PROS
helps on difficult to solder surfaces
CONS
avoid the fumes
This stuff is strong. Remove any residue and avoid breathing the fumes when you apply heat. Helps massively to clean difficult to solder or heavily tarnished materials. I don't use it every day, I use https://www.fasttech.com/products/1153800 for that, but if something doesn't want the solder to take I'll put a drop of this on it.

PROS
Great value board
CONS
Voltage regulator.
I'm writing a second review of this product as the specs have changed since my first review. The voltage regulator has been changed for a lower spec one. You can't power as many external components from the VCC pin as you used to be able to. I guess it keeps the price down, but it's a shame as the old one was really rugged. This one is more delicate, I blew 3 of them before I realised what was happening. The MCU gets really hot when you feed it 12V!

PROS
It works (now)
CONS
firmware needs patching on linux
This arrived today, so I plugged it in ready to program the funduino pro mini (https://www.fasttech.com/p/1380906) which was in the same order and... lots of error messages in dmesg. After manually modprobing the ftdi_sio module lsusb showed an id of 0403:0000 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd H4SMK 7 Port Hub That looked dodgy, so a quick google took me to http://binefa.cat/blog/?p=80 I followed the instructions there adapting them to my distro and hey presto, all working, usb ID is now 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC

PROS
good flavour and vapour
CONS
initial set-up difficult, leaks until you learn the knack.
I threw the coil it came with away and built a coil myself. After giving it a good clean and flaming the ceramic cup I filled it up, then all the juice pissed out. As others have said - ditch the o-ring that comes in the top - replace it with one of the black o-rings off the shaft of the chimney. You have to equalise the pressure before using it after filling. I turn it upside down and open the juice control, this seems to do the trick and now no leaks! One other thing I found was with the -ve wire, don't try and trap it under the threaded ring, just wrap it round the wick and it makes good enough contact. Very happy with it now I've got it sussed, I use it for out-and-about on top of the private V2 I got from here as well.
