  • Not bad at all

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Nice soldering iron for jobs where your low-power soldering station cannot deliver enough heat (power connectors, etc.).

    Temperature regulated (however it's hard to believe the scale values).

    Cons:

    Not a regular ground terminal - you have to connect the crocodile style terminal to the ground port. Why the manufacturer not using a standard 3-wire cable? Probably the price considerations...

    The tip is mounted using side screw - I would prefer the cup-nut type locking (this tip mount type on exactly the same soldering iron sold in some eBay shops)

    It can also be $2-$3 cheaper.

    OtherThoughts:

    Would be nice to have spare tips for sale on DX. I know where to buy them (another HK shop), but think DX has to take care of the spare parts as well.

    Bottomline:

    Not bad and probably the only 60W type sold by DX.
