Hey everyone!

I have been doing some retail arbitrage on a super small scale and I see that I can flip loudspeakers, kitchen tools or computer accessories (keyboards, mouses etc.) super easily. The demand for these devices are incredible.

Which brounght me to the idea of maybe creating a brand for myself.

Has anyone tried creating their own brand in electronics? If so, what are the drawbacks of such a business? (huge capital need, competition with huge brands?)

I would love to hear some experience here.

Typically people steer clear from electronics due to large number of returns.

You need to pick either high end (lots of capital needed, lots of established competition) or low end (lots of returns and headaches, razor thin margins)
