Product information "RGB LED - Color changing rainbow LED with slow color transition 5mm"
Probably the most important foundation for a colorful craft project: color-changing LEDs!
The RGBs change color slowly and independently from red to green, blue violet, white, yellow and green. And all without programming. The color transition is very slow, which leads to a nice effect.
The LEDs run on 3V. One CR2032 battery is enough. If you want to run more LEDs, two AA batteries in series are very good.
Some example ideas can be seen in the gallery. The pictures are to be seen as a "serving suggestion". You buy here only one RGB LED.

Dark Side of the Moon... Cat - wonderful simple kit to solder and love - Please don't stare!
Hellooo? Ever heard of privacy? This wonderful kit is very simple in terms of circuitry, but the result is simply hilarious. A cat in a box and whoever watches is stared at. The eyes glow in wonderful rainbow colours. If you press the button, two RGB LEDs on the back light up and make the observer smile bashfully. Now all you have to do is pin it to your jacket and you have the perfect conversation starter. The battery holder, switch and LEDs are hidden on the back. The only unusual thing is that the LED is a THT LED, i.e. a through-hole component. It is soldered to the surface on the back, but lying down. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. So the one hole can shine in all the wonderful colours of the rainbow. All soldering tricks are of course described in the instructions. Note: The gif in the picture gallery is taken with Fast-Forward. Actually the LEDs are much smoother and slower. The kit comes with all needed parts and PCB: PCB Rainbow RGB LEDs Battery holder SMD CR2032 Switch

Fine Dust Sensor Kit - Complete kit compatible with sensor.community
Have you always wanted to build your own fine dust sensor? The citizen science project sensor.community (formerly luftdaten.info) has developed a kit including software that can be used to record fine dust data and, if desired, other data such as temperature, humidity and air pressure.Basic equipmentThis kit consists of all the basic electronic components needed to build the fine dust sensor "AirRohr": The actual fine dust sensor "Nova Fitness SDS011".A WLAN and controller module "NdeMCU v3"All necessary plug cablesA intake hose for the fine dust sensorNow all you need is a housing (you can find some ideas below), a micro USB cable (you can also order this from us) and a simple USB power supply (not included).More sensorsIn addition, the following sensors can be added (not included in the basic version):DHT22: A simple humidity and temperature sensor (no soldering required).BMP180: A slightly better sensor from Bosch for temperature and air pressure (soldering required)BME280: A sensor from Bosch that evaluates temperature, humidity and air pressure (soldering required)InstructionsThe instructions for the kit and all explanations can be found at https://sensor.community/en/sensors/airrohr/.Case ideasThe case is not included. You can let your imagination run wild with the case. The sensors must be protected from wind and weather and there should be openings for the fine dust intake pipe and the other sensors. The original instructions simply use two corner pieces of a drain pipe.

