  • Good Soldering Iron.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Great cheap soldering iron, and it has a very fine tip that's incredibly helpful which makes the iron easier to use. Nice build quality, and quite compact as well. It's smaller than it looks.
    The chord is think and flexible which makes soldering a breeze

    Cons:

    The grip is a bit too thin for my liking. Most likely not 40W, as it takes quite a while to get up to a usable temperature.
    Temperature could be a bit higher.

    Bottomline:

    A very nice soldering iron for casual, hobby soldering, but not use this to do any heavy duty soldering.
