Can superglue be used instead of soldering, and would it be safe?

Is superglue a good conductor or is there any alternitive to soldering that can be used to fix a usb charger port connecter thats snapped off the board. would it be safe!

As others have said super glue is not conductive. You can buy conductive adhesive which is used when normal soldering is not practical. It can come in numerous styles (in a syringe, tube, or other type container). It is an option when a normal solder job can't be done. It is not as good as solder for many reasons but it can be very useful if soldering can not be done normally.

Hilanderbob, it really is not. There are no substitutes to soldering. There is no tensile strength with superglue and any time you will use the port it will crack etc. the port will most certainly fail within a couple of days, but that time you will lose the traces and solder pads for sure.

NO...it is not a conductor (it doesn't transfer electric current)> 2nd solder has a much better bond for these applications then superglue.

no it's definitely not as because it will damage the solder points

IDK but it worked for me! I used it to solder a broken wire on my headphone and it worked!

Might work if you mix in a little graphite with the glue to provide conductivity.

Hail no. Now go give yourself a smack in the face for even considering it.

Where does the face smacking come from? I believe that the OP asked a valid and common question. I do not see any reason to ridicule anybody on here

Because to clear the superglue out of solder connections during repair it not only complicates the repair, but it creates harmful toxic fumes that I have to breathe: From Wikipedia: "The fumes from CA are a vaporized form of the cyanoacrylate monomer that irritate sensitive membranes in the eyes, nose, and throat." Superglue in electronics has become a personal bane because of this.

Superglue, duct tape, and other temporary fix style solutions generally end up doing more harm than good, when quality lasting solutions are almost always available with a little research---but yes, I recognize that is just a matter of opinion.

For a charge port--grab a RadioShack soldering iron and some flux. Heat it up and get that port soldered back on. This one is definitely DIYable and easy to get a robust lasting solution.

"quality lasting solutions are almost always available with a little research" that what the OP did by coming here. He/she did not come here for a "smack in the face"

My dad used to use superglue to fix everything. Even his teeth.

Before he had dentures.

This is the same answer that I have given him. You can't use superglue to fix teeth, and you can't use superglue to make electrical connections. I think the OP knows this, and I don't see this as a serious question, but I am often wrong!

Are the super glue fumes really anymore toxic than the lead in the solder that you would be heating up? There's a polite way to tell someone no when they ask.
