An Absolute Must – Soldering Remover Ball - Color Assorted - Color Assorted (Large) Reviews

posted by shadowsill on 06/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Of the hundreds of things I've bought from DX, this has probably been the most useful. I used a regular sponge for years and years, and never thought twice about it. This thing removes solder 10x better without cooling down the tip. It pays for itself by making your tips usable for longer.
Cons:
There's no tray and no easy way to attach it to anything - so it just sits on the table, all the solder it removes just falls to the table beneath it, cleaning all that up can be a pain.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you solder a lot or a little, you simply have to own one of these. Even if you're skeptical, for the price, you need to at least try one. I'm buying 5 more right now.
