Very basic – 30W Electronics DIY Soldering Iron (110V AC) Reviews

posted by strawberrykun on 03/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Great for working with consoles, such as upgrading your 360's stock fan to 12v, soldering wire, or any basic need on small electronics.
Cons:
Cord is a bit short, easily pulled and knocked over. Tip was loose and flew out of it one day, luckily it only hit the tile floor.
Other:
May want to get some extra tips too, and a desoldering pump or copper braid. It will help with your mistakes. Practice on something first, don't screw up your systems.
Bottomline:
Beginner in soldering like me? Get this, IMO, it's a great tool to start with, for $5, just buy it.
