Hi, friends. I know how difficult it is to make electronic devices without soldering iron. But no matter.

Today I;m going to show you how to make world's simplest soldering iron. It's easy to make and great for backup tool works and in emergency.

For this we will need:

1. A lighter

2. A copper or steel wire

P.S: You can use any kind of wire which can absorb heat quickly.

3. Tape

Supplies:

Step 1:

Just watch the video....

Step 2: Tips

* Use wires made of steel instead of copper. It absorbs more heat.

Note: Use the following instructable only when it is emergency. It is not effective in small joints.

    Hey, Mr. Crazy person. What's the reason behind it's inefficiency? Please share it with me. I know you are more experienced with making instructables. And this is only my first one!

    bcz the heating is not uniform and it takes more time to solder than a soldering iron

    Who cares about efficiency here? The point is that it can be really useful in some situations where you're outside and don't have any tool with you.

    I think it's brilliant, thanks a lot for sharing this great trick!

    Well, it would have been useful to me a few months ago. My electric scooter stopped running in the middle of nowhere because of a wire harness issue, if I had known this technique at that time I wouldn't have had to push my machine 5 kilometers back to my garage. And this is just one example among dozens of others I had in my life.

    Really don't understand what point you're trying to make here. But if you have a better way, feel free to share it.
