It got here today and I see why the high shipping cost. It came in a heavy padded envelope, anti-static bag, a 3" x 4" hinged anti-static plastic box which was lined with 2 pieces of anti-static foam. Wow. I was putting it into the charger without a board by attaching it to the glued in LEDs. I soldered the output wire on, the last solder joint, and afterward I must have wiggled the wire while putting the charger together and the output pin number 5 broke off the chip. Well, there is $12.48 down the toilet and I have leaned a valuable lesson. I now found the chips for $2.90 and a board for $0.50 and ordered 2 of each with $4.00 shipping for a total of $10.80. Here is where I found them.
