In this video I build an electronic clock kit! I attempt to do it with a cheap USB soldering iron, but don’t last long before switching back to the Hakko. I also offer a few soldering tips and useful tools and gear.
It’s a decent little clock with animated LEDs, time, date, temperature, and light sensor.
