RPi Proto - Solder Sucker (Pump) - Anti-Static Tip
Yes, solder sucker is the official name! This 'desoldering vacuum pump' is used to clean up little soldering mistakes!
This one's metal, not that horrible plastic, so it will last longer, look nicer and more importantly, work! It also features an Anti-Static Tip which will protect sensitive components during the desoldering process!
How does it work?
Simply press the piston into the vacuum (which will engage it), heat up the piece of solder you want removed until it's molten, hold the tip of the solder sucker as close as possible to that solder, and press the side button to suck it up! The remaining solder can then be cleaned up using some wick!
