About Us

We're an electronic components web retailer based in Hampshire, UK. Cool Components started trading in 2004 because of the difficulty of finding useful electronics 'stuff' at a reasonable price. Now, over 10 years later, we've served hundreds of thousands of happy customers, many of whom come back time after time.

Our customers include hobbyists and makers, students, academics, as well as institutions including universities, NHS trusts and commercial companies.

We sell well-known brands like Arduino, Sparkfun, Raspberry Pi, Pololu and many more. We were one of the first companies to sell affordable non-kit 3D printers in Europe, and we're continuing to push frontiers with DNA research technology and unmanned aerial vehicle innovations.
