The easy way to overcome the "shame" of getting samples from companies is to avoid abuse by limiting your sample requests to two different categories:  1) new technology they just released that you might find interesting.  2) any chipset or technology which you have never used and want to know if it will work for you application.  That is what samples are for, so as long as you don't order samples for parts you need just because you can get them for free there is no reason to feel bad.

ya but sometimes if u need samples over and over again then it can be odd if u need more samples

well if you sample the same part over and over , just because you need 8 of that part or something , thats wrong and feel ashamed

remember , that when you sample you are testing out their products and in the future when someone asks you for a good part or you need a big order of it , you know which part to buy. For example ,that part from national that AndrewM sampled , now you know about it and you might buy it or use it in your application. You see how this advertising system works?

strange system though like me thousands of people will be ordering samples from them  dont you think that they will incur losses due to it ??

Of the probably ten thousand or more samples that these companies each send out per year, a small percent will wind up in a product that will get mass produced, resulting in millions of sales.  For the small cost of the samples, versus the millions in revenue generated as a result, it is well worth it. 

Take the switching regulator as an example.  If National sends out two switching regulators to 1000 customers this year (so 2000 switching regulators) that cost them $0.50 each to manufacturer and $1.00 in shipping.  Those samples cost the company $2000.00.  If only two of the customers (that's only 0.2%) use the switching regulator in products, and each sells 1000 of that product, National has just made their money back and a small profit.  On top of that, those two customers are going to be more likely to purchase other chips and semiconductors from National, seeing as how well the switching regulators worked out for them.

but thats definitely adhoc.... its something they are assuming what if none of them make a product out of it then they will incur heavy losses

Put a heat sink on it coz it will get quite hot if u regulate it down to 5V. this is quite innefficient (9.6V - 5V) why dont u look at other batteries. Those 9.v batteries are just 8 AA rechargeables.

Look... what I'll say may be a little extreme but....
Just try to remove 2 batteries from the pack and get a 7V2 charger...

And you will also have 2 extra batteries at hand!!!

P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!
