Tiny solar cells - UK supplier?

Solarbotics sell a tiny solar cell. A dollar each, but postage doubles the price.

Does anybody know of a cheaper source, preferably in the UK?

I have already googled, and failed.

Alternatively, is it possible to cut or break up a normal solar cell and still use the fragments?

(LOL - the site is even laid out like Solarbotics!)

Oh... I'll have to check the currency rates, but I think that it works out slightly cheaper to buy from the US!

Ah, there's a thought.

I have sent an email via the Act On CO2 pages.

Oh, and dopey thing I should have tried earlier - the cells are supplied by Siemens, so I have contacted them as well.

i have stubled upon site that sells broken and damaged panels in bulk in really low prices they claim its possible i'd not break good panels on purpose. its greener to employ them somewhere else as they are (complete panels) and use batteries instead