Axolotl Fan Club Badge - A badge for absolute Axolotl fans!
How cool are axolotls? If you're as big a fan as we are, or want to become one, then this badge is just the thing for you. When you have finished soldering the Axolotl soldering kit, the eyes and gills of your Axolotl will glow in all the colors of the rainbow. The best thing is: with this soldering kit you can easily make a great pin, pendant or necklace even as a beginner. You only have to solder 6 components on the back. For those who already know a bit about soldering: The LEDs are THT, i.e. through-hole components. They are soldered to the surface on the back. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. Well, we left one hole to hang the axolotl on a keychain or somewhere else. This way, the axo can shine in all its glory and shine without any flaws.For all those who are not yet that far: don't worry! Detailed and well-tested instructions will guide you through this little soldering adventure.You can find a video of the rainbow colours here: https://youtu.be/xomhgZGvNyQ In the video we show you the front and back of the Axolotl soldering kit. You also get an impression of the animation of the LEDs. In the picture gallery you will also find an animated picture. The animation is normally much slower. The gif is a time-lapse recording.Target groupThe electronic soldering kit is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the unicorn soldering kit, although of course you should not let children solder alone. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. Only 6 components need to be soldered. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable amount of time. And the shape? Axolotl fan club is the best! It's best to order a kit or two at the same time, because as you can imagine, the rocket or unicorn soldering kit is a popular gift for friends, partners or children.The components in the axolotl soldering kitOur kits always contain all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately, we cannot send you the batteries. However, you can get them from hardware stores and larger supermarkets (more on this below under "Tools and accessories"). The soldering kit includes:The circuit boardThe circuit board is the heart of our axolotl. It forms the outline and the place to solder all the components. The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A white coating of varnish is applied on top of it. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects on the exhaust jet and the porthole.RGB LEDsThis is where the magic happens! RGB stands for red-green-blue and describes the different colours of the LED. It looks like one LED, but there are 3 tiny little LEDs that slowly change through an integrated circuit. This gives you all the colours of the rainbow. Look closely, the black dot you find in the LED is the entire circuit! Yes really, so tiny! Just connect 3V and the LED lights up in all colours. There are four RGB LEDs in the Rocket soldering kit.The SMD battery holderThe battery holder for CR2032 batteries is included in the kit in an SMD version. It is soldered onto the surface like the other components. How to do this is described in the soldering instructions. We made sure that the SMD battery holder is very easy to solder on. The battery itself is then simply plugged in. The battery lasts for 4-8 hours of continuous operation. So you should switch off your rocket to save some power. You can get more in any well-stocked supermarket, in hardware stores and Swedish furniture stores.A switchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Needed toolsHow the minimal soldering workplace looks like is described here: The soldering workplace To make the MINT-Labs rocket glow, you need to get one CR2032 battery per rocket at the hardware store or a big supermarket/shop. Also, a pair of tweezers is very helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For the majority of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with the names of the components and the tracks. All instructions are available in German and English. For environmental reasons we do not print our instructions. In fact, it is better to view them on screen, as you can then zoom into the high-resolution photos to see details. On each kit you will find a QR code or link to the instructions.You can find all the instructions as PDF files at the following link: https://binary-kitchen.github.io/SolderingTutorialJust click on "DE" or "EN" for the relevant kit and you can download a PDF.Who are the MINT-Labs?The MINT-Labs Regensburg e.V. is an association for the promotion of STEM education among children and adults. The axolotl is a speical badge for the axo fanclub. The axolotl was developed together with them and therefore proudly bears the name of the MINT-Labs. If you're ever in Regensburg, stop by! If you are a hackspace or a MINT organisation: network :)Lovingly packed for you by handAll soldering kits are lovingly packed for you by hand in Germany.

The Pinecil will definitely be a long-lasting companion for life. The scope of delivery The scope of delivery of the Pinecil v2 is limited to the most important things you need. Of course, the soldering iron itself is included. The latest firmware is already flashed on the Pinecil. There is also a short, pointed soldering tip. The short tip gets hot particularly quickly! A power supply unit or USB cable is not included. Take a look at the accessories in our shop. You need at least a power supply and a cable. Compatible power supplies The hollow plug socket is not protected against polarity reversal! You must make sure that you use a compatible power supply unit. You can find a list from the manufacturer here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinecil_Power_Supplies We recommend only USB-C power supplies with 65W and 20V. (Attention: Many power supplies do not have a real 65W on one port and distribute the power e.g. to two sockets). The original power supply from Pinecil is excellent. Also the power station. Recommended cables It should definitely be a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since it is a soldering iron, a silicone cable is also extremely practical. Silicone cables are heat-resistant and will not break if accidentally touched. Check out our accessories, we have suitable USB cables in stock! Other accessouries There are several other accessories for the Pinecil v2: Mini stand Although you can simply place the Pinecil on its soldering pad, because the tip does not overlap at the front, a small stand with a sponge or metal wool is practical for cleaning the tip. Other tips There are many other tip sizes. From tiny pencil tips to wide wedge tips, all tips can be used. By the way: The Pinecil v1 soldering tips are compatible with the Pinecil v2. Open Source and Community The Pinecil is a community project. This means that many developers have worked together to perfect the piece of hardware and the software. The community has made sure that the components are open source. This means that there is no trade secret about how the soldering irons are constructed. You can simply download the instructions and circuit diagrams from the internet. This has the advantage that a possible repair is also made much easier, since it is clear which components have been used. The community also ensures that the soldering iron corresponds exactly to the wishes and needs of the solderers. A really great piece of hardware. The PINECIL's software is also open source, so it is easy to make adjustments. It is quite easy to create your own temperature curves or programme a specific response. Built-in motion sensors allow the soldering iron to quickly switch between stand-by mode and operating temperature. Differences between v1 and v2 The new version v2 brings a number of new features. Among the most important are: Bluetooth: It is now possible, for example, for a fan control to switch on automatically when the iron is in use. A shorter tip: This makes the soldering iron even easier to hold and it gets hot even faster. Improved power supply: The power supply has been improved and stabilised.

