I needed 6 aaa battery boxes and 6 on-off switches. I ordered them from Allied Electronics, Ft Worth, Tx. The boxes cost $5.58 and the switches cost $4.14. They listed $5.00 as a handling charge. I thought OK, not bad. THEN I get the bill. On top of the $5.00 handing charge, a shipping charge of $13.16. Not bad $18.16 for $9.72 worth of merchandise. I emailed them Monday and no answer as of 10PM Thursday night. Needless to say, my last order from them.
