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

    Pros:

    This soldering iront is cheap and yet its quality is good enough. It is light and quite easy to handle and the cord length is OK. Heats up quickly.

    Cons:

    I would not keep it switched ON for too long.
    The first time I used it the smoke was so smelly that I had to open the window to air the room (fortunately it did not last long). The handle tends to get a bit too warm after a while.
    Also the tip does not seem durable...

    OtherThoughts:

    It would be a good idea to sell it with a second flat tip.

    Bottomline:

    40 W is just fine and the thing does its job nicely.
