  • The description is incorrect. You do not need just a screw driver. There is a third wire (green) that goes to ground that is mounted to the heating element of the soldering iron that i have been unable to detach from the original iron/element.

  • Good to know. I just broke the micro-USB connector off of my first one about a week ago.

    HOWEVER, it appears that the circuit still works if you feed in a regulated 5V to the Charge connectors. I ordered a new one so i could still have a project with micro-USB charging, but the broken one will still be used in other projects connected up to a 5V regulator (with caps) and barrel connector.

  • Do not touch the operational end of the device. Do not look directly at the operational end of the device. Do not submerge the device in liquid, even partially. Most importantly, under no circumstances should you—
    The wrist-pocket really needs an Aperture Labs logo on it.

  • Going to pick up a few of these to detect if the front door of my motel is open. I was going to use a hall sensor or laser trip beam, but this one is shaped just right. Just need a small protrusion on the door to break the beam when the door is closed, and un-obstruct the beam when the door is open.

  • Anyone know where I can get the pin-out connectors shown in the photos? I want to use them with a few projects where soldering wires for breadboard use is a bit difficult.

  • A friend of mine dropped his iPhone 3Gs in water and killed it. (actually it was pickling juice, but it was liquid either way).
    I did what I could but was unable to get it to start back up. He has since replaced it with an iPhone 4, but I still have his 3Gs as parts.
    I would love to find some parts for breaking out the small pinouts (on the touch screen or LCD screen or both, since they are two separate components) into a more Arduino/Breadboard friendly set of connections.

No public wish lists :(
