Good solder iron – 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:
This solder iron gets the job done. I don't need it really often so I decided to get a cheap one. I can solder with this pretty good, as long as you keep your tip clean and maintain it as you should. Small tip for soldering smaller areas.
Cons:
The handle is made of hard plastic, as almost all other solder irons. There is however a small gap between the two halfs, but it is so small you almost don't notice it. But hey, for $6, what did you expect?
Other:
Buy it if you tend to use it once in a while. If you have to solder a lot, buy a more professional one. Power cord is about 1.5m (5ft) I would say, which is long enough for me, you can always use an extension cable.
Bottomline:
For this price it is a steal!
