Why are keystone pcb battery clips so expensive, and why is no one in China making an alternative?

I'm shocked no one in China is making these for 50 for £1 inc. P&P. cheapest place seems to be RS, at 36p per piece ie. 72p per cell. Does anyone have a decent alternative for AAA cells? You can get 5x single AAA plastic holders for £1 from China but they're a bit bulky

Be careful using that style of battery contact. I have had the metal case of the battery cause a short between the clips. Everything was fine until the clip scraped away the paint on the battery.
