    How many of you have rushed out to get one of the Cold/Heat soldering irons.
    Runs off of 4 AA batteries WOW! allot of energy in those babies, most likely
    good for one soldering job.

    You smell a troll? I was kinda hoping for some responses.

    I've wondered, too, if anybody tried using one of these gizmos. Maybe they'd
    make soldering those pesky little 0201 resistors easier ;-0

    What in the hell is wrong with Poo shit bear, I was asking a question, ****
    you Pooh shit bear you are the troll.

    You're for real ?

    They've been discussed here many times.

    Basically totally useless for real electronics.

    Uh ? See my full answer !

    The reason you were considered to be trolling is that no-one with s.e.d
    credibilty would even mention that crap here. It belonged elsewhere. It's not a
    *design* issue.

  7. Take it easy on him, please. I think Poo Bear must have been badly
    teased or tickled or beaten on as a kid or something. I am hoping
    that his conversations here, are useful therapy for him. He seems to
    have a good heart, once he trusts you.

    I have enjoyed enough of his posts to overlook his impulse to distrust
    with very little provocation. I'm hoping he gets better.
  8. Oops. I copied the misspelling of Pooh Bear's name.
    No offense intended.

    The " Runs off of 4 AA batteries WOW! allot of energy in those babies " suggested
    to me that this was genuine full-blown troll.

    See my later post. I'm not heartless. Honest !

    I suspect that my bullshit detector is more finely honed than your own !

    Seen that too many times.

    No offence intended.

  11. I saw it as an attempt at humor via sarcasm.
  12. Pooh Bear

    Entirely possible I guess ! ;-)

  13. Non taken.

    It is the honing process you have evidently endured
    that I have probably been spared.

    Trust me ! You don't want to be subjected to some of that stuff ! I could
    elaborate at length. Comparisons to Dilbert and the PHB would no doubt come
    into play.

  15. I believe you, and would be willing to listen to the sad stories.

    But I think you might let some of that go and enjoy yourself more,
    when you are here, among friends.

    The "..allot of energy in those babies, most likely
    good for one soldering job." suggests to me that the OP is considering
    both pros and cons of the tool. "allot of energy" in this context is
    taken as sarcasm, as shown in the "[only] one soldering job" comment.

    I haver a beard trimmer that uses 3 AAs, and they've lasted a couple of
    years so far, not that I spend all that much time trimming my beard. ;-)

    I've also seen a handheld cordless _real_ soldering iron, from Wahl, that
    had a NiCd. I just wouldn't trust one of those little heatless irons,
    because it's just a resistance soldering unit. In fact, I happened on
    a sort of "how to use it" page, and it suggested using the solder itself
    as the resistance medium. Ew! ;-)


    [0]I've corrected your spelling of 'Pooh'. Hope you don't mind. :)

    Yabbut, even so, it sounds like the basis of the humour[SIC] or
    sarcausm[SIC] is that the OP doesn't really expect 4 AAs to have enough
    amp-hours to actually do soldering. I think they would - in another post I
    let on as I've seen a Wahl cordless with one 'C'-sized NiCd, and it did
    real soldering. But I wouldn't trust one of those little "heatless"
    resistance solderers.

  20. Is the spot for Eeyore already filled? ;-P
