    They are used to make keep-alive devices. But they are hard to find here. Can I find them in PC motherboards or any specific electronic circuits?
    Thanks

    Do you have access to Amazon in Argentina? Or are they too expensive with shipping? They are running at $3-$5 here.

    Hi, I got the same reply in another forum, so I will paste my answer:

    The problem is, it is complicated to buy items abroad, this is inherited from the previous gov.

    Filling forms online, paying the tax, and in some cases, waiting for months until the item, if we are lucky, arrives at home or worst, at Customs, then I will miss a working day there. Bllsht!

    Wow, that is really a major pain. Sorry to hear that and unfortunately I have no solution for you! (Not that you expected one, I'm sure).

    Does anyone make capacities small enough to fit inside an N scale loco? TCS makes an M1 wired for a keep-alive.
