About this product

What is included in this kit?
This mains powered soldering iron has a 40W output and is supplied in a kit. The kit includes a de-soldering pump to help you remove old components from a board, a soldering stand to safely store 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 40W mains soldering iron, it heats up the tip within ten 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 soldering iron kit has everything you need. Simply unpack the kit out of the blister pack, assemble the stand and plug in the soldering iron. Replacement solder is available to purchase when the supplied solder runs low. If you need replacement tips for this soldering iron, take a look at Order Code N29KT.

Please tell me the differences between this 40W soldering kit and soldering kit Code: N72HY. Why is it not available in any of your London stores, it shows out of stock on a NEW item. I asked for this item and had to buy a more expensive one instead.
