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.
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?
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.
