I'm no gamegear master

I'm not super good at soldering gamegears yet but I've done 2 so far it gets easier the more you do it, the picture below of of the second one I only used a soldering iron, and what's great is the new caps brought the screen and the sound board back to life I plan on screen moddong this gamegear in the future. And I'd also recommend a hot air rework station although it's not necessary ot would make this so much easier.

CAN be installed with just a soldering iron

Got these recently and installed with just a soldering iron, I have decent experience soldering components but haven’t had the most steady hands due to medications from surgery and was still able to get this done. Believe in yourself and you’ll be playing your game gear in no time!

Great kit would recommend

What can I say, easy to install. Great quality! I know they are small but they worked out great for me. I replaced the caps on my mainboard for my Game Gear and my sound board. Now my Game Gear is Great to go for years to come.

Experts Only

I purchased this set expecting to be able to solder them in my old Game Gear and restore it back to its former glory. I was surprised when I discovered just how small the capacitors are in person. If they look small in the photos, theyre even smaller in person. A single capacitor is smaller than a grain of rice. I can't return them because of the $5 return shipping cost. I wish the return shipping was free because the description only mentioned that a soldering iron is required but I can tell you that trying to solder these small capacitors is more trouble than its worth. My soldering skills are not beginner level, instead I am intermediate.

I only recommend this to experts that have a hot air reflow station. Anything else is only an exercise in frustration.
