  • It does what it is supposed to do

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

    Pros:

    This soldering iron heats up fairly quickly and works just as well as any other plug in iron style I've used aside from the fancy ones with temperature controls and bases (that also cost 20 / 30x as much).
    Didn't electrocute me like some others have mentioned. That's always a pro.

    Cons:

    he build quality is no that good
    when I first received this tems the screws were loose so I had to tighten 'em up but after that it was just fine, I still have to tight them up from time to time though
    when you first plug it in, i smokes for quite a white, a good 45 minutes in my case

    OtherThoughts:

    The smoking is concerning, but after reading the reviews it was surprising and you just have to let it smoke a bit the first time around. - No stand and doesn't lie down totally safely - Plug looks a bit different, and maybe doesn't hold in your socket perfectly

    Bottomline:

    Good product and works as it should. Heats up quickly and tip is nice and sharp. Good cheap soldering iron.
