This company is making life easier for everyone in terms of soldering needs. Not only do they have a large selection of high quality soldering stations, but they also offer a myriad of tips to suit any soldering job.
Easy Braid Company’s soldering tips are special because they can be cross referenced to other brands’ tips such as Metcal, Hakko, and Weller, and they even have an improved quality compared to their competitors.
The EBM Series of tips from Easy Braid has specified Power Plus tips, meaning they show increased performance without increasing temperature, which then leads to faster soldering overall. This is partially due to the tips’ gold plated ends which improves connectivity to the soldering station and optimizes power transition. The tips also have thicker, denser plating so they last longer than comparable ones.
One would think that all these benefits and improvements in the product line would lead to higher prices, but surprisingly they do not. Easy Braid Company is still beating the prices of their competitors by a considerable margin despite providing a higher quality product. See below for a side by side comparison.
