ESD Safe
When choosing a solder station the HAKKO FX-880D ticks all the boxes. The soldering iron is ESD Safe (electro static discharge) which ensures that no matter how sensitive to static electricity the parts you are working with are, they won’t be at risk with this soldering iron. The adjustment and presentable modes ensure you can set the temperature to what you desire and then you can lock it with a password to protect your settings.

70W heating the tip within 20 seconds
The wattage of a soldering iron is one of the most important factors when deciding which one to buy. Higher wattage will deliver more heat to the iron’s tip, allowing it to heat up quicker. As this is a 70W mains solder station, it heats up the tip in under 20 seconds to a selected temperature, allowing you to start soldering without having to refill butane tanks or replace batteries.

Fully assembled, requires solder
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. In under a minute, it should have warmed up to temperature and be ready for use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Product Definitely worth looking at this soldering station - I brought this after purchasing a simple wand soldering iron and being very disappointed with the old irons performance, this hakko station on the other hand is perfect! Very quick to heat up to temperature with the display letting you know just when its ready, easy to adjust and the base had both a sponge and wire cleaning slot. Recommended to others as a good first soldering station with the potential to work well for a long time as it feels very well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, good price, Japanese design Nicely made budget soldering station. Easy to use and Japanese designed. Easy to set up, quick to warm up and comes with sponge / foil for tip cleaning. I'd also recommend getting a "tip tinner / cleaner" and some replacement tips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasure to use Good range of temperatures, heats up quickly. Great to have a clear display showing that the device is switched on, and the temperature. Sits nicely in the hand with a good, easy grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Iron I bought this iron to treat myself after years of building analogue modular synthesizer circuits with a basic Antex stick. It is a great iron and was a great price from Maplin at the time. Well made, sturdy, comfortable...does exactly what it says on the tin.

Which tip does this come with? There are 27 types. Hakko supplies with whichever you want. Which one is sold by Maplin with the station. It is a simple question to answer.

Asked by: Mike
This comes with what I would call the "standard" type, 2mm pointed type tip.
