Adjustable Display Soldering Iron

As a DIY type you can never have too many soldering irons and this latest one has some virtues, it is CHEAP at under £18 and it has a nice display and simple temperature controls. It also uses pretty widely available bits.

Not excited about the stand but it works – and I have others. The iron however seems ok up to now and has temperature control from 180c to 480c. The cable seems substantial but of course only time will tell. Mine came with an EU plug which works well for me as I tend to lug stuff back and forth to Spain in the summer.

Despite the pretty but Chinese box, the instructions came in English – not that I needed them. The 3-sided info claims a temperature accuracy of 5c and 2mV tip to ground voltage.

  1. Tips? It really should say on the box. Looks like 900M?
    What do the buttons do?
    How quickly does it get up to temp?
    Does it sleep automatically?

    1. The buttons are on/off, up and down (temperature). It takes only a minute to get up to temperature depending on what you set. It possibly does say on the box but now I’ve thrown the box out. No automatic sleep (I would not want that).
