resistor, diode, transistor, regulator, speaker, microphone, display etc. A 50 watt soldering iron is good enough for most mobile phone repairing job. When buying a soldering iron, select the one that is easy to hold and does not burn you hand. The soldering iron must have option to choose and select different types and shapes of soldering tips or bits. These tips or bits must be replaceable. It must also be ESD-Safe (Antistatic) because most electronic components in a mobile phone are very sensitive and can get damaged due to static charge or static electricity. Hakko and Weller are two world renowned brands who manufacture, sell and export world class soldering irons and other soldering tools and equipments.

iron. It has option to control temperature depending on the heat requirement of the soldering job being done. The soldering iron is attached with the soldering station. It is better and more convenient than traditional soldering iron. It makes soldering work much easier and faster. When buying a soldering station for mobile phone repairing one must always select an ESD-Safe (Antistatic) model. Hakko and Weller are two world renowned brands who manufacture, sell and export world class soldering irons and other soldering tools and equipments.

PCB Holder / PCB Stand: A PCB (Printed Circuit Board) holder or PCB PCB Holder

or jumper. Composition of most solder wire is Tin / Lead in the ratio 60:40 or 63:37. Since the introduction of RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) from electronics, more and more companies are using lead-free solder. Lead-free solder wire is available in many compositions but the most common composition is Tin / Silver / Copper in the Ratio 96.5:3.0:0.5. Solder wire is available in different diameters such 2.0mm, 1.5mm, 1.0mm, 0.5mm, 0.2mm etc. For mobile phone repairing 0.5mm solder wire is best suitable. Kester is a world renowned manufacturer and supplier of solder wire and other soldering material.

Thinner or PCB Cleaner: Thinner or PCB cleaner is used to clean the PCB of a mobile phone. The most common PCB cleaner used in mobile phone repairing is IPA or Isopropyl Alcohol. It is important to buy only good quality PCB cleaner as poor quality PCB cleaners can damage the board.
