Hobby Electronics eShops in Pakistan

AoA,

Dear fellow engineers and hobbyists, ever wonder after watching youtube videos to get your hands dirty with electronics? Happens to me all the time. But the problem is how to start and with what?

Usually in states, UK and Aussie land people have stores like Jameco and Digi-key. We don't have facilities like these in PK. Yes, I'm talking about DIY kits. If you know any online local stores that sells such kits do mention it. I know Hall-road has almost all basic components etc, but that doesn't come in a kit + the quality gets compromised.

A complete solution site where tools as well as kits could be bought. Tools such as good soldering iron, helping-hands etc.

Will appreciate your feedback!

Thanks!

ya bro right question.. i also was thinking exactly same and wanted to ask . but u asked first.

i m also anxiously waiting for any response..

whenever i like any experiment or tweak .. and i go to market i cant find the required ic or its equivalent...

and neither is there any way to order it in small quantity...

and neither are the shopkeepers ready to order new parts.. they just sell what their grandfather sold... no new additions..

thanks though! I’ve been to this site for quite alot but this seems a bit outdated and over-priced. Things they are selling for 400Rs are available for around 150Rs in Hall Road. I liked their idea but the site needs to be more up-to-dated and with useful DIY Kits.

Best to order kits from China (AliExpress.com, etc.). They are much better quality than local kits and come in 2-6 weeks. For components, try E-Vision Electronics (http://www.evselectro.com/contact-us). They charge nominal amount for next day delivery (Rs 50 in Islamabad).
