I just got this today. 

20190619_122335.thumb.jpg.d07865d5f32564db04dffa01fb7321ea.jpg

 

A battery powered soldering iron. 

It uses 4 AA batteries, and claims to last to up to 2 hours.

I'm wiring up some 12v computer fans for cooling my mom's greenhouse for the summer (powered by a 12v deep cycle vehicle battery), I can't really bring my soldering station outside so that's why I got the battery powered soldering iron. 

 

That's a latching power button (that I also got today) so all that she needs to do is push it to turn the fans on/off.

 

I'm going to 3D print a holder and mount for the button today. 

 

Here is some temperature charts for alkaline and NI-MH batteries.

Does this work well? i'm looking for a soldering iron that's not too expensive. I don't like the gas ones thought

It works pretty well, no temperature adjustment unfortunately.  Use nickel metal hydride batteries though, and keep a spare charged at all times. 

I'm using lead free solder which requires a lot more heat then leaded, I get about an hour, so I can see two hours for leaded solder. 

 

Unfortunately the tips are proprietary and expensive, and you only get the round tip with the soldering iron, which is my least favorite for wire.

That's the tip that I generally perfer. 

Expect to pay another 20-30 dollars for a tip set.

Per definition this has to be extremely limited. 6W isn't much. So it completly depends on what you solder.

TS-80, TS-100 (older then the ts-80) are more powerful. More universal would be hakko compatible station (t12 tipps) like the oled t12 one from ksger.

 

Note: in the end I decided to spend more and bought a ersa i-con.

I actually only paid 3 cents for the cable ties, had a promo code a couple weeks back.

The price of the Squid Sisters amiibos there is actually good.  They’re usually $100+

the PSU I needed to replace one I have that’s going out.

The R9 290 is for a project, and $60.  According to userbenchmark it’s around 970/RX 480 performance.  Not bad considering a 580 is around $150 new now (and a 480 can be OCed there).

 

The alarm clock is also a wireless charger, so why not. 

 

 

Also, got some steam games. RE7, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, CoD WWII, Terraria, and Bright Memories.

Got a couple friends a Steam game or two, also got my mom some steam games she wanted.  

All during the summer sale

Already miss a few features/quirks from my S8: secure folder, Play Music having access to music outside of an online library, and app drawer.


Yup the yup.

Ordered a Crucial MX500 M.2 1tb SSD today. Going in my second M.2 slot on my Asus Prime X470 Pro MOBO. This will be phasing out my current gaming SSD which is a Kingston 2.5" SSD 240gb. Getting rid of some wires in a few days boys! No more Sata power bundle, or sata to Mobo cable!


My First (Current) Build:

Ryzen 7 2700 (3.90 1.35v OC) | Asus Prime X470 Pro | G.Skill Ripjaws V 16gb 3200 | Inland Professional 512gb M.2 NVME | Cruxial MX500 Sata M.2 1TB | Corsair H115i Platinum | Corsair ML 140 RGB Fans | Fractal Design Meshify C | PNY GTX 1050 (yeah I know lol)

Changes to GPU coming... Super 2060 looking good!

I was just able to pickup a pre-owned gaming laptop. It is an Acer Nitro 5 with a Ryzen 5 2500u, 16 GB RAM, 500 GB SanDisk SSD, and an RX 560X. It was cheap and basically brand new.

Report back when they arrive.  Lot of scam batteries on Amazon.  I always get them local from Menard's price seems similar $5 for a 4pk
