    Cold Heat Soldering Iron

    $19.99 plus s&H

    A perfect demonstration of the cordless, quick-heat/quick-cool
    application of Cold Heat technology, the Cold Heat soldering tool
    revolutionizes the soldering industry for hobbyists, DIY-ers,
    technicians, electricians, engineers and the military.

    The Cold Heat Soldering tool, winner of the prestigious Red Dot
    international design competition has a number of benefits over the
    traditional soldering iron, including:

    Cordless / battery operated
    Heats and cools almost instantly--reaches 800°F in about 1 second
    Uses 4 replaceable alkaline AA batteries
    Over 700 joints per battery pack
    Very safe--tip hot only during active soldering
    Tip heat indicator (red light)
    Replaceable tip included; other tip shapes available
    Independent lighting function
    Convenient carrying case included

    Don't delay

    Now only $19.99 plus s&H - Limited time offer with bonus case and
    stripping tool

    Works somewhat, but creates poor solder joints. Uses solder to
    complete high current circuit; so it cannot heat the connection first
    for proper soldering.

    Put one in your toolbox right next to that 'magnetic' flashlight that
    is supposed to light when you shake it!

    I read an article not too long ago that there are actually *fake* "shake"
    flashlights that use a small coin cell that apparently provides more than
    enough energy for the very brief period of time most people ever actually use
    such a novelty for. Amazing.

    A good middle or high school science project might be to characterize how
    inefficient various human-powered flashlights/radios/etc. are (winding a
    spring, turning a generator, shaking a light -- in my mind winding the spring
    is probably the most efficient, although perhaps the mechnanical losses are
    great enough that turning a generator directly is as good).

    I believe they are called 'world radios'. You wind them up and the
    internal generator runs the radio for a while.

    Behringer makes a "tube" microphone preamp (Mic 2200 Ultragain Pro)
    that doesn't actually connect the tube. The tube is visible through
    the front panel, and they just put three yellow LEDs behind the tube to
    make it "glow." Funny thing is that they ramp up the LED brightness to
    simulate the tube warming up.

    Don't waste your money on this piece of junk.
    It is almost useless, and certainly not worth
    the space it takes, even if was given to you
    for free.

    Andy I think you're wrong here. The 12AX7 is very much connected in the
    MIC22000 and audio runs through both triodes while the the tube is run
    at 48V. It's a typical mixed design where solid state and tube
    circuitries are combined (even look at Avalon mic pre's). What's wrong
    with having additional LEDs behind a tube - many other companies are
    using the same visual trick. Look at the SOLITUBE mic form AKG, Ampeg,
    Matchless, H&K, etc.
