This is the black version of our Geeky take on Dia de los Muertos, the The Day of the Geek soldering badge kit.

This simple kit shouldn't take much more than 5 minutes to assemble if you have basic soldering skills and equipment. We've included 3 pairs of coloured LEDs so you have the option of Red, White or Blue eyes.

We've taken the Day of the Dead motif and replaced many of the elements with a more geek orientated look.

We don't include a CR2032 battery as the Royal Mail will not carry them so if we included one your package would have to ship by DPD increasing the shipping costs. If you want to add one you can do above but please be aware you will NOT be able to use Royal Mail shipping.

Included:

  • 1 Skull PCB
  • 2 Red LEDs
  • 2 Blue LEDs
  • 2 White LEDs
  • 1 CR2032 Battery holder
  • 1 Pin back

Not Included:

  • CR2032 Battery (you can select one above)
  • Soldering Iron
  • Solder
  • Pliers
  • Flush cutters

Very good quality

I love these. They're high quality and simple for catching the imagination of people who aren't necessarily into 'electronics' and getting them confident with soldering irons.

Looks even better in real life. Bigger than I expected, and the detail is excellent.

Easy and fun solder kit
Tuesday, 25 July 2017  |  Jarle

Great value for money BUT the pin / fastener comes off easily even when using 'full lead solder / flux'

Response:

Hi, Thanks for the feedback! I've not tried with leaded solder buit have with leadfree with a flux core and it holds fine but there are a couple of tricks, flooding the pad first and holding the pin down using pliers then heating the pin with an iron until the solder flows (you need a good hot iron for this). We have already made a small change to the kit and gone for a pin with a smaller base diameter which has a smaller thermal mass making it easier to solder and means you can also add more solder to create a good strong join.
