Cold Heat Soldering Iron

The Cold Heat Soldering Tool
Do you know how to solder a wire? No? Well, that could be a problem. If you're a man, and you don't know how to solder something, people may question your ability to complete other simple, useful tasks -- and then say nasty things behind your back. On the other hand, if you're a woman, you can rack up major points just by saying you can handle a soldering gun. Soldering isn't hard, but conventional soldering irons are hot and smoky. Here's a much better alternative. The Cold Heat Soldering Tool is battery-operated and uses new, patented technology to heat and cool almost instantaneously... by creating heat right where it is needed: in the tip. This light-duty tool is great for electrical repairs, hobbies, and crafts. Uses 4 replaceable alkaline AA batteries. Makes a nice gift too. $20 at Amazon or ThinkGeek.
