Much heavier order less expensive.

Hello, i want to purchase:

1. Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module: For Raspberry Pi and more (PID: 814)
2. Low-profile microSD card adapter for Raspberry Pi (PID: 966)

BUT I WONDER what is so heavy in those tiny parts: Total Items: 2 Weight: 0.4725lbs???

PLUS

The shipping cost is higher for those two items than when i had order of 0.78lbs

Is there some trick?

Check my prints screens proofing this.

Old, heavier order 0.78 lbs : http://www.nardev.org/_temp/078.png 14.20$
New, lighter order 0.47 lbs (although there can be nothing that heavier than 20 grams) : http://www.nardev.org/_temp/047.png 15.35$
