    Agreed, Amtech 559-UV is probably the best one out there... for lead-free stuff.

    For 60/40 Pb stuff, I prefer ammonium nitrate in petroleum jelly - the manufacturer is of no concern in that case.

    Yes, but the caps should reform to ~95% of their actual "health" within the first couple of seconds, or straight up fail after 8 years.

    A paradigm shift and a perception change needs to happen in consumers first. Once people understand just how much power 450W is, perhaps then the industry and the reviews scrutinizing it will move...

    Can't really guarantee I'm correct, probably best if you wait for a couple more answers :)

    I find that a soldering iron also does quite nicely. As far as using electrical tape goes, it's just a quick (and dirty) fix tool, I never did see it as a viable long-term solution to anything.
