Cheap soldering iron – 60W Rubber Handle Electronics DIY Welding Soldering Iron (220~240V AC) Reviews

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

Pros:
The soldering iron i very cheap. The rubber handle does not heat up, even after heating for half an hour, furthermore the handle has a great grip. The soldering point is interchangeable which makes it versatile. Heats up and cools down very quickly.
Cons:
You have to position the soldering iron very carefully because there is very little weight in the handle, or else the point will touch the work space table.
Other:
The screw holding the handle together were loose upon arrival - this is not a problem as they can be thightend with a Philips head screwdriver.
Bottomline:
Buy it because you need a cheap soldering iron for the small jobs around the house - not for professional use.
