Ever wanted to connect your arduino wireless to your WIFI? Looked at those horribly expensive Zigbee's and thought, way too expensive? Then the ESP8266 is there for you. This cheap Wifi module is perfect for connecting your electronics to your network in an easy way, there's an arduino library available. The benefit of the ESP-12E that is sold here is that you can install the arduino software on the module itself, you don't need a separate arduino board. You get 9 output pins, less than a full Arduino board but enough to connect a device to your network and interact with it (for instance a motor, a pwm dimmer for your leds, a relais). Downside: the holes aren't standard size and spacing, so you cannot solder a standard header to it. Best is to solder the wires directly to the board.

I use this magnifier for electronics work. It does the job well. The led light shines in a perfect angle so that the part you're looking at is always illuminated. The 3 lenses in the box assure that you have the right magnification for what you want to do (and how close you want to look at it. The one downside is the fit, it tends to slide of the head when looking down which can be annoying. I solved this by attaching a small band to the frame.

I have 2 Kuro sets and now this one. So what does this one brings to the table that the other ones don't? The Kuro's have either a fixed bar or you need to put the bar in but then it isn't fixed. With the coil master you put the bar in and then screw a topcap on so that it's fixed. Benefit: takes up less space while still offering a lot of flexibility. The hole to put the wire through is only one sided with the Kuro's, with the coil master you can choose the direction of the coil winding. Can be handy with certain RDTA's. The screws are philips head and not hex: not really a benefit except that I always have a philips screw driver lying around. Because the bars are loose, you can use them for installing the wire on your RDTA's. In the end: I prefer this coil master set above the 2 different Kuro sets.

I got the 4 different ones like in the picture. My personal favorites: batman and superman. Let's compare these with the run of the mill vapebands that you find here: - size: A bit smaller than a regular vape band: 20mm vs 22mm. So these could fit smaller tanks as well - height: 10mm vs 7mm - Thickness: 2mm vs 1.5mm So it's thicker, heigher and smaller, result: good fit with excellent protection on top of the fun design.

If you ever had UD Wire and you let go of the wire for 1 second, then you know why you need these spool tamers. No more wire that suddenly unravels, everything stays nice in place. One small negative point: the width of the tamer should have been 2mm more. But it works great, easy to roll off wire without worrying that it will unravel. Love it.
