A nice little electronics tool – IC Chip Vacuum Sucker Pen Set for Electronics DIY (4-Piece Set) Reviews

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

Pros:
A nice tool to have if you do surface mount electronics and lay your own solder paste.
A variety of nozzles included mean you can pick up lots of different chips - I think anything larger than a SOIC-8. For smaller devices (such as a SOT-23), you'd be better off using tweezers. It works well - there is plenty of suction
Cons:
None, really. It could be a bit easier to press the button, but then it wouldn't suck as hard.
Other:
Pretty good for under $4!
Bottomline:
Could do with a holder for the unused nozzles - I stick mine inside the body (the end comes off).
I'd recommend it.
