flipsky sw1 spot welder

saw @Lee_Wright video but was wondering in the long term how this was?

did it get hot after a lot of welds

did anyone have issues with it out the box (like flipsky stuff)

any other issues people should know

thanks a lot and thought it might be worth discussing here like the malectrics and kweld threads

Good question but oh God

But 250 bucks - it’s a kWeld price here in Europe
The only thing he actually told - the electrodes are awesome. Can’t you just use them with Malectrics? (buy separately)

kweld is out of stock till end of the month and would be interesting still to consider it cause it has the pen which seems awesome

thanks for trusting in me

Have you considered Malectrics instead? They are less expensive than either the kweld or the flipsky, and a couple reputable battery builders use them.

they are 2 issues i see are first they dont offer the welding pen which is just a nice add on feature

second they dont ship to uk atm because of brexit

Ah, that sucks. Personally I’d still wait for the kWeld in that case – if you decide to sell it later you’ll probably recover more money. If you do decide to go for the Flipsky though, let us know how it goes! :slight_smile:

My Kweld has treated me great so far but I wish I had two batteries in parallel, they heat up pretty fast

You know you could buy the pen separately and use it with any welder.

@Lee_Wright could we get an update on the flipsky welder? I want to get one for the pen, is the pen holding up ok?

I’ve bought one of the pens like above and it’s a bit shonky. Not unusable. The probes are pretty much worn out now after a few batteries though.
I think the flipsky might be a little better.

I also got one of these for a nice discount from flipsky. I have a kweld but this is signifigantly better. After making a 12S3P for my scooter, it didn’t even get close to hot. The wires on my graphene lipo got warm but not too hot to hold. welded really nicely on .2 pure nickle.

We’ll see how reliable it is in future, but I wouldn’t be complaining at all. Its a step up from kweld and justifies its price tag so far.

Wow ok that’s awesome

I got 2 graphenes to put in parallel 6ah and 75c
Should that be fine?
