FULL HOW-TO GUIDE on the ADAFRUIT LEARNING SYSTEM:
A portable solder fume extractor is a popular “maker” project…there are countless guides from Instructables, Make: and elsewhere. Most use two 9 Volt batteries and a voltage regulator inside an Altoids tin.
Here we’ll update this classic project with current materials and processes: a lithium-polymer battery, USB charging and a perfectly-fit 3D-printed case.
This makes a great companion to the Hakko+Adafruit USB Rechargeable Cordless Soldering Iron project. A single microUSB charging cable keeps all your portable electronics tools topped off!
