Not satisfied with the product – Electronics DIY Gas Soldering Iron Reviews

posted by Alonex on 07/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It's very simple to use. It's light, the gas lasts long enough.
Cons:
The temperature is reaches isn't high enough to make quality soldering. The rosin core doesn't get hot enough. I think this is a serious design flaw as this should be a main feature in this product.
Other:
I was very satisfied with it at the beginning, but then I understood why my soldering suddenly seems to weak.
Bottomline:
This is definitely not a replacement for a regular electrical soldering iron, but it's handy when you have simple work to do and no electricity, but it is not for serious work.
