That's what kills me. 76 USD the shipping + local taxes (30% of the payment)

God damn it man! That’s 700% mark up. Imma quit my job and start smuggling electronics to Colombians!

Where else can you buy an RCMx86 that won’t break the bank?

$16.17 to my door.

Makes me wonder how many of these chips I could comfortably fit up my ass and still walk through an airport…

Can I recommend for most people, a RCM jig and a Android Phone will do.
Or the classic RCM Loader. Easy and just works!

I do understand Bink and crew that wanna solder one, but no one got the time for that ;D

☝️ I 💯% support this statement! ☝️

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a jig + PC.
The Trinket mod is not for 99.9% of the readership.
There is a chance you can fuck up your Switch doing it.

I have a few irons of varying quality. Technique is more important than the make/model of iron (as long as it’s not utter crap!)

For this job I just used my Weller WP35. It’s a solid low power basic iron with a variety of tips. Nothing to write home about. Power isn’t adjustable but it‘s not that heavy duty to matter. I wouldn’t use it for a larger project where i needed to do a lot of larger components quickly. For that I’d probably use the one attached to my Hakko rework station but that’s way overkill for what you’re doing here.

Bottom Line: you can’t go wrong with Hakko or Weller. After that, the discussion can get pretty contentious and religious. Check out the reviews on eevblog

As always the things on matter of teaste could go to war of opinions. Will try to get a weller or invest on a hakko rework station. Hope later I will need it and it's better have since now.

Thanks a lot.

Pd. Yes the one I ordered it's a piece of garbage. So much what Amazon return me the money

Hey man…two questions!
  1. Did everything work?
  2. Did you have to sell a kidney to import a soldering iron?
(Please don’t tell me we’ve lead you down a bad path and you’ve blown up your Switch. I would feel awful.)

no buddy, far now I manage to get a HAKKO on the way, but will be retired of DIY for the next month, a travel for work so out of house for a while.
