a header onto it :)

Quite some time ago I think, but don't know exact figures.

Those are probably ZeroWH, since the Pi Zero / Pi Zero W are supposed to be a one per customer, ever, deal.
