Very powerful (it gets hot very fast)
It's a good point to have these both points, one for soldering and another for burning or heating things.
The big con is that if I charge it with gas I only can use it for 1 or 2 days, if I try to use it after that it's empty of gas, so I need to go with the filler always I go with the solder.
Another (and no less important con) is that the "foot" of the solder is not high enough for the temperature that it rise (so, you can't put it over a material like plastic, or wood because it will be damaged).
Another con, is that after some use (20-30 times) it don't regulate so well the power.
I don't use this solder normally, I usually use the electric one, this is only for in field working.
