  • Just doesn't get hot enough to do any useful work.

    Was this review useful?  Yes No  7 4

  • I've bought 2 of these soldering irons now and both of them died after less than 5 uses each. Would advise others to buy something better...

  • Very good, worked better than expected. after 13 uses I had to replace the nib, the nibs cost near to nothing, but it was replaced and ready to use in 5 mins. I recommend it to anyone who wants a quick soldering job or want to create an electrical circuit.

  • Had this unit for about 2 years now and have used it 20+ times. It needs a new nib but other than that has been perfect when used. One downside is that I think the cable is fairly short. If I work at table height and its plugged in at skirting height then the cable strain interferes with precise positioning.

  • Did what it had to, bought as a replacement for my old one, which randomly fizzled out on me. Tip lasts for a fairly long time before it needs replacing, cable is fairly long too.

  • Fantastic soldering iron great quality and the tip lasted me for 7 years. It's not a professional soldering iron but I does the job very well
