    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * 3 meters is a lot, most shops in EU will sell you by small pieces, which come a couple times more expensive than this

    * It's just the kind of thing that's super useful, especially when dealing with electrical stuff

    * It's very cheap as stated before

    Cons:

    * 2:1 shrink ratio is not that great

    * The packaging is not great(you can see on customer images) and comes with the typical crappy Chinese sticky tape

    OtherThoughts:

    I've used quite some of that for electrical projects, and it just works great. Good insulation, and very solid. However if you do smaller electrical stuff/electronics, you will want to get the smaller sizes, since these are quite big, smallest is 6mm, which goes 3mm after shrinkage, and only large gauge electrical wire will fit that.

    Bottomline:

    Highly recommended, just get a pack of those.
