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

    Pros:
    This is great! removes all stains from your tip. Enter soldering tip when hot and you have a tip that is good as new!
    Cons:
    the tin is small. I mean really small. After a couple of uses (20 or 30x ) it will be empty and you need to order a new one....

    Pros:
    It works as a charm! To change settings: 1: Connect it with an USB to serial cable, make sure the TX on the USB cable is on the RX of the bluetooth module. (and vice versa) 2: Download terminal program, I recommend bray's terminal. Don't use puTTy, you will...

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

    Pros:
    This is good quality shrink tube and it is dirt cheap. I love it use it all the time for my RC plane, soldering servo leads and arduino leads together, schrink tube it to protect and insulate the joints For most hobby appliances this size pack are most used.
    Cons:
    bit bent/flat corners due to packing but to me thats not a real con, to avoid this they should ship it in 3M enveloppes ;)

    Cons:
    Delivery time. It took a long time to ship. But they were well worth the wait

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