Keep your soldering tip fresh – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

posted by notexa on 04/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It cleans the tip very good. Works better than a sponge (although I also use the sponge for a final cleaning just before retinning the tip).
Compared to a sponge the temperature of the tip doesn't drop a lot.
Cons:
It's too light. A more heavy base would make sure that it doesn't move around when cleaning your tip. Now I put it against the wall so that it won't slide away.
The instructions are in Engrish, not English. But after three readings you get what they mean.
Other:
Make sure to clean the curls from time to time. Just take them out of the box and rub them lightly under clean running water.
Bottomline:
Works great and doesn't cost much. Recommended for everybody who solders a lot.
