Better than I initially thought – Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner (Black) Reviews

Pros:
Very good manufacturing quality, much better than I initially expected. It is also bigger than it looks like in the photograph. I prefer this type of tip cleaner over the traditional wet sponge as you usually find a dried sponge and have to spend some time going to the kitchen for some water to wetting it again. Additionally, wet sponge decrease the temperature of the iron tip but this cleaner does not. It is fully made of metal.
Cons:
Perhaps a little more weighty would be better in order to give it more stability over the table, I do not mean it is too light, it is OK but it can be improved.
Other:
A little bit expensive item, having into account how simple it is, but its good quality and functionality easily overcomes its price.
Bottomline:
This soldering iron tip cleaner is a must to have for anyone willing to do a good job on soldering tasks.
