Do you still have another one of these units for sale? I'd like to purchase one, let me know. Thanks!

Yes. I still have them.
Let me know if you have any other questions!


You said you can solder this by hand? What wattage of soldering gun and how small of a tip do you need?

I am interested in purchasing one though, what is the total cost? And should I send the funds to aki@theledart.com as you stated below?

I recommend a temperature controlled soldering station, like this one. The tip should be fine on that one, although you can get a thinner one as an option.

Thin solder wire is very helpful, and don't forget the solder wick. Also flux is very important. Oh, and a pair of tweezers of course.

With those tools and a bit of practice, you should be able to hand solder Aurora 9 bar. IMHO soldering the LEDs is actually more tricky than SMDs! Again don't forget flux.

Go to YouTube and search "SMD soldering" and watch a few videos. There are some great ones to show the technique. (This is how I learn to solder SMD.)

Pricing is what's written above. Just go to PayPal.com and send the payment to aki@theledart.com.


Do I just go to paypal and send you a payment to order this, then? As soon as you answer I will order the aurora bar, thanks.

Yes. Please send the payment to aki@theledart.com, and I will ship the kit.


I would like to order one of these as well to practice my SMT skills. Is one still available?

Thank you,

How much would the kit be including shipping to the uk?

I am interestedto buy one of these PCB's. I am also interested on Aurora9x18 PCB. I am from Romania so please let me know the price for international shiping.
Thank you.

Actually, the shipping to Romania would be $13.50, so the total is $23.
Sorry, Aurora 9x18 PCB is not available.
