About this product


Product overview

• Heats up in 5 minutes to give you a stable and constant temperature so you can complete all your soldering tasks
• Temperature ranges from 150°C to 450°C, depend on wattage, allowing you to store heat in the tip to aid the melting process
• No restrictions on how long you can use this soldering iron as it is mains powered

Special Features

What is this solder station used for?
This soldering iron is part of an LCD solder station. The iron is temperature controlled and can be set through the station which shows the set temperature and actual temperature. The station includes an iron stand and sponge

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 48W mains soldering iron, it heats up the tip within five minutes to a selected temperature, allowing you to start soldering without having to refill butane tanks or replace batteries.

Do I need anything else for this soldering iron?
This soldering iron is fully assembled. To get started, all you need to do is get some solder. Simply unpack this soldering iron and connect it to a mains socket. After five minutes, it should have warmed up to temperature and be ready for use.

For a replacement element and tips take a look at the following Order Codes: N72CW and N78GZ

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a good soldering iron, but it is badly let down by the lack of replacement tips. There is only the 3-pack with just two different sized tips in the pack. For normal through-hole PCB work I found the small tip too small and the big tip too big. I haven't been able to source any elsewhere, so make sure the tips suit you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a decent iron and heats up quickly. It feels good and solid which is more than can be said for many modern electronic devices which rarely stand up with their own weight. The additional bits are reasonable value. All in all recommended and Good Value For Money
