World's Smallest Universal Slim USB Car Charger — Price: 1 Cent


No tricks!

My friend Thomas over at USBFever just tipped me to his company's holiday gift to the masses, as follows:

    Hi Joseph,

    Just a message to you that we have a cool item on sale for one cent.

    Even with $2.99 shipping, the price is $3!


Tell you what, that beats — by a Podunk/country mile — the best price you'll find anywhere in the world for such a device, whether it's down the street at Radio Shack or Akihabara.

From the website:

Universal Slim USB Car Charger

We want to fight against the so-called 'Financial Tsunami' with you.
We want you to be one of our customers!
We wish you Merry Christmas too!

So we've arranged this quality USB Car charger for you.

The cost is US$0.01 with a $2.99 shipping charge.

As the quantity is limited and we want more people to benefit from it, so basically each person is limited to one, however, we understand that some people may also want this as a gift for their family, loves... we allow everyone to buy up to a maximum of 10 in a time but we also charge the item's shipping cost, so each additional item is US$3 including the shipping charge.

In other words, 10 chargers cost a total of $30.

It is at the basis of first-come-first-serve and we reserve all the rights to have more terms and conditions as we deem it is suitable at any time.

For shipment, we normally ship this item out in ~5-7 days, we will try our best to ship in 2 days, however.

Very cool, but they only accept Paypal. I went through the process to see if it was accepting credit cards but no. Personally it's too much of a hassle to deposit money into my Paypal acct & wait 2-3 days or more for it to show up, so I never use Paypal.

Can one pick it up in person and therefore save on the shipping charges?
