    Takes to much time to remove solder

          Comments about RadioShack Desoldering Bulb:

          This thing can get a majority of the solder off a circuit board, but it leaves a bit of the solder on the board. This is just enough solder so I can not take out my components, so i have to spend another five minutes slowly getting rid of the rest.

              Comments about RadioShack Desoldering Bulb:

              I bought one of these in 2006 and I've been using it ever since. The tip is just the right size and doesn't seem to be wearing out no matter how much I use it. Works great on small and large projects alike. It's even easy to clean - the hole in the nozzle is about the same size as a multimeter probe, so you can just poke that in there to clean out the hardened solder when needed.

                      I have a strong electronics hobby and now and then dig trough my circuit box to find some necessary or handy components. This product was a cheap alternative to "ripping them out".How ever, radio shack makes a killing off of it for what it is worth. Buy this ONLY if you are looking for something to, "get the job done" it can become a handy tool time to time. It is a good product overall.

                        This thing works well for its intended purpose. It's great for sucking the solder out of protoboard holes.
                        My only complaint is that it would be nice if the tip was a little more narrow and pointed, rather than being so wide and bulky.
                        Overall though, you get a good, working product for a fair price.

                              It works well for breadboard projects. But that's about it - it is terrible for desoldering small components on a PCB. It's limitations stem from the tip being too fat to get in close to small, tightly packed components.
