  • good for hobby use

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    does its job. Decent build quality and a spare burner tip is included.

    Cons:

    Gas stream is not very constant. It seems to fluctuate when using the iron for a longer time. Also the only soldering tip included is rather large, so it's not a very good soldering iron for small electric components.

    OtherThoughts:

    This needs more spare soldering tips to make it more useful. The gas stream could be a bit more constant.

    Bottomline:

    A good soldering iron if you have to do some soldering where there is no electricity, but I wouldn't recommend it for daily use.
