Works great, makes soldering so much easier – Solder Tip Refresher Reviews

posted by jumpfroggy on 04/10/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Quickly and easily retins solder iron tips. After tinning, it's so much easier to solder (like a new iron, w/o all the oxidation). Definitely necessary if you solder at all (even once a month or less like me).
Cons:
Top comes off easily, always falling off when I store the case somewhere. Case is small, a little larger than about 3-4 quarters stacked. That said, I've used about 5% of mine so far.
Other:
Great little product, literally "breathes new life" into solder iron tips. A real bonus, as my tips seem to get oxidized pretty quickly and then take *forever* to transfer heat. Now they work like new.
Bottomline:
I'd get it. Makes soldering easier.
