Product details

Pro-Iroda Solderpro 50W Gas Soldering Iron Kit

• 50W portable gas soldering iron so you can work almost anywhere
• Heats up in as little as 20 seconds allowing you to get on with the job in hand
• Temperature ranges from 210°C to 400°C allowing you to store heat in the tip to aid the melting process
• Runs for up to 30 minutes when fully refilled with butane

What is included in this kit?
This soldering kit comes with almost everything you need to get started. The kit includes an assortment of heads so you can switch from one to another to suit the job you are working on. It also comes with some solder and a tip cleaning sponge to keep your tips nice and clean. All of this is contained in a heavy duty box to keep everything protected while you store it.

What are the other tips used for?
The tips included with this kit are suitable for a range of jobs. The standard 1mm tip is what you would use for normal, component or wire soldering based jobs. The torch head attachment gives you a pinpoint precision flame for the more accurate jobs, while the hot knife attachment gives you a tool for accurate cuts through plastic, Styrofoam and candles. Lastly, it comes with a hot air blower that is perfect for use with heat shrinkable sleeving, so you can cover your soldered connections for an extra bit of protection.

What difference does the wattage make?
The wattage of a soldering iron is one of the most important factors when deciding which one to buy. Higher wattage will deliver more power to the iron’s tip, allowing it to heat up quicker. As this is a 50W soldering iron, it heats up the tip in as little as 20 seconds, allowing you to start soldering without having to wait.

Do I need anything else for this soldering iron?
This soldering iron is supplied with a preinstalled tip but with no other accessories. You will require butane gas so you can use the soldering iron. Lead-free or silver solder is another item that you will require to begin soldering. If you require additional tips, or different tips, take a look at the following Order Codes: N86FA and N87FA

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for low use Found that heavy use makes the plastic that surrounds the metal tip part to soften resulting in a wobbly tip section. Given up using it for all but blowtorch on heat shrink after that. So great for occasional use, but if you want a gas iron for regular use do yourself a favour and stump up the extra for a weller pyropen. They last years of heavy daily use. I, and others I work with, have had this same issue with at least 5 of the Iroda irons, so it's not an isolated quality control issue sadly. Other than that great little iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got this and was not sure if it would be as good as my electric one but it heats up quicker and works better all round. I use it for working on a radio controlled car and it is perfect as it is so portable. This kit is also a great deal for a well known quality product. Well impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from melted plastic i Bought this to carry about about 20 small wire joins. The plastic melted before the tip was getting hot enough. Returned and got a cheap electric one with lower wattage but works instantly once heated

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for A while This is the second one of this model that I've owned. the first one I dropped and that was the end of that. Snapped, very easily I must say, where the the fixing ring meets the metal burner assembly parts. The second one failed earlier this week, (after about 30 uses in over about 18 months of use). It seems that the heat from the bit transferred back down the shaft and melted where the tip mount connects to the plastic parts, the same place where it snapped when i dropped one previously. It could have been some failure in the tip, or the plastic changed its form and melted at a lower temperature. but within a minute of being fired up it had melted and become wobbly. Too wobbly to solder with. I cooled it down and fiddled about with it and found that the plastic had gone brittle at the heat stress point and just crumbled. Up to that point i was very happy with it. I need a new one now. What to get. another of these?
