Decent for the price – IC Chip Vacuum Sucker Pen Set for Electronics DIY (4-Piece Set) Reviews

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

Pros:
This pen is very cheap and does the job reasonably well. Mine came with 2 of the smallest cups (1 extra). The suction seems good; it had no trouble lifting a heavy ceramic EEPROM.
Cons:
Feels flimsy. Hard to attach suction cups as holes are very tiny. Largest cup does not fit well into reservoir; need tweezers to get it out. The cups probably won't last very long; they're quite poorly made.
Other:
It really should ship with TWO sets of cups. The small one is very easy to lose.
Bottomline:
Great for the price if you use this only occasionally. Not suited to any kind of production environment.
