Barbell = = Dumbell

These are very small - about 3mm diameter and 5mm length with a small
ferrite "drum" inside with a slot where the wire is wound. We may be talking

Photo attached of a 22uH choke with plastic outer removed - plus ballpoint
tip for size comparison.
I suspect these are about as cheap as anything available.
