    Pros:
    Very nice and slick soldering iron.
    Cons:
    Is specified to work with 220-240V and it does, but it has an American style plug. Fortunately I had also ordered a "Flat to Ro...

    Pros:
    - Very good selection of bits. Has several usually "impossible to get bits". - The bits hexagon size are delightfully smaller that standard bits, making it easier to work with tiny objects. - Very nice case. The bits are lifted as you open the case.
    Cons:
    Not standard hexagon size of the base of the bits - but wait thats actually a good thing! Like others, a couple of the bits ha...

    Very good LED light

    posted by MrAlvin on 01/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice build quality. The grill part that seems like cooling fins are actually made of some kind of aluminum (I tested this by dremmeling into one of the fins) and they are actually cooling grills. Not that a 3.8 watt light needs cooling! The halogen lig...
    Cons:
    The housing is slightly higher than my regular 20W Halogen light bulb that is being replaced with this LED light. For me this d...

    Pros:
    Gives very god solder joints. Better than what I get from standard Savbit Alloy 5 core Ersin Flux that I get from worldwide distributor RC components. Very thin solder strip makes it perfect where you need detailed control and/or small amounts of solder.
    Cons:
    You'll quickly need more, because its so thin.

    Super cheap, Super small, Super nice

    posted by MrAlvin on 09/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very small indeed, even smaller than my otherwise "worlds smallest Kingmax 1Gb USB drive". Can be made even smaller and flatter by trimming off the "handle"/keychain eye. - Good speed. Though final speed depends on the actaul Micro SD ...
    Cons:
    - Very small so its easy to loose track of. I keep mine in the coin part of my wallet, in the rubber socket that came with the...
