ESP01 - Dead on arrival

ESP01 - an ESP8266 with bad soldering

Well, something from my old blog site. When I ordered my first ESP8266 it was the ESP01 model. Unfortunately this thing arrived dead. A massive soldering problem on the printed circuit board (pcb) caused it - therefore it’s my small board for demonstrative purposes only.

However, one day I will take out the soldering iron and fix it - but does it really make sense? At least the try should be done - that’s all part of the ESP8266 experience, isn’t it?

What do you think?
