Does the job. – Goot Desoldering Wick Remover (2.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It absorbs solder. That's the purpose of the product and it does it well...sometimes. You can tell it works if the copper turns grey as it picks up the solder. There are english instructions if you are confused.
Cons:
At times, it doesn't seem to work. I ended up heating stuff up to damaging temperatures and still the thing doesn't absorb any solder. It is a hit and miss, and to solve it, I cutted off the wick a bit, and did the same, which then worked again.
Other:
Price is well cheap. Get alot so that you are bound to have enough to desolder a whole circuit board.
Bottomline:
Maybe it was just mine, but this is still worth getting.
