Bulk Buy AF/Passive adapters

So, my boss bought a 5 pack of UniFi 8 port 60W switches without realizing they don't do passive POE, so we'll likely need some AF adapters, but I hate to order a whole bunch of individuals.  Is there any plan in the works to offer them in a higher quantity package?

I can imagine that a lot of the price is in the packaging and handling of single SKUs and that bulk packs make sense.  Don't know of too many cases where only one would be purchased especially if there is shipping tagged on.  At the very least one should buy two to have one as a spare.

The forum wants to know if I got the answer I needed, so I guess not...

On I wait.

Dangit - from the title I at first thought you wanted Injectors, and was excited to finally have someone to mail my boxes of spares to.  Smiley Sad

Re: Bulk Buy AF/Passive adapters

haha, no we also have boxes of injectors. the goal is to have more stuff powered directly from switches, thus using fewer injectors/outlets.
