Are aliexpress parts safe to use?
>Lead dust can form when some plastics are exposed to sunlight, air, and detergents that break down the chemical bond between the lead and plastics.

Have you ever browsed a rekt thread? Safety is China's #1 priority
>>
>>2442352
They are "safety numbaa 1" but accidents happen
>>
>>2442350
Would they use lead when there are much cheaper and easier chemicals now?
>>
>>2442350
>parts
What parts? They sell literal millions of products made all over China, coming from tens of thousands of sellers.
>>
>>2442363
Plastic holders, buttons, switches, and rpi/arduino boards

well just get a lead-detection test, turns pink if there's a lot of lead there

Or just lick it
>>
>>2442371
The electronics boards are the same you get anywhere else, the RPi even costs the same. Shouldn't be touching or licking electronics boards much with normal use.
You already have a lot of homogay in you if you're afraid of using a plastic switch because it came from Aliexpress, there's nothing left for the estrogens to do.

It's not the estrogen that scares me but all the carcinogens in their plastics/metals that might get in my lungs or mouth through fingers or air
>>
>>2442371
How many of these do you plan to stick in your mouth?

2 or 3, but it's more the possibility of something bad happening that scares me. If there's the same risk with "real" stuff then ok, but if these are inferior and toxic then fucking hell.

> buys cheapest shit he can get his hands on
> worries about carcinogens
> conveniently ignore the soup of car exhaust, faecal and skin dust and fuck knows what else in modern suburban air that you inhale daily.
Your cognitive dissonance is showing anon.
>>
>>2442413
Well I can't really avoid those things, and I'd buy more expensive stuff but what I need isn't available
>>
You shouldn't buy anything old tech either, they are ravaged by lead and other stuff back when it wasn't regulated.
>>
>>2442407
what was that?
>>
>>2442391
Xenoestrogens, among many other things are also carcinogenic. There is literally no escape.
>>
>>2442456
Looks like some kind of RC ESC.
>>
>>2442462
Oh that's nice, are these things in more legit products or are only the cheap plastics something to avoid.
>>
>>2442467
>Background: Chemicals having estrogenic activity (EA) reportedly cause many adverse health effects, especially at low (picomolar to nanomolar) doses in fetal and juvenile mammals.

>Results: Almost all commercially available plastic products we sampled—independent of the type of resin, product, or retail source—leached chemicals having reliably detectable EA, including those advertised as BPA free. In some cases, BPA-free products released chemicals having more EA than did BPA-containing products.

Google is hard, etc

I don't trust my abilities to search information on google, better to get someone smart and knowing to tell.

What other chemicals could plastic have now? If it's the cheapest fucking trash they just throw together in a vat to make your awesome overwatch mercy raspberry pi case for 2 bucks.

I can almost guarantee you that the rise in autism in the US is directly tied to the increase in unmonitored drop shipping from China via ebay and Amazon. Starting in the late 90s and rising steadily. Even if a particular item doesn’t contain toxic chemicals, the lack of regulation and safety means that all kinds of unsafe chemicals are used in the same factories that produce children’s toys, bottles and all the general shit tha5 shows up at your door. At one time Walmart or target was the middle man for all this crap. It allowed for some level of regulation and oversight. Now there is virtually none.
>>
>>2442584
So what does it mean? Everything is now toxic or just china stuff without a walmartesque big brother?
>>
>>2442388
Gook hands typed this

>>2442350
Fuck no
But do it anyway because that's where it all comes from anyway
