AliExpress #3 - Arduino Nano CH340



Arduino Nano CH340
Day 34

I have been waiting for this order. Three Arduino Nano clones, using the CH340G chipset. Considering a Genuino Micro is priced at $24.09 Canadian. You also have to add $3.13, 13% sales tax. If that wasn't bad enough you still have to include $6.24 for shipping.

So I could purchase a Genuino Arduino for $33.35 delivered to my door. Or through purchasing a clone from AliExpress I was able to purchase three clones for $8.14 also delivered to my door. The difference between the two, besides one being a clone, is I had to wait 32 days for the arrival of my clones, where I could have to Genuino in a much quicker 3 to 5 days.

  • Genuino
    • $72.27  (3 * 24.09)
    • $  9.40  (13% tax)
    • $  6.24  (Cheapest Shipping)
    • $87.91  (Total)
  • AliExpress Clones
    • $7.11   (3 * 2.37)
    • $1.02   (Cheapest Shipping)
    • $8.14   (Total)

Fun math: $87.91 (3 Genuino's) - $8.14 (3 Clones) / 28 (difference in shipping days) = $2.84
I saved roughly $2.84 for every day I had to wait for this order.
