Default Wire Glue. Anybody tried it?

Anybody ever tried Wire Glue? If you have, is it any good and how long does it last. It seems like a clever idea but it seems a bit too good to be true.

Default Wire glue

It sounded awesome and I received 4 of them today. 3 will be stocking stuffers. The one I am going use to try to fix a ipod with a pulled off ribbon cable and maybe a cellphone with a loose micro usb port. They got me on the titanium spork as well.

When I have used it I will report back

Cool in concept and yet it would seem poor in execution sadly. I tend to like Amazons reviews and one guy mentioned the instructions say use SuperGlue over top the Wire Glue, guess it does better for some and not as well for others.

Interesting that what you are going to use it for is exactly what I am tempted to use it for. I too am going to give it a go on the ipod so let's compare notes.
The reviews on Amazon that Tweak has provided the link for are mixed to say the least; but there again some people expect a magic wand. Lets see how it goes.

Bugger! Why did I have to look. More expense. Nah, I do a lot of hiking and camping so I'm sure it's going to come in handy. If not it will have to join all those other things that I couldn't live without at the time.

Default IT works

Wire glue does work. Past 1/4" it does have significant resistance. But it does conduct electricty. The part about adding glue over the top is to make it tougher. So tacking down something on a circuit board should work. It seems strong to me.
