Wire Glue: A Conductive Solder Replacement In a Jar

Tired of frying your hands with blobs of molten hot solder?  I've had my share of this, primarily because I'm just plain not very good with tools.

Wire Glue may have you waving goodbye to those blobs of lava.

Wire Glue not only sticks things together, but also conducts electricity.  This is accomplished using microcarbon technology that allows the glue to conduct low voltage AC and DC currents.  It dries overnight and is lead free.

Just think of the benefits of this little, tiny jar.  You could repair your flashlight or radio while camping-no electricity required!  It would also make it easier to hold two wires together for attachment, as the soldering gun wouldn't be in the way.

Or, if you're like me, you'll use it just to avoid getting your fingers fried by solder.

Of course I already know that I'm gonna glue my fingers together...

Get your very own Wire Glue at  Amazon!

No resistor in that LED circuit? Um...

This is a just a proof of concept

Maybe the resistor is build in the LED!

It does exist and this is just a concept picture for his blog.

I hope

this works because I just went and bought some on ebay...better price with shipping option...I don't like UPS Ground...USPS First class was a better option for me

Uhh...

First off..

AA Batterys - 1.5v/each * 2 = 3v

Why would he need a resistor for such a simple proof of concept?

BTW, wal-mart has had this "wire glue" for like $3 a can. Its called electrical tape in a can or something like that. Never bought because a soldering iron is so much quicker with heat shrink tubing, but I see the use of this in quick projects instead of heating an iron... but twist the wires together and rape is just as cheap.

electrical tape in a can is

electrical tape in a can is an insulator not a conductive glue

OHHHH

AA Batterys - 1.5v/each * 2 = 3v yes!!
BUT!! LED is a DIODE!!. a diode works with current not voltage!! always use a resistor curren limit!

omg! its gonna explode! none of us have ever powered a led from 2 aa batterys without a resistor before!

biquad

What about making a biquad antenna. Much simpler to paint an antenna in perfect dimensions rather than trying to bend a copper wire.
