It's a Survival Bracelet... for geeks. All-wire is the most compact.


Description [Hide]

Everyone is familiar with paracord bracelets - the cleverly woven wearable survival device that instantly unravels into many meters of useful and super strong nylon cord in case of necessity. These are useful for outdoorsy types, but what if you are an indoorsy type with a lot of electronic emergencies? Or a geek in need of a bright wrist decoration that shows off your geekness?

The Solarbotics Repairacord™ Electronics Survival Bracelet is what you need (complimentary pun included). Woven using traditional quick-release paracord weaves, it unravels in seconds, but instead of a regular electronically-inept nylon cord,  it packs about 1.2m (4') of a high-quality 24-gauge 40-strand silicon wire. It can easily carry up to 2Amps, is wonderfully flexible and surprisingly wearable against the skin.

But should we say (infommercial style) wait - there's more! What good is wire if you can't utilize it properly? For ultimate electronics confidence, you'll find inside of each bracelet's core a payload sleeve containing a 15cm (6") length each of 3mm heat shrink and solder.

Now the only thing that you need is something to solder with. Out in the urban (or not so urban) jungle it could be a coin or a bare nail, which we have successfully tried. There's other hacks showing how to solder with a regular butane lighter.

So with Repairacord you are ready to repair the world - if you need to.

Features:

  • Choice of 17.8, 20.3 and 22.9cm lengths (7", 8" and 9" respectively)
  • Many color combinations!

 Each bracelet features:

  • 1.2M (~4’) of 24AWG, 40-strand tinned wire  in a superflexible silicone insulator
  • 16cm (~6”) of 1/8" heat shrink and lead-free solder in hollow paracord payload sheathe.

Wearability:

The "All-wire" version is the most compact, but the silicone is susceptable to abrasion. And there's only the 16cm paracord payload core to use for rope-work.

  • Advantages: Lots of wire in tidy package
  • Disadvantages: Only a minimum of paracord for rope-work. Takes most effort to disassemble due to silicone's friction. Exposed wire shows signs of wear sooner than other models.

Color/Weave Selection:

We have a limited number in our first production run, where we've experimented with color combinations. Unfortunately, we're unable to list every type, but if you care to leave a comment with your order what color theme/weave you'd like, we'll select one that will most closely match your request.

We have two types of weave available: sinnet (first photo left bracelet) and snake (first photo right bracelet).

Also check out the other 2 variations:

  • Hybrid (combination wire/paracord weave)
  • Armoured (wire is safely protected within the woven paracord sleeve)