So you should switch off your butterfly when you don't need it to save some power. You can get a refill in any well-stocked supermarket, in do-it-yourself stores and Swedish furniture stores.A SwitchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks in place and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Required toolsHere we describe what the minimum soldering workstation looks like: The soldering workstation To make the butterfly glow, you need to buy one CR2032 battery per butterfly kit at the DIY store or a big supermarket/shop. It's best to buy 1-2 more batteries! A pair of tweezers is also very useful for this kit :). A pair of round-nose pliers will help you bend the wire eyelets and the antennae. But you can also use a normal pair of pliers and a little patience.Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For most of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with the names of the components and the tracks.

The manufacturing is of very high quality. The easily exchangeable tips also make the mini soldering iron flexible to use. However, the price clearly makes it the first soldering iron for a beginner. The Pinecil will definitely be a long-lasting companion for life. The scope of delivery The scope of delivery of the Pinecil v2 is limited to the most important things you need. Of course, the soldering iron itself is included. The latest firmware is already flashed on the Pinecil. There is also a short, pointed soldering tip. The short tip gets hot particularly quickly! A power supply unit or USB cable is not included. Take a look at the accessories in our shop. You need at least a power supply and a cable. Compatible power supplies The hollow plug socket is not protected against polarity reversal! You must make sure that you use a compatible power supply unit. You can find a list from the manufacturer here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinecil_Power_Supplies We recommend only USB-C power supplies with 65W and 20V. (Attention: Many power supplies do not have a real 65W on one port and distribute the power e.g. to two sockets). The original power supply from Pinecil is excellent. Also the power station. Recommended cables It should definitely be a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since it is a soldering iron, a silicone cable is also extremely practical. Silicone cables are heat-resistant and will not break if accidentally touched. Check out our accessories, we have suitable USB cables in stock! Other accessouries There are several other accessories for the Pinecil v2: Mini stand Although you can simply place the Pinecil on its soldering pad, because the tip does not overlap at the front, a small stand with a sponge or metal wool is practical for cleaning the tip. Other tips There are many other tip sizes. From tiny pencil tips to wide wedge tips, all tips can be used. By the way: The Pinecil v1 soldering tips are compatible with the Pinecil v2. Open Source and Community The Pinecil is a community project. This means that many developers have worked together to perfect the piece of hardware and the software. The community has made sure that the components are open source. This means that there is no trade secret about how the soldering irons are constructed. You can simply download the instructions and circuit diagrams from the internet. This has the advantage that a possible repair is also made much easier, since it is clear which components have been used. The community also ensures that the soldering iron corresponds exactly to the wishes and needs of the solderers. A really great piece of hardware. The PINECIL's software is also open source, so it is easy to make adjustments. It is quite easy to create your own temperature curves or programme a specific response. Built-in motion sensors allow the soldering iron to quickly switch between stand-by mode and operating temperature. Differences between v1 and v2 The new version v2 brings a number of new features. Among the most important are: Bluetooth: It is now possible, for example, for a fan control to switch on automatically when the iron is in use. A shorter tip: This makes the soldering iron even easier to hold and it gets hot even faster. Improved power supply: The power supply has been improved and stabilised.

