This product is cheaply made.
Kristin
The threads holding the top plastic piece in the aluminum barrel are very small and not up to the job of holding this thing together while being used.
Dave Kreskowiak
It had no problems sucking the solder off the board.

I was reluctant to purchase this item due to all the negative reviews. Since all the other solder suckers also have all these bad reviews, I decided to purchase this one and try it out.

I am not certain what the bad reviews are about. There seems to be two complaints. I want to address those with my experience.

1: Does not suck the solder off the board.

I used this several times to repair a LCD monitor. It had no problems sucking the solder off the board. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the solder sucked off the solder point. After reading the bad reviews, I was expecting a lackluster job but it was cleaner than a solder braid.

I can only surmise that the people who are having problems are not jamming the tip right up against the lead and the soldering iron tip. Don't worry about burning the teflon, it will be fine as long as you are not holding it against the soldering iron for several minutes.

2: Device Jams from solder

Again, I was pleasantly surprised after a few solder joints were sucked clean, when I recharge the unit, it discharged a film of solder. Apparently this unit is self cleaning. Perhaps there was a problem with previous designs. My experience is that the solder is ejected when you recharge the unit.

I think one of the problems that can cause this unit to jam is if you do not jam the tip right up against the lead, iron tip, and board. The solder is only partially sucked into the device so some of it gets stuck in the tip, jamming it.

If this device is used properly, the solder is sucked clean off the board and then ejected after a few uses.

Anyone out there wondering if they should buy this, I would highly recommend it.

I never thought I'd have a reason to use a de-soldering pump, but recently I found myself disassembling the power supply of an LCD TV. The TV manufacturer had placed inferior capacitors on the circuit board of the power supply and after 2 years, the TV would not turn on. After much research, I found that I could swap out the bad capacitors myself and save a ton of money. So I purchased the desoldering pump to help remove the old solder from the circuit board by vacuuming up the hot solder so that the capacitor can be replaced. Though I had no experience with circuit boards, I was able to complete the task successfully, and the TV now works like new. The desoldering pump worked perfectly, and I can honestly say, "This product sucks!"

This one works ok, but I found this pump to get clogged with hardened solder easier than other pumps I've used. Maybe mine has a defect or something but it seems that the suction isn't quite what it needs to be to get the solder all the way into the base. Instead it will sometimes get stuck in the rubber tip and after 4 or 5 joints will clog the tip up so the cleaner bar won't go all the way in and you have to take it apart and clean it out to do more.

I knew this product would be fairly cheap, but it broke after one use. The top half of the Solder Sucker is plastic and it threads into a metal bottom half. This connection point is bad and it just breaks apart. I guess I can just tape it together. I don't understand why they don't just make the entire thing plastic.

Haven't used it very long, but it's solid and sucks solder as well as the $20 weller model so far

I bought this one from Rat Shack since I needed a desoldering tool right away, but I wouldn't recommend it. It works, but just barely. Two reasons it's not good: the pump barrel just isn't large enough to move a sufficient volume of air to pick up enough solder. Also, when you release the plunger the pump "recoil" makes it hard to keep the tip on the work. Get the Edsyn Soldapullt® Deluxe Desoldering Pump instead. It has a much larger barrel and doesn't suffer from the recoil problem.

I've always wanted a good solder-sucker. I still do. This isn't it.

It does pull up some solder, but never really seems to clean the joint enough to be able to easily pick the component off the board. For instance, a small fuse-holder I was trying to salvage from a single-sided PCB: I used a 140 watt Weller soldering gun (overkill) and heated the joint until solder was running off the board. While continuing to heat the joint, I placed the cocked sucker (no pun intended) against the tip of the gun and pressed the trigger. Some of the molten solder disappeared, but not nearly enough to free the part. After repeated tries, I had sucked up enough solder to let me remove the part with pliers, but enough remained to make it difficult. By that time, my thumb was tired from cocking the tool. One component.....

Salvaging/removing other components from various types of boards convinced me that this tool was going to be of limited usefulness.
