a must have tool – Electronics DIY Gas Soldering Iron Reviews

posted by GiorgF on 03/22/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The overall quality is good and it feels solid. the two tips are also well made. Main switch is sturdy and also the "power" regulator works fine but you will have some unpredictable fluctuation in the gas flow. Makes soldering very easy and fast.
Cons:
Refill port seems non standard, you will need to adapt some other recharging tip.
Other:
An integrated lighter will be superb! it's a pity that you have to carry around a separate lighter.
Bottomline:
no protectve cap. No clear window to see gas level inside the tank.
