Simple but usefull – TL-06 SMD Precise-Circuit and Micro-Electronics Tester Probe Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It's a simple tool but very useful to test small components. You can contact two pins within its range - and still have one hand free.
Locally it costs about four times the price - the exact same tool!
Cons:
The contacts bend easy. So for contacts covered with soldering flux, a little extra cleaning before meassuring is needed sometimes.
The wires are not too long. Some centmeters more would be nice.
Other:
The tips bend easy so don't use too much force. With normsal probes I always scratch the soldering flux from the solder points to get some contacts - with this probe, it won't work.
Bottomline:
The first one I got was DOA; one wire had no contact to the tip. RMA at DX worked easy and great!
