    Anyone used "wire glue"?

    I happened on to this at Think Geek and wondered if anyone here had given it a go or had any knowledge about it.

Time to bring a little of that microcarbon goodness into your home and make it work for you now. "Wire Glue" Conductive Glue uses microcarbon technology to make a glue that also conducts electricity.

    That's right - no need for solder anymore; now you have Wire Glue! It acts like a glue, it acts like a wire, it tastes like . . . just kidding - don't eat it, and it's stupendously-awesome-incredible. Put simply, it sticks bits together and allows electricity to flow between them. Wire Glue is great for repairing wires, gluing together electronic kits, and really, is a great safe (i.e. no heat) way of introducing children to electrical engineering. Get some now, and get in on the microcarbon revolution early.

    "Wire Glue" Conductive Glue

    * Using the latest advances in microcarbon technology, this glue actually conducts electricity.
    * Lead free.
    * For both AC and DC low voltage circuits.
    * Dries overnight to a super strong hold.
    * Each jar contains 0.3 oz. fl. of Wire Glue

    Ive used it in the past to get to some impossible to reach components. apply a bit to a needle tip and you can reach anything.

    wouldnt advise it for regular soldering needs though. A solder weld is much more robust (if you do it well), not to mention quicker and cheaper.

    glueing leds as they show in the picture there...well...uhmmm....who would want to glue 100 leds that way and wait overnight for the glue to dry ?

    In my opinion only interesting for emergency repairs.

    Thanks Stef. I am not considering it but was just curious about it. I prefer soldering as well, but thought this might be useful in certain applications and repairs as you mentioned.

    what sort of consistancy does it have? Is it like tar or putty?

    As a side note, for very short connections/repairs you can use a rear window defrost repair kit. The kits come with a small jar of conductive paste and are sold in most auto parts stores (at least in the US).
