James managed to catch a screenshot of the Flash Destroyer as it hit 6,000,000, thanks James!

The EEPROM is specified for 1 million writes at the voltage and temperature extremes listed in the datasheet. Running at room temperature, this chip might surpass 10 million write cycles. Or not. Stay tuned and find out. Submit your final count guess to win free PCBs.

You can preorder the Flash Destroyer ‘I like to solder’ kit for $30, including worldwide shipping.
