Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner Ball - Golden
This SKU 137118 is available in US direct. US: 901137118
When you're soldering, having a dirty tip can greatly impact performance, making any project take more time and diminishing the quality of the finished results. You could use a cloth to clean your tip as you work, but this poses a risk for burns and will cool off your tip to make it temporarily less effective. Instead of water and a cloth, use this Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner Ball to clean your tip in no time. By just inserting the tip into these gold-finished steel coils and then twisting it in place, you'll remove oxidation with ease and without endangering your safety.
This iron tip cleaner ball could be used to clean your hot solder iron tip. The tightly twisted ribbons of golden cleaning curls scrub the oxidation off of the tip of your solder iron without cooling off the tip like a wet sponge will. The curls capture and hold old and contaminated solder residues as it cleans it from the tip of your solder iron. Just insert the hot iron tip into the Copper Wire Sponge with a twisting motion and twist it back out, repeat as necessary, he tip of your solder iron will be bright, shiny, and ready for great soldering results.

    Pros: Doesn't oxidize tip easily like steel wool. Long and wide filaments help maintain shape over time longer than some other models. Was quite compact when shipped, which helped in cleaning the tip. Doesn't leave a residue, and won't destroy like a sponge-based cleaner.

    Cons: None that I can think of.

    Other: A no-brainer to clean soldering tips. With proper maintenance techniques (don't leave soldering iron at full temp for more than two hours at a time, leave a blob a fresh solder on the tip while cooling), it seems to prolong the life of tips.

    Pros: Mais um otimo badulaque da CHINA. Dificil de achar no Brasil... Produto de excelente material e é otimo no que se propõe a fazer, a limpeza da ponta do ferro de solda. Diferente da esponja vegetal ela não é abrasiva entao nao estraga o ferro de solda.

    Cons: Nada a declarar. No comments

    Other: Esponja confeccionada com latão, tornando o fio mais macio, possibilitando a limpeza de itens frágeis, não correndo o risco de os danificar ou riscar. -> Não enferruja -> Não solta fuligem -> Não abrasiva -> Longa Duração

    Pros: Low cost. Simple to use. Good Clean

    Cons: No for this Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner.

    Other: I recommend using a utility such soldering tip if you covered with oxides, aged, or simply for cost of soldering tips. Ditto for all other stings, I think would be a good tool to remove excess tin.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is far less messy than using a water and sponge. I don't like having to have water around my electronics anyways. Cleaning is quick, just dash your tip in the ball a few times and it is scrubbed clean.

    Cons: This needs a holder of some sort. A bit expensive. Near by, I found pack of 3 in just 1.2 usd.

    Other: Good product, try to fine cheaper. Lasts longer than a sponge and is less messy.

    Pros: I don't know what to say: this is just must have item for anybody who has work or hobby related with soldering. Item is convinient and long-lived (I owned it only for a few days but my colleague use the same thing already for 2 or 3 years and he works with solder much enough).

    Cons: What cons could be for it? :) Definitely not any cons.

    Other: Must have cleaning tool for solders.

    Pros: It works! I've been using cleaner balls for a very long time, it's the best way to clean your soldering iron tip without damages. It does'nt need water like the sponges you always find with soldering iron stations.

    Cons: None!!! It works like a charm for a very long time.

    Other: To use with a tip cleaner holder, as spare part. You can buy this item http://dx.com/p/soldering-iron-tip-cleaner-black-34154 and use it when the original tip cleaner has to be changed.

    Cons: This needs a holder of some sort. There are ones for sale or you can just use any shallow holder since these have some weight to them. The sponge holder on most stands works fine for this as long as you aren't too rough.

    Other: Lasts longer than a sponge and is less messy. I can't see cleaning any other way ever again.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I ordered it because I use to solder from time to time electronics devices and PCB. It's easy to use and the size is enough for a long time. The regular sponge to clean the solder tips not always clean it perfect and it's cool the temperature, there for this item is better for my application.

    Cons: I couldn't find, but maybe the price could be cheaper.

    Other: Buy it if you need such item.
