With the recent surge in Omicron cases, shipping may be slower than stated times. We are working to build, ship and respond to everything as quickly as possible. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.

  • These holders look identical to some I have. I'm not sure of the exact gauge, but the safe current limit is certainly no more than 2A. Many 18650 are intended for bright led flashlights and have current limiting at 2-2.5 A. I use these holders on small robots which draw < 2A.

    If you need higher current, I recommend Li batteries designed for RC hobbies. These will yield much higher current and have suitable connectors. Be aware that RC cells usually have NO internal protection.

  • Wonderfull!! What a great idea! I bought one and use it everyday at my workbench. FAR FAR FAR superior to the old Radio Shack 3rd hand. I now have 5 hands when assembling, wiring, soldering my small robots.

    I recomment buying an extra arm to go with the 2 that ship with the base.

    Yes, screwing the plastic arm into to the aluminum base can be a little tricky. Take your time. You only need to do it once.

  • I bought one based on the video. It's just as they claim, FAR superior to my old 3rd hand from Radio Shack. I thought the guy in the video was a bit theatrical when he tossed his old 3rd hand model in the trash. Nope, he was right. I just deposited my old one in the same receptacle.

  • I must agree. Why is there no pinout???

  • They are all good. But the product tee tells the truth. We are all geeky gadget junkies!

No public wish lists :(
