This thing gets hot quick. Don't wait too long or it heats up the handle. Needs an off switch. But other than that five outta five stars!
This soldering iron is not a toy nor is it a good iron to learn how to solder with. It is a tool and great for so many applications. I used it to melt a hole in the plastic so I could rewire my blaster properly. It went through the plastic like butter after being plugged in for two minutes tops. It requires you to "tin you tip" as it can easily get corroded with junk at the point of contact with the tinning wire. Other than that it heats up in mere seconds... Which is great for inpatient modders. It is portable too! Making adjustments on the fly while out in the field is a great asset to any foam flinging friend. It is also quite easily handled as it is not plugged into the wall, I made mine up like a tattoo rig with the battery off to the side. But isn't that just what a modder would do?
Heats up faster than a one you have to plug in the wall! Did a full mod on a rapidstrike witth one battery! Performed better than anything else I have used. I am impressed with this tool! I will be getting one for to use at work. The only thing that I can say bad about it is the heat shrink at the connector slides when you disconnect it, but we are modders aren't we? 😉
