Didn't use toxic heat resistant materials, like the cheap oven ones (no leathal asbestos) which has no alternative at this price! can be used by simply pressing the button, considering i'm a stickler when it comes to minimalising the use of mobile phones... i found it to encourage 'a dab hand' approach, first uses being carefully done, to then a real rewarding sence of confidence in being able to slightly mess about with the thing (as solid rewards.) Deserves a better postal sytem, but who doesn't? remember to be nice to the posty....thats what makes the posty nice to you! EVERYONE THAT GETS ONE OF THESE THAT WORKS, IS A WINNER!
I've been using this little beast for a few months now and frankly I'm impressed. I've reflowed dozens of boards and I'm not even tempted to use my reflow oven for single sided boards. Sure the android app is a little wonky, and the sheet metal enclosure isn't Apple perfect, but for 129 bucks plus shipping the ReflowR is an amazing deal. Stop dithering and just order one.
This is my first time at reflow having stuck to the traditional soldering iron and I have had great success. The unit is uncomplicated and performs as it should. I used the inbuilt profiles and successfully reflowed some xson (3mm x 5mm) chips and other just as small items. The owner responded to all my questions on reflow in general and just not about the reflowr which was greatly appreciated.
As an aside I received the reflowr in half the shipping time that was quoted.