SMD running light - Soldering kit for the proper learning of soldering SMD components
With this kit you can easily learn the right SMD soldering, as this kit has many different SMD components.The running light is achieved by a circuit of a clockgenerator NE555 (U1) and two shift registers TI4017 (U2, U3). The NE555 uses the clock signal to shift one bit through both shift registers. At the end the circuit is reset and the cycle starts anew. The outputs of U2 controls the 20 LEDs (D1-D20). Since the TI4017 only has 10 outputs, one output controls two LEDs. U3 controls one transistor each (Q1, Q2) using two outputs, which alternately pull D1-D10 or D11-D20 to GND. This process repeats itself.The kit comes with all the necessary components and PCB:BoardSwitchResistors and LEDsClock NE555, shift registers, transistors etc.Battery holder

Dino - From a time long gone, this soldering kit glows in all the colours of the rainbow
From a time long gone, this friendly dino greets us with his rainbow scales on his back. kunkelkunst, Taxxizz and x70b1 (yes, those are all their nicknames) have designed and created this great soldering kit. There are four LEDs on the back that make the scales glow in all the colours of the rainbow. The best thing is: with this soldering kit you can easily make a great pin, pendant or necklace even as a beginner. You only have to solder 6 components on the back. For those who already know a bit about soldering: The LEDs are THT, i.e. through-hole components. They are soldered to the surface on the back. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. Well, we left one hole to hang the dinosaur on a keychain or somewhere else. This way, the RGB dino can shine in all its glory and shine without any flaws.For all those who are not yet that far: don't worry! Detailed and well-tested instructions will guide you through this little soldering adventure.A video of the rainbow colours can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8JFJ-eYq9o Of course, it looks much better in real life :).

The OwlThief - A Golden Owl with Glowing Orange Eyes (Joul Thief circuit in THT version)
The gold-black owl with bright orange eyes is a simple soldering kit with the right WOW effect!A self-wound coil on the back ensures with a few other components that even dead batteries still give the last and two orange LEDs in the eyes of the owl to light up. The circuit is based on the so called Joul-Thief circuit and therefore our owl is named OwlThief.The eyes of the owl and also the circuit board is a real eye-catcher. The gold plated front is not pierced at any point by a hole for the THT components. The outline of the owl and its wings and feathers are perfectly printed. Instead, the components are soldered onto the back. What is special about the Paltine is that both THT and SMD components work. This is the THT version with the slightly larger and easier to solder THT components. Of course everything is perfectly described in our instructions! Attention: The batteries are really used to the absolute minimum. Please do not use rechargeable batteries! These will be destroyed.The battery is inserted into a battery holder at the bottom of the board. This makes the owl stand on its own and watch over you with its Orange LED eyes. A beautiful board perfect for the desk or nightstand. A quick touch to its head and the switch will light it up.What exactly does a joule thief do?The name Joule thief is a pun on jewel thief and is meant to illustrate that the circuit squeezes ("steals") the last bit of electrical energy out of a battery that is already useless for other purposes, with the term joule standing for the name of the unit of energy.The circuit was published in 1999 by Z. Kaparknik published. The circuit was so simple and so elegant that it hit like a bomb. Since then it has been used in many variations in various kits.The circuit works in such a way that the low voltage still available in the battery is converted to a higher voltage. The self-wound coil on the OwlThief stores the necessary energy periodically magnetically. This energy is used to then induce the higher voltage and the LEDs light up. This happens so often that it looks to your eye as if the LED is permanently lit. We also added a special Z-diode and a capacitor to ensure that the LEDs do not break.The owl in the mediaOur JoulThief owl even made it into the media! The IT news website heise-online reported about our owl:: Kreatives Platinendesign: Mach's ein bisschen hübscher! Target groupThe electronics kit for soldering is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the owl soldering kit, although you should of course not let children solder alone. We wanted to create a little focus on resources with this kit and how much energy is still in many an empty battery. Relatively large components are used, making it easy to learn how to solder. There are 9 components to solder on. This can be done in a reasonable amount of time even by absolute beginners. We also want the kit not to disappear in the drawer after finished soldering and initial playing. That's why we chose an owl soldering kit, which looks really great as a work of art in your own room. Due to the clever arrangement of the battery, the board stands upright by itself. It's best to order a kit or two at the same time, because the owl makes a perfect gift for friends, family, and siblings. Who does not want to have his own light owl? :)The components in the OwlThief soldering kitIn our kits are always all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately we can't send the batteries with the kit. We have installed a AA or Mignon battery holder, these are the most common batteries in the household and there should be enough "empty" batteries. The soldering kit includesThe circuit boardThe circuit board is the heart of the owl. It forms the outline and the space to solder on all the components. The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. On top of that comes a black lacquer layer. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects in the eyes of the owl. You will also find two areas on the board: THT and SMD. Only one area has to be soldered on each. Because of the two areas you have the choice if you use SMD or THT parts. To make soldering a little bit easier, we send you THT parts.The coilOn this solderboard the coil is really the heart. A ferrite core and two about 30cm long wires are wound as described in the instructions and this results in a coil that is exactly suitable for this circuit. At the end the coil has to be soldered to the board with four solder pads. Do not be afraid of this step. We have described everything with high resolution pictures and in the text in the instructions.Some "chicken" or "owl" foodThis time we won't send you any chicken food. Chicken food jokingly refers to all the smaller components. In this kit we have a resistor, a capacitor, a Z-diode and a BC547 transistor. If you want to know more about the components, you can read a bit on Wikipedia. We have linked you to the respective Wikipedia entry. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to send us an email. We are happy to help!Orange LEDsTwo orange LEDs on the back provide the magic eyes of the owl. The circuit sucks the last energy from the batteries and pushes the electrons towards the LEDs. Through the slightly transparent circuit board, the LEDs shine through to the front and make the owl's eyes glow.The AA battery holderThe battery holder for AA or Mignon batteries is included in the kit and is placed on the bottom edge of the board so that the center of gravity is at the feet of the owl. This way the owl stands on its own and does not need an extra stand or to lean against. By the way, there are also adapters from AAA or micro batteries to the battery holder used here.A switchOf course, there is also a switch included! The switch is easy to use and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks in place and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great noticeable "click" provides tactile and audible comfort.Required toolsHow the minimal soldering workstation looks like we describe you here: Der LötarbeitsplatzIn addition, a pair of tweezers is especially helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have built a detailed instruction with many pictures and single steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For most of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with names of the components and the traces. All instructions are available in German and English.For environmental reasons we do not print our instructions. In fact, it is better to view them on screen, as you can then zoom into the high-resolution photos to see details.

