  • Performs great, though it does shrink 2.5-3mm vs 3.5mm

    posted by Bonejj

    Works like it should, shrinks well and does not melt like other cheaper forms found on other sites. Also no tearing issues as it shrinks.
    I like it, thought don't mistake the 5M for 5m, 5M seems to be the "brand", not the length. It's more like 9 feet, give or take a little. as Mentioned above I would like it to come on some kind of spool but I know I'm asking too much there.
    Overall, works great and I find it fits my needs well. Could be a little cheaper though.
  • I was expecting a bit more

    - Does exactly what it says. You heat it up, it shrinks to about 1.5mm- Easy to cut- Small package so it easily fits into any toolbox (no matter how crowded)- Rather flexible so it doesn't get too damaged while it's packed tight.
    At the end of the day, it work. I'm not sorry I got it, and I think most people won't be either.Just keep in mind that there's some points that could be improved
    If you need to mend a bad earphones cable (or something like that), and you don't want it to look like crap, this will do the trick.
  • Tiny for tight spots

    posted by LittleBitMore

    Tiny, low profile anodised aluminium. Doesn't foul other chips or case.Peel and stick. Eight in one package is a good number as it will suit a number of applications.
    Works well on Raspberry Pi model B for both large chips.I left a heatsink off the regulator as the pins for the reset button are adjacent to the regulator chip and I haven't soldered them on yet.Clean top of chip to be cooled with methylated spirits, allow to dry before applying heatsink. I used a pair of tweezers to place the heatsink in the correct position before pressing down to ensure it was firmly adhered.
    Easy to fit. Works well.
  • Perfect for hobby applications

    It´s cheap,It does it´s job :)Simple to use.I deliberately tried to burn it and it did self extinguish.
    Shipping took a while. More than a month!
    I reccomend this item to everyone who is working a lot with small wires. Just put the cable into the tube and heat it up! Perfect for insulating uninsulated wires and for protecting soldered joints.
  • This thing is addictive!!!

    *Very easy to use*Doesn't deform with high temperatures (and I don't mean continuously holding a blowtorch to it either - its impressive to how much heat it can take)*LOOKS IMPRESSIVE!!!*Cheap and you get a lot of this stuff for the money
    This is just an amazing product to have!!! I mean once you start adding it to whatever project or whichever wires you need connecting, covering or whatever, this thing just adds that professional look to all of it. I mean this thing is just worth it!
    Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to "de-clutter" their projects (or anything for that matter), sheath multiple wires neatly or just give their connectors, wires or projects a "stealth" look - this would definitely do the job - just have to apply heat evenly to the heat shrink tubes! And to make matters even cooler they have a whole bunch of heat shrink tubing of all sorts of sizes!!!
