    The solder wick actually surprised me for its effectiveness. Solder adheres easilly even without using additional flux. It came neatly and cleanly packaged. Great value for price. Nothing worth notice. If I had to mention something negative, I'd say that the solder wick is slightly flimsy and may tend to deform when pressed by the soldering tip. However ... Read more

    Easy to use. Nice package, you can close it back when you finished work with it. Really cheap. You can remove solder from pcb, maybe you need some flux. Fast shipping, on stock! Very long lifetime if you use only for your hobby. Nothing special, works fine. If you like electronic, you need it. You can repair old pcbs easyer. Good product for this price.... Read more

    I works great. I was really surprised how much solder it can consume and is really small and really cheap. For me it is best buy. It contains no flux and if you heat it for long time it sticks to the package and little bit stinks. ;-) If you have some old pcb's or old computer boards try to count. Probably the salvaged parts will be much more wort of ... Read more

For this price it doesn't matter though. The copper-wire gets very hot, don't hold too ... Read more

    - Does what is supposed to. It sucks up solder. - Very good price. The stuff I use at school is 20 times more expensive and only works marginally better. - Doesn't appear to contain any flux. The best way to use this is to put some flux down on the solder you are going to remove, then place this wire ontop of the solder, then place your iron on top ... Read more

    Good price for copper braid. One and a half meters will last a good while. Braid is a little stiff. Just the thing to clean up PCB to replace components. Read more
