Desoldering Braid

Solder Wick Desoldering Braid

£3.90
Solder Wick, also known as Desoldering Braid is used in the desoldering of electronic components, and also jobs like removing soldered bridge joints and tidying up mistakes! The material itself is a finely braided copper wire that has been coated with a soldering rosin flux, which helps the solder to flow and be drawn into the wick by capillary action. Even if you are a pro at soldering, we can guarantee that you will find a roll of solder wick super useful to have. How to use: Place the solder wick over the area to be desoldered, apply your hot soldering iron and the solder will be soaked up into the braid. Repeat with a fresh area of braid until the joint is free from excess solder, simple as that (just be careful not to burn your fingers, the braid is conductive so will get hot). As well as removing complete joints, it also works well for small joints that are close together as you can cut the end of the wick at an angle so you have a small, precise point to work with.

Miniware TS80P Smart Soldering Iron with OLED Display

TS80P 30W Portable Smart Soldering Iron

£87.90
The TS80P is the upgraded version of TS80 Smart Soldering Iron. The key improvement is the increased power output; it's up from 18W to 30W. This extra power makes it more capable of soldering bigger power plugs and higher gauge cable. Also now it only takes 11 seconds to reach 350°C, compared to the 18 seconds from the TS80. As before, the soldering iron is powered by a USB Type-C input, which can be provided by charging plugs, power banks and mobile power supplies that comply with PD2.0 (12V 2.5A)/QC3.0 (9V 2A) standard. The other main change is the brand new tip fastener, which provides a better holding experience and an easy push-to-loosen action for changing the tips quickly and safely. Despite the relatively low power of the TS80P, 30W vs. 65W for the TS100, the soldering iron is very capable and performs for most applications just as well as the TS100. Through pure cooper heat conduction and an internal thermal ceramic heating core, it has excellent heat transfer to its tip so a little heat goes a long way. We've used it to solder racing drone PDBs, XT60s and 14AWG wire without issue; just make sure you have enough solder on the tip to transfer the heat. The TS80P iron has a great feel of quality about it, the body of the iron is made of anodised aluminium rather than plastic. It also benefits from an ergonomic grip that helps with soldering precision. As with the TS80 iron, the TS80P has a STM32 microcontroller and utilises open source firmware, which can be upgraded and customised to suit your preferences by connecting it with a PC; you can do all sorts of clever things like creating your own temperatures curves. Other features that have remained the same are the OLED display, which lets you control the iron and see things like temperature status. Its built-in motion sensor also allows the iron to quickly change between stand-by mode and operating temperature, and also automatic power-off mode. This is the TS80P More Package so it comes with extras including a super soft silicone USB-C wire, a ground wire and a Quickcharge 3.0 USB power plug adapter (note it has a EU plug fitting). We sell a carry case for the TS80P separately here. FEATURES: OLED screen, full body CNC aluminium alloy casing Digital temperature readout USB Type-C 0/QC3.0 standard input Power increased from 18W to 30W max Only 8s to heat from room temperature to 300℃ Brand new easy-push tip fastener, one push to loosen tips Builtin smart chip for Port Protection Share same tips with TS80 Built-in accelerometer with STM32 processor will put it to sleep when put down and wake upon picking it up Supports custom programmable development (open source firmware) Please note that TS100 Tips are not compatible with the TS80.
