Good all round soldier – 40W Rubber Handle Electronics DIY Welding Soldering Iron (220~240V AC) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Good quality and all round soldering iron. Userfull for a variety of metals,suits perfectly small board work (thanks to its thin tip). After a three month use there's no sign of malfunction. Better than more expensive one i have bought at my local store.
Cons:
Fixed temperature. It became hot really quick, so use it in safe condition and on an appropriate holder. The handle can get quite warm after a long use (but it's not melting).
Other:
At the beginning you could have a small grey smoke produced during the heating and a strong hodour. I suggest to use it outside the first couple of time.
Bottomline:
Really worth the price. I'm really satisfied and the tip si lasting long than expected. Another Deal Extreme!
