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

- Don't need an electricity, only a fuel
- Plain construction
- Very fast heating
- Staffed with 2 tips
- Easy to use
- Small size, so you can put anywhere
- You can use it far from electricity
- No lock for the gas controller
- Comes without self igniting device, so you need lighter to turn it on
- Only one tip for soldering
- Comes without tip "for hot air gun"
It would be better to have caps of different sizes, I think you can find it somewhere...
I tried ro use it for soldering with hot air, IT WORKS! But not for the motherboard... :(
Use only qualitative gas, or you could damage the catalyst.
If you need to solder away from the electricity, then this is what you need!!!
Buy it, it has good price and overall quality, I think carrying with your iron additional lighter or matches is not a problem.
