I'm not sure what type of solder it was but it was no good at all. Very concerning that the wires attached to the regulator are not strain relieved in any way except the rubber boot.
Most likely RoHS lead free solder. It is a requirement in order to sell your product in North America, Europe, as well as other countries. Has been for a few years now.

Lead free solder will require a hotter iron to melt. Use a solder wick or braid that contains flux, or add a drop of liquid flux to aid in removal.

There is definately a good business opportunity for someone to manufacture a similar unit to the Align 2 in 1 using higher quality components. A lot of guys would buy it if the price increase was reasonable.

Still the same problems? Switch seems different.

Thanks for the info. Was about to order one off the Heliproz website... wonder how many they sold like that? They need to update that and stop the false advertising.

OLD, WRONG picture. Go to the Align website for a correct picture of the current version.

Really? Not false advertising? Let me go in the Classifieds and post "**new**" and a pic of an item not as it actually is and see if that isn't called false advertising. Heliproz has a good rep & good online store... suprised no one caught that as other sites advertise the correct one. From the add, I gathered "**new**" and a wrong pic that lead me to think that. Thanks again for straightening it out.

The picture I seen on the Align site looks like the one I bought a couple of years ago. So the one on the Heliproz site looks different than mine,heliproz looks like the new one??
Just a guess on my part.
