Default Has anyone tried AXXIS Solder yet??

Well, I received my solder and IB3800's from axxis-racing last week and just had to start this thread.
I was very impressed to say the least with the solder. In fact I have never used a solder quite like it.
After scuffing the ends of the cells I applied a touch of the special flux to both battery bars and cellends, applied heat and a touch of solder and as soon as the solder touched the flux it seemed to run into the joint.It worked quicker than any solder I have used before.This is a bonus as I have in the past killed the odd cell using the old solders due to too much heat/time.


Also, It is advertised as being of a lower resistance than std rosin solder and this shows in the extra top end and punch of my car last raceday.
I ended up resoldering every joint in my car, wow what a difference.

More than the difference between sport and team pack!

What is your experience with this stuff I'm keen to hear?

Hi

I got it through www.axxis-racing.com

Ask for their silver solder and special flux.

I had the best soldering results ever with this stuff, looked better than most of my professionally assembled packs.

The big thing for me wasnt the xtra speed , it was the fact that i didnt kill any cells for once.

It ships from USA, not sure about aussie stockists.

yup, ive had the same great results using it too. i also like that there is absolutely NO residue to clean up later, the flux evaporates away cleanly.

The Axxis Racing Silver Solder is a 4% 0.031" SOLID WIRE SOLDER.
We decided to go with a solid wire wire solder in order to provide a higher quality product and avoid the usage of ROSIN as a flux.

This solder has to be used with our AXXIS BLUE FLUX.
Our FLUX is non-acidic and it is great to work with.

The SILVER SOLDER and the BLUE FLUX make a great combination for anyone that wants to get the best possible solder connections.

Thumbs up

i too am anxiously waiting for my axxis goo. can't wait to really see how much easier it will be to solder my elctronics. the other thing that makes axxis stand out is how much of an educated answer that you get when you ask a stupid one. watch out people this guy has alot more coming and fast. thanx again isaac for all the time you you put in to your products.

The Much More solder is just as good if not better than the Axxis solder. Plus, you won't have to wait months to get it

I have ordered from Axxis before. Took over 4 months to get my packs - and I was a team driver for Axxis at the time

Axxis doesn't have the best reputation when it comes to meeting timelines
