Frys Free After Instant Savings & Mail In-Rebate Items

-1 Deal Score

Frys put out a bunch of Frys Free After Instant Savings & Mail In-Rebate Items: https://www.frys.com/ads/page64

Some of the items I really like:
  • Rhino Storage Snap & Stack System - 5 Pack
  • Raidmax 15FT HDMI Cable
  • Rhino 5V 2.5A Micro USB Connector with AC Adapter

Seems to be limit 2 per household

The 5V Micro USB AC Adapter has a peak rating of 2.5A but can provide 350mA continuously. It uses the flyback topology with a SG 8pin DIP and a zener-optocoupler for negative feedback.

I am building an offgrid solar panel system with no batteries and hook these little PSUs directly to my homemade inverter that runs directly of the solar panels without needing expensive batteries. By tweaking the zener it's possible to modify this to output different voltages, or if you are like me, you can replace the entire zener with a TL431. Your choice Applause

I am excited to see Frys FAR items back. Let me know what you find!

Stay away from Rhino products and their MIRs. They never honor their rebates. Sham of a company.

None of these items interest me, but i will say that I bought a rhino fan once and got the rebate no problem. I trust any rebate from Fry's.

I think I agree with you. Bought one of their electro-light USB cable that worked for about 6 months (used 2-3 times a week) and it stopped working. The light still comes on but no power because none of the phone shows that it is taking a charge.
