I'm using a 30 watt soldering iron I picked up for $5. Has a pointed tip that is pretty small on the end. The sporting paste is the key. It melts at a lower temperature and has a no clean flux. Still have to be really careful. One tip that I've learned, the new charge port, bend the 5 contacts down slightly before soldering. Enough so that when you place it on the board and solder the post that hold it to the board will have them pressed down... Makes it easier when soldering them. Forgot to do that on the last one and it really made it difficult to get them to connect. As they would spring up off the board.

The other logic board is dead, d e a d dead. Don't know how nor why. :-\  :-(  This morning I took the board from my tablet with the cracked digitizer to replace the dead one. Means I'm one tablet down. But all the other 4 are up and running. Really puzzles me why the other died during a bluetooth download.

Hmm I really wanna give thst a try someday. How did you get the old ports off?

That is weird that it died like thst but maybe it was just coincidence or perhaps the circuitry going to the BT device had a short thst fried everything.

I don't know, really puzzles the fuck out of me. I may mess around with it but probably just keep for parts. Always nice to have a spare battery.

I just heated the post with my soldering iron. With a little pressure underneath at the PCB edge. I'd suggest, if you can afford it to buy a heat gun, flux cleaner, cleaning wire and soldering paste. A pair of magnifiers is a plus also. I wore three pair of glasses for a magnification over 15 to see.

You can get an entire soldering station on eBay or amazon for around low end of $70 to over a couple thou for commercial setups. I'd be tempted to buy a step above low price and advertise on eBay.

Out if work actors have to do something to fill those long periods of doing nothing. Especially when you're a nobody.
