Nice soldering iron, so useful. Can kill USB ports, tests cables for opens and even can be used as a torch.


As a soldering iron it is just the one thing it is not capable of........

Oh, oh.. let's not forget the very safe "9V-battery-straight-to-micro-USB" adapter which comes in handy for powering your expensive USB stuff. Once.

ahhh when I went to electronic school they said V=IxR and P=VxI so max USB V = 5, I = 0.5 So P = 5 x 0.5 P = 2.5W so how can you pull 40W out of 2.5W it just does not calculate. ::)
