YCX 02L 8×7135, 1 mode, What is this? + wires question

Well today they came(I found them on aliexpress for 2,5$ piece):

I have thought that they are common Nanjg 105C drivers like single stage drivers on intl-outdoors…

But they don’t look like that… Can you guys inspect this and tell your opinion?

They came with 22 AWG wires

There is no Nanjg 105C sign here

Well since they came with 22 AWG wires rated at 80 Celsius what should I do? Should I keep them and not touch anything or to replace them with 18AWG from int-outdoors?

18AWG VS 22AWG wire

I have been think something… I could crimp stock 22 wire at the solder joint and merge it with 18AWG wire use some solder paste + Fujik to secure joint… What do you think? Something like this:

Why not just remove the 22AWG wires and solder the 18AWG wire to the same pads?

I think I will mess it up :)… I have bad soldering iron – it is Hakko 936(clone probably) from ali express and I have great heat transfer issues with smaller tips… Driving me crazy…

This looks much easier to me (krimp 22AWG at the bottom of + – and merge it with 18 AWG, add some solder paste on joint, little touch of soldering iron.

Plenty of guys also claims that there are no benefit of soldering 18AWG wire but I think it can not harm to build and whole thing will be more sturdy. and shock resistant.

A $4 pencil style iron that works is better than a $40 one that doesn't.

About Hakko 936…

Please look here:

http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/234395691.html

Guy has 100% feedback on these… But I assure you that it has heat issues with smaller tips.

Maybe just tips or soldering Iron handle does not work as expected…

Can you guys also recommend better handle and better tips for my Hakko 936 than this one listed on ali express

The heat issue is probably the tips themselves, not the soldering iron.
Unless you need to extend the wires, I’d just leave the 22AWG wires and use them. For an 8×7135 driver, that will be fine.

Welcome the night.

Unless your planning to pimp it up with handsful of chips, 22AWG 16 an excellent gauge for that driver. If it came with 26AWG, I would have told you to switch to 22.

Thanks guys,

So most of you would leave stock 22AWG? Although it is rated only at 80Celsius and less strands…

While the one from Intl-Outdoors has 150 strands rated for 200Celsius…

I thought that this could help to lower resistance, or for some kind of better current/heat transfer for extended periods of times?

And please recommend work proven tips for my Hakko 936… I can only find same tips I got with it…

For now I can only use fat circle like tip.

Search ebay for '936 tips'. Lots of hits, lots of 10-piece assortments of different styles. Tips don't last forever, once they start getting hard to keep nicely tinned it's time to toss them.

I have used ~1.5" long 22AWG silicone wires for nine amps at around 7 volts. Roughly 6 times the wattage as a single XML at 3 amps. 22AWG is fine for most any flashlight that doesn't melt the flesh off your hand after 2 minutes run time.

Even this stock China 22 AWG wire?

Yes I searched already for 936 tips and they are same like mine… I need better quality, and work proven from you experienced guys…

You are overthinking this. Put the thing together.

You're not making sense about the tips. Look here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-900M-T-Replace-Soldering-Iron-Tips-936-937-85...

Are you saying that those 10 different styles are all the same as the one style you already have? Does not compute. Too weird. I'm going to bow out of this one, good luck.

Yes they are exactly the same as in your ebay link and like on aliexpress store http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/234395691.html

They are cheap China tips probably from same manufacturer… Prices vary but they are same.

Maybe I am wrong but I don’t want to buy same low quality tips again.

If it is genuine Hakko 936 tips you want, then search for those and hope that the seller has legit Hakko tips. If you get them from Digikey, they will be legit.

Well you all know how most sellers on planet work this days… Neither of them will say that they are fake tips…

I will try at Digikey then, thanks Wink
