Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
+ Extremely cheap (in Russia it costs x3 more).
+ Has flux inside.
+ This flux is enoughly active for soldering electronic components but may be not enoughly active for soldering metal dishes.
+ 200 g will be enough for a long time for a home use.
+ It is NOT lead-free, it is NOT RoHS and it is GREAT (see "Other Thoughts").
I can't think of any.
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is a way for stealing money from a pocket of those people who use electronics. Restriction of using lead, for example, in a car makes me laugh because of a lead-acid battery which contains about 8-10 kg of lead.
Also RoHS is a method to program a time to live for electronics for 10 years - after 10 years lead-free solders will recrystallize so you will have to resolder them. Remember about Robert Scott - recrystallization of tin without lead killed him and his people.
This solder is NOT RoHS and it is great.
Cheap and useful if a soldering iron is your second spoon. xD
