The Cui parts are also available in a TO-220 pinout

Mouser has them  V7805-1000 for example, in a variety of configurations 
and ratings, but a bit more expensive.. $5-10

Maybe you need to search for DC/DC converter or something?

I found them a few years ago because I was looking for surface mount 
power converters

Seems there's tons of them from a variety of mfrs, judging from the 
Mouser search engine