Rainbow Rocket - A soldering kit out of this world
Launch your own rocket! With the MINT-Labs rocket soldering kit you can make a beautiful glowing necklace. Once soldered, the porthole and the exhaust jet, the tail of the rocket will glow in all the colours of the rainbow. The best thing is: with this soldering kit you can easily make a great pin, pendant or necklace even as a beginner. You only have to solder 6 components on the back. For those who already know a bit about soldering: The LEDs are THT, i.e. through-hole components. They are soldered to the surface on the back. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. Well, we left one hole to hang the rocket on a keychain or somewhere else. This way, the rocket can shine in all its glory and shine without any flaws.For all those who are not yet that far: don't worry! Detailed and well-tested instructions will guide you through this little soldering adventure.A video of the rainbow colours can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8JFJ-eYq9o Of course, it looks much better in real life :). The animation here in the pictures is a time-lapse recording.Target groupThe electronic soldering kit is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the unicorn soldering kit, although of course you should not let children solder alone. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. Only 6 components need to be soldered. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable amount of time. And the shape? This is rocket-scienece! It's best to order a kit or two at the same time, because as you can imagine, the rocket or unicorn soldering kit is a popular gift for friends, partners or children.The components in the rocket soldering kitOur kits always contain all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately, we cannot send you the batteries. However, you can get them from hardware stores and larger supermarkets (more on this below under "Tools and accessories"). The soldering kit includes:The circuit boardThe circuit board is the heart or hull of the rocket. It forms the outline and the place to solder all the components. The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A white coating of varnish is applied on top of it. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects on the exhaust jet and the porthole.RGB LEDsThis is where the magic happens! RGB stands for red-green-blue and describes the different colours of the LED. It looks like one LED, but there are 3 tiny little LEDs that slowly change through an integrated circuit. This gives you all the colours of the rainbow. Look closely, the black dot you find in the LED is the entire circuit! Yes really, so tiny! Just connect 3V and the LED lights up in all colours. There are four RGB LEDs in the Rocket soldering kit.The SMD battery holderThe battery holder for CR2032 batteries is included in the kit in an SMD version. It is soldered onto the surface like the other components. How to do this is described in the soldering instructions. We made sure that the SMD battery holder is very easy to solder on. The battery itself is then simply plugged in. The battery lasts for 4-8 hours of continuous operation. So you should switch off your rocket to save some power. You can get more in any well-stocked supermarket, in hardware stores and Swedish furniture stores.A switchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Needed toolsHow the minimal soldering workplace looks like is described here: The soldering workplace To make the MINT-Labs rocket glow, you need to get one CR2032 battery per rocket at the hardware store or a big supermarket/shop. Also, a pair of tweezers is very helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits.

