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

posted by Gaspumpmec on 07/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Gets hot very quick
Small pointed tip
Handle does not get hot
Cons:
Iron smokes when first plugged in, best to plug it in outside first and let the smoke burn off.
You can see the iron gets red hot just behind the tip, I hope it doesnt burn out from getting too hot.
Other:
Gets nice and hot quickly and realy cheap price, could use a dimmer switch inline if the iron is too hot for the job.
Bottomline:
I think this is one of the only 110 volt soldering irons on the site and it does what it is supposed to, get hot quickly. For under 5 bucks you can start modding.
Would be nice if it came with a stand for a couple bucks more.
