Works wonderfully. the base is nice and heavy, and the magnets are really strong
Love it! I didnt need 4 arms, but I use them, I just load up the second set and get twice as much done at a time. Easy to assemble, the light has 2 settings, magnifier is strong. If I had anything I would change, I would include a charger plug, this comes with a USB terminated cord for the light. No biggie, it can use any USB phone charger, handles a 2A one fine.
Love the light.The magnifying glass.The alligator clip arms are good, but they seem to untwist from the base a bit easily -- I might not have tightened them properly when I assembled it.My only real complaint is the rubber alligator clip covers could be a bit more heat resistant.I have melted several because they were holding a wire too close to where it was being soldered.If I were working on only smaller electronics with a smaller soldering pen, this may not have happened, but it would be nice if it werent a concern at all. The alligator clip holders are easily rotated, but they do come loose if you dont tighten them into a position--but that makes future adjustments of those a bit harder.The arms cant hold heavy weight -- a 12 ga wire needs at least 2 to hold it steady to whatever its being soldered to. But, I love it.The base is sturdy and easy to clean.The arms move into almost any position I want.Im not really comfortable using the magnifying glass while soldering yet, but I use it all the time for checking small and dim markings on chips, or looking at what Im soldering right before I start to make sure everything is aligned correctly. I do nearly all my soldering with this workstation now.
Purchased this as a gift for a friend but he loves using it. He's finished a lot of his projects using this.
