This soldering iron is part of a solder station which controls the temperature of the tip. It is controlled through a dial on the station which also acts as a soldering iron stand. The station is connected directly to the mains, which powers the soldering iron. This is an ideal iron to begin soldering with as it is rugged, inexpensive and can be used on a range of soldering projects such as repairing PCB's or joining cables together. The included sponge within the station will allow you to keep the iron clean and prevent a build-up of oxides which can affect the quality of soldering and the temperature of the iron itself.
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 mains soldering iron, it heats up the tip within ten 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 simple to assemble. After assembly, all you need is some solder and then you can get to work. Once plugged in, it takes only ten minutes to warm up to the selected temperature.
