What Is Micro Soldering and Why Should You Care?

When your phone breaks, it’s perfectly understandable if you don’t care exactly how it’s fixed, as long as the end result has it working with as little time and money lost as possible. In fact, that’s how most people feel. So, when we take a moment to talk to you about micro soldering, it isn’t to try to bore you with technical language. It’s because this important service is what creates separating distinctions between repair companies. More importantly, it’s because micro soldering is the rarely available technique that can save you more time and money than anything else in the world of tech repair.

What Is It?

You’re probably at least familiar with the idea of soldering, but just in case, here’s a quick explanation. Soldering is when you literally melt a soft metal to hold something in place. It’s extremely useful in repairing anything from musical instruments to car parts, but it’s especially common in technology. Almost any time a circuit needs repair, soldering comes into play. Micro soldering takes this to a new level. Like the name suggests, this is soldering done under a microscope, literally. Computer circuits, whether in a phone or an actual computer, are extremely small. Fixing them directly requires replacing or rerouting components on a microscopic level. You can probably imagine why most repair places don’t offer it. It’s a higher-level skill.

Why Does it Matter?

We just got a little technical, so it’s fair if you’re wondering why you should care. It all comes down to cost and time. If you drop your phone, spill something on your laptop or it just randomly stops turning on, you're likely facing a damaged circuit board. Since you just learned how complicated these circuits are, it makes sense why they are one of the most expensive parts in an electronic device.

Here's where we come in. We are able to perform micro soldering repairs in-house. Think of all the time and money that can be saved seeing us instead of shipping your phone half way across the country.

There are plenty of repairs that will never require micro soldering, but when it does, bring it into Mobile Revive. We'll take care of it from there.
