Works great to repair heated seats in my car!!!!!!
One person found this helpful.
I bought this desoldering tape to repair my heated seats in my car. After reading numerous DIYs and forums, which all recommended this type of wire, I ordered it, and then did the actual repair in one afternoon. This wire is fairly flexible, which is why it is recommended, I believe. It sucks up the solder into itself so you don’t get a big ol’ blob of solder also (which is it’s intended use). So no, I have not used it to repair any kind of circuit board or other electronics, but did fix/patch a broken wire in my car’s heated seat! […] is the most useful instruction on how to repair seats using this product.
Useful for removing small amounts of solder

There is little to say here. If you work on printed circuit boards, you know the need to remove small amounts of solder for component replacement or construction errors. Solder wick is flux-impregnated copper braid that sucks up molten solder in small quantities. It is not useful for removing large quantities of solder from applications other than electronics work.
Desoldering wick for your desoldering needs
Desoldering wick, what would I do without you? I’d use that stupid desoldering gun I have. I hate that thing. Pump, button, pop, and nothing. So annoying to hold the iron and gun at the same time, and a pain to reset again and again. This wick works wonders. Alliteration. I has it. I wish it was a bit cheaper, but that’s only because I don’t like spending money on account of being poor. I think this wick is well worth it though. Damn. Almost more alliteration. I don’t think two successive words count. Not for me, at least. Three or more. That’s how I judge the world.

Worked well enough for me when desoldering some capacitors and paired with a pump, but that’s all I used it for and all that I probably will use it for. It cleaned the pads up of solder fairly well, but did leave some burnt flux on the board. I don’t really care about that, so 5/5.
The most excellent ear bud headphone holder – ever!

Truth be-told, – and this may seem a little stupid at first – I buy this product fro the packaging alone … let me explain … the patented plastic reel this copper wire comes on is the most excellent ear-bug headphone holder ever! All I add is one hole punch from a standard notebook punch for the jack.
Great soldering Wick!
