Good cheap Soldering iron – 40W Rubber Handle Electronics DIY Welding Soldering Iron (220~240V AC) Reviews

posted by ZippeDude on 12/18/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
I used the soldering iron to change LED's for my XBOX controller and it worked just fine! So even for detailed work it's a handy device!
Cons:
The handel gets a little hot after long use (30 to 45 minutes), but that's it. If you switch it of for a few minutes it good to go again. To bad you don't have an indicator telling you when the solder is hot enough... you just have to try it out and see.
Other:
Very cheap for a soldering iron. I'm from Belgium and these things go for tripple the price or more. The shipping took only about 2 weeks.
Bottomline:
A very good deal if you ask me. Very cheap and it gets the job done, even changing small LED's is no problem.
