Can anyone explain or point me to a good description of cut tape and tape and reel packaging? I'm using quite a few molex connectors in my project and these crimp connectors. If I buy them in bulk packaging they are 10 cents each in quantities of 100, which is a bit steep. I can't recall where, but I once bought them where the crimp side ends were connected to a metal tape and they were easy to break off with a few bends. Is that tape and reel packaging? Digikey shows a 10,000 minimum quantity for tape and reel so I bought some with cut tape packaging to try. But these were attached together opposite the crimp side and I found it extremely difficult to cut them with snips and get them to fit in the connector housing. I'm just trying to cut costs and two or three cents apiece would help but I don't understand the packaging types and can't find a good description. Any help would be appreciated.
