    I have a tube of rosin core tin/lead solder. is this ok to solder a modchip like the wiikey on my wii system. I am a soldering newbie and never soldered before. would appreciate some advice. I don't want to solder with this stuff and it doesn't work. I will by some other stuff if it will work better or best. Thanks Guys.

    I was actually wondering if any type of soldering wire would work and it is still kind of unanswered. I know what size wire to use now, though, if I decide not to use the quicksolder method. I hear the wired method is definitely the way to go, because you have a less chance of screwing up and I would imagine it is much easier to switch mod chips which I probably will want to do if they come out with a better one. So thanks for the help and the link. =)

    it really depends there are two types of solder

    1. is a thinner grade solder for electronics

    2. is a thicker grade used in cars and computer mods

    I got my solder at radio shack dunno what it was but i went for the better one where you get less for more money... I figure that im never gonna use 10 feet of it or whatever. Also if its your first time soldering make sure you get desolderer its a lifesaver ;)

    If you order from modchipstore.com you can buy a wire/solder kit for the wii for an additional 5 dollars ;)
