Anyone ordered something lately in this shop? Looks dead to me, and I don't want to waste my money Smiley

if you search this forum you will discover that for some people they have been totally unresponsive (months).  Better get a confirmation before spending a penny and even then it is still a risk.  I always hear they are down and then after they start responding (?). It is not very reliable unfortunately.

I have been seeking for alternatives. "extending" a FFC is not a common problem of the industry (typically you only need to get a longer FFC).  So there is no standard parts for "extending".   If it was me, I would go with soldering two connectors back-to-back. (someone did this in a forum and even attempted at writing some sort of tutorial). Delicate, but hey. It is the cheapest option (if you already have soldering equipment).

I took a risk and looks like they are operational at the moment. Moreover I ordered 1 cable i 1 pcb and they sent me like 10 pieces of cable and 2 pcb. Waited 3 days for my order.