Technical data Power 88W Temperature range 100-400 °C Heating time ~12 s Tip system activ ESD safe yes Automatic standby yes, time and temperature adjustable Display 0,69'' white OLED monochrome display (96x16p) Processor 32-Bit RV32IMAC RISC-V "SiFive E24 Core" @ 144 MHz Memory 192 KB Flash, 132 KB SRAM Power supply USB-C, DC5525 Dimension 155mm with soldering tip / 103mm without x 12.8mm x 16.2mm Weight 28g with soldering tip and 18g without soldering tip Target Group The soldering iron is the perfect tool ranging between consumer and professional use. The manufacturing is of very high quality. The easily exchangeable tips also make the mini soldering iron flexible to use. However, the price clearly makes it the first soldering iron for a beginner. The Pinecil will definitely be a long-lasting companion for life. The scope of delivery The scope of delivery of the Pinecil v2 is limited to the most important things you need. Of course, the soldering iron itself is included. The latest firmware is already flashed on the Pinecil. There is also a short, pointed soldering tip. The short tip gets hot particularly quickly! A power supply unit or USB cable is not included. Take a look at the accessories in our shop. You need at least a power supply and a cable. Compatible power supplies The hollow plug socket is not protected against polarity reversal! You must make sure that you use a compatible power supply unit. You can find a list from the manufacturer here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinecil_Power_Supplies We recommend only USB-C power supplies with 65W and 20V. (Attention: Many power supplies do not have a real 65W on one port and distribute the power e.g. to two sockets). The original power supply from Pinecil is excellent. Also the power station. Recommended cables It should definitely be a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since it is a soldering iron, a silicone cable is also extremely practical. Silicone cables are heat-resistant and will not break if accidentally touched. Check out our accessories, we have suitable USB cables in stock! Other accessouries There are several other accessories for the Pinecil v2: Mini stand Although you can simply place the Pinecil on its soldering pad, because the tip does not overlap at the front, a small stand with a sponge or metal wool is practical for cleaning the tip. Other tips There are many other tip sizes. From tiny pencil tips to wide wedge tips, all tips can be used. By the way: The Pinecil v1 soldering tips are compatible with the Pinecil v2. Open Source and Community The Pinecil is a community project. This means that many developers have worked together to perfect the piece of hardware and the software. The community has made sure that the components are open source. This means that there is no trade secret about how the soldering irons are constructed. You can simply download the instructions and circuit diagrams from the internet. This has the advantage that a possible repair is also made much easier, since it is clear which components have been used. The community also ensures that the soldering iron corresponds exactly to the wishes and needs of the solderers. A really great piece of hardware. The PINECIL's software is also open source, so it is easy to make adjustments. It is quite easy to create your own temperature curves or programme a specific response. Built-in motion sensors allow the soldering iron to quickly switch between stand-by mode and operating temperature. Differences between v1 and v2 The new version v2 brings a number of new features. Among the most important are: Bluetooth: It is now possible, for example, for a fan control to switch on automatically when the iron is in use. A shorter tip: This makes the soldering iron even easier to hold and it gets hot even faster. Improved power supply: The power supply has been improved and stabilised.
