Photon sold out in Particle Store?

I need to order a few Photons for my project. I just found out that Photon is sold out from the Particle Store. Does anyone know when will the Photon be available?

HI @Peter75 -

I checked in the wholesale store, seems to be back in stock fairly soon? Have you maybe considered using Argon devices instead??

Friedl.

Have you checked distributors like Adafruit, Sparkfun, Digikey, Mouser etc.? They usually have the Photon in stock.

EDIT:
It looks like Mouser has the most in stock.

Arrow also has some in stock.

Also for future reference, Octopart is a great website for searching for parts. https://octopart.com/search?q=particle+photon&currency=USD&specs=0

Thanks!! Unfortunately, I already design the project with Photon. I do not want to redesign the PCB. I did find some stock in Mouser.

Hi Peter -

Glad to hear you managed!!

DigiKey is also no bad, I just always try to buy Particle things from Particle if at all possible :slight_smile:

Makes sense. I am considering moving to Gen 3 devices myself as it comes with the built-in battery charger :slight_smile:

Not an ideal scenario, but you can use a classic adapter for testing and use. Ive used these successfully in a product for argons and borons to replace photons and electrons.
