The price at right now is 59 EUR.

I am not sure how much more or less expensive they would be elsewhere.

As to buying them in bulk, that might be possible, although I am not
sure how much the price would go down. Someone would have to organise
that. Maybe you could ask who would like to team up with you? We could

True. The small USB devices are around 29 EUR, I think.
