    The link I previously posted was for mobile phones/devices. The link below is for regular computers:

    The link above is Dr Zarloff's review on the product. I wanted to please ask your opinion.

    R-E-A-L-L-Y?

    watch the video and start the clock at 2:12, it took OVER two minutes to heat and solder a ⅜ copper swage.

    I wonder how long it would take to heat a ¾" pipe.

    can you imagine how much heat would be needed near a service valve? Kiss that valve good-by

    I think I would take the time to go get my Oxy-Acetylene tanks filled

    (Not for nothing, but if I were a marketing person for DiversaTech, I would ask that guy to NOT wear my hat while making "educational video's")

    Is the MAPP Gas torch similar to this product (in a can, same gas, etc)?

    MAPP would be hotter that that example he showed.
    I don't even think he finished the single swage and the tape was stopped a few times.
    How could it possibly work on 3/4" and why would you ever light a torch in the cab of your truck

    That torch and gas looks like a fail to me

    ya, complete and total FAIL

    It might be good for lighting the BBQ though

    If MAPP is hotter, it sounds like a good back up for the regular Aceyletan & Oxygen tank torches. I agree Dr. Z should not have tested the "can torch" in his car

    now, now. I use my Butane mini-torch to light my cigars in the truck

    come to think of it, Mr Z's torch may make a good lighter

    Bet that torch could light the Wacky Tobacky too

    I might use that thing to light a real torch
