About this product


Product overview

• 25W mains powered soldering iron that allows you to start soldering by simply plugging in the iron
• Heats up in 2-3 minutes to give you a stable and consistent temperature to complete all your soldering tasks
• Maximum temperature of 390°C allowing you to store heat in the tip and aid the melting process
• No restrictions on how long you can use this soldering iron as it is mains powered

What is included in this kit?
This mains powered soldering iron has a 25W output and is supplied as a kit. The kit includes a stand to safely hold your soldering iron and a tube of lead-free solder to get you started.

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 25W mains soldering iron, it heats up the tip within three minutes, allowing you to start soldering without having to refill butane tanks or replace batteries.

Do I need anything else for this soldering iron?
To get started, this kit has everything you need. Simply unpack the kit, setup the stand and plug in the soldering iron. Replacement solder is available to purchase when the supplied solder runs low.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent iron, useless stand. Iron totally fine for my purposes. Replaces my old iron that lasted for over 30 years. Stand is useless though as it tips up when the iron is placed in it. Need to weight it down to avoid it tipping over.
