    3M Scotchlok butt connectors

    I ran across these when they came with my little Noctua fans. Please note they are for low voltage, but standard crimps should be fine.

    Soldering

    Anyone do a lot of solder work?  I've generally not been the greatest at this, but one sister-in-law had brought a number of poorly treated electronic devices that needed some work.  I've soldered a 3.5mm jack onto something that was torn off before, so she had hoped I could fix them.  They've...

    Teardown of the world's worst tablet

    I have to admit I had a good laugh. Who even built these things? How can it even run? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o8MDCIlOEk
