Mobile Phone Repairing Tools & Equipment | Tools to Repair Mobile Cell Phone

When selecting tools and equipment for repairing mobile cell phones, it is important to select the best tools. Cheap or inexpensive tools and equipment may not be handy when repairing a mobile phone. On the other hand, best quality little expensive tools and equipment will help you to repair a mobile phone easily and comfortable. I am personally trained in mobile cell phone repairing and my personal experience says that we must always select and buy the best tools available in the market or online. These good quality tools may cost a little more but in the long term you will be happy that you bought the best tools.

There are hundreds of tools for mobile phone repairing available in the market. It is important to select the best brand. Below all the tools and equipment needed for mobile cell phone repairing:

  1. Soldering Iron: Used to solder small components like capacitor,
    Soldering Iron

    resistor, diode, transistor, regulator, speaker, microphone, display etc. A 50 watt soldering iron is good enough for most mobile phone repairing job. When buying a soldering iron, select the one that is easy to hold and does not burn you hand. The soldering iron must have option to choose and select different types and shapes of soldering tips or bits. These tips or bits must be replaceable. It must also be ESD-Safe (Antistatic) because most electronic components in a mobile phone are very sensitive and can get damaged due to static charge or static electricity. Hakko and Weller are two world renowned brands who manufacture, sell and export world class soldering irons and other soldering tools and equipments.

  2. Soldering Station: A soldering station has 2 units – a station and an

    iron. It has option to control temperature depending on the heat requirement of the soldering job being done. The soldering iron is attached with the soldering station. It is better and more convenient than traditional soldering iron. It makes soldering work much easier and faster. When buying a soldering station for mobile phone repairing one must always select an ESD-Safe (Antistatic) model. Hakko and Weller are two world renowned brands who manufacture, sell and export world class soldering irons and other soldering tools and equipments.

  3. PCB Holder / PCB Stand: A PCB (Printed Circuit Board) holder or PCB

    PCB Holder

    stand is used to old the PCB of a mobile phone while soldering or repairing. It holds the PCB very strongly and doesn’t allows it to move thus helping in repairing. Again, it is important and wise to select a good quality PCB holder rather than a cheaper and inexpensive one.

  4. Solder Wire: Solder wire is used to solder electronic components, ICs

    or jumper. Composition of most solder wire is Tin / Lead in the ratio 60:40 or 63:37. Since the introduction of RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) from electronics, more and more companies are using lead-free solder. Lead-free solder wire is available in many compositions but the most common composition is Tin / Silver / Copper in the Ratio 96.5:3.0:0.5. Solder wire is available in different diameters such 2.0mm, 1.5mm, 1.0mm, 0.5mm, 0.2mm etc. For mobile phone repairing 0.5mm solder wire is best suitable. Kester is a world renowned manufacturer and supplier of solder wire and other soldering material.

  5. Thinner or PCB Cleaner: Thinner or PCB cleaner is used to clean the PCB of a mobile phone. The most common PCB cleaner used in mobile phone repairing is IPA or Isopropyl Alcohol. It is important to buy only good quality PCB cleaner as poor quality PCB cleaners can damage the board.

    Would you be able to better inform me on which type of heat gun would be best to open waterproof electrical devices? Or to just break a glue seal safely.

    • says:

      Heat gun or hot air rework system are meant to melt solder. They are not used to melt glue. But it can be used to melt glue if the melting point of the glue is less that about 600 degree Celsius.
