To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
Tinning and soldering the external/barrel connection is easy, but the pin connection is impossible. The little piece inside the housing is short, untinned/uncoated and therefore will not allow solder to stick, flow, and provide a reliable connection. Overheating occurs and the dielectric plastic melts and deforms. Also, the inside of the connector has a metal fragment, perhaps left over from the cutting of the threads. It almost appears to be a retaining ring/clip of some sort but not necessary. Leaving the ring/clip/fragment inside the barrel may cause a short-circuit. Overall, these are bad parts and should not be sold.
