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

    Pros:

    Lightweight piece of tool, the point looks good and covered with tin, nice pointy. the handle gives some possibilities to clamp it or just lay it on the table

    Cons:

    Cords of soldering irons can never be too long or too flexible.... this one is rather short and rigid even though it is not thick.

    then for soldering electronics it may be a little too warm. I have not measured the temperature, but that is my gut feeling it will burn sensitive components.

    OtherThoughts:

    At first use there was quite some smoke! oops!

    but later that seemed to vanisch, but it scared me!

    Bottomline:

    certainly for this price it's a good tool!
