Best supplier for 12v/24v, high amp electrical parts so far!

For reals. Check out VTE Warehouse. (https://www.vtewarehouse.com/). I believe I read about them somewhere on this board, buried deep in a related thread.
I just received my order from them and for $33 I got twice as many power posts, fuse holders, grommets, etc as I could get for the same money on Amazon.

Blue Sea 5/16" power post on Amazon: $13.94 (http://www.amazon.com/New-BLUE-SEA-2...post+5%2F16%22
VTE Inc 5/16" power post: $2.32 for black, $2.57 for red (https://www.vtewarehouse.com/content.../770Series.php)

Here's a list of my purchases and prices.
  • - grommets to protect wires going through sheet metal. One red, other black. $0.89 each
    - Red power post 5/16" with small base. $1.63
    - Red 8 point power distribution post 5/16". $5.38
    - Weatherproof through panel 1/2" 500amp power bushing with boots. $7.99
    - ANL "Mega" fuse holder with boots: $4.39
    - 150amp "Mega" ANL fuses: $3.67
    - Shipping: $5.32

Just thought I'd share my good fortune in finding this company!

(typical disclaimer: I don't work for them, I don't gain monetarily for advertising for them, I just buy from them)

Service was fine. My order was exactly what I expected and shipped within a reasonable timeframe, so I didn't have a chance to complain and test out the customer service, though.
It looks like a small operation. Hopefully that's an indication of quality, personal service.

Also, the factory and retail store are in Pellston, Michigan. Looks like a "Made in USA" product.
