  • ColdHeat Soldering Tool!

    This may not actually belong to the hardware section. But ever since i came across it today I've been drooling over it... So i decided to share:



    The Cold Heat Cordless Soldering Tool utilizes uses a new electrode arc technology developed by the Cold Heat Company.
    Title: Cold Heat Cordless Soldering Tool
    Manufacturer: Cold Heat (www.coldheat.com)
    MSRP: $19.95

    For $20 this is a damn fine tool if you ask me. Certainly beats dragging power cables behind you!@ ThinkGeek has it, or you can get it direct. (ThinkGeek) is not shipping till monday because they're moving warehouses, so if you order now you get -5$ on shipping.

        Yea but for 20 bucks you cant really loose. Plus the portability of it. Worth 20 bucks of my money

          Probably, however both reviews have very good feedback + i just love the thought of portability. Every time I have to run extension cords and bring out my soldering iron to connect 2 wires in my car -> big ugh! Whereas this would solve most problems on the spot. For $20 you cant really go wrong.

                    A buddy of mine at work and I saw this in the paper a while ago. So he bought one. He says it's not that great. He got his off of ebay. He said the tips on it were very fragile.

                      yeah, i would assume the tips are not very dense, which is why they can heat so quickly.

                          If he found that the tips were fragile then he used them to solder. If he did that then he was using it wrong.

                            Well friend of my friends cousins friend... Nah really.. As binary said, it probably is more brittle than your conventional tip, but personally i dont see what exactly do you have to do to break a tip We'll wait and see Should arrive next week!
