Recently, some customers gave feedback that PCMTuner Smart Dongle had quality problems, such as the boots on the Dongle not being fully welded to the PCB and the Dongle become hot during use. In fact, that’s normal for Smart Dongle, not a quality problem. Check how obdexpress.co.uk technician explains.
Q: Why the dongle chip has some boots don’t weld to the PCB, is that the factory makes mistakes or has quality pro?
A: It’s not a quality problem. It’s specially designed by PCMTuner team for safety factor. They don’t let the chip be fully welded to the PCB. Because if you weld the chip or anyone tries to touch it, the dongle will damage soon and lock.
Q: Why will Dongle feel hot when it’s working?
A: It’s really normal. Any PCB work will expand heat, so it can be protected from damage due to the high temperature.
