A quick writeup about the V2.1S T12 Digital Temperature Controller Soldering Station courtesy of Banggood – the unit comes minus mains power cable and with a single all-in-one tip – but looks very sturdy.
So above I’ve shown what you get with the package, below I’ll show the unit assembled (takes seconds) and running – I put a UK mains lead on it – all that is missing is a soldering iron holder but that’s fine. Operation should be obvious – a single button with push to set limits.
And finally – in operation at 300c with some paste I happened to have handy. This is not my first KSGER iron – I left the other one in the UK so I was particularly pleased to see this arrive in the post from China. I can use this tip for general electronics soldering, I will order something a little finer for surface mount work. Looking back at that link, Banggood do a base for the iron and spare tips not to mention sponges – which have JUST arrived. Here are the tips – they also do the sponges and all sorts of other extras.
When I realised I’d not ordered a stand or spare tips, Banggood were quick to help out — check out the KSGER soldering tips 5-pack – and the KSGER soldering iron station stand – they do sponges as well but I’m sure I have plenty of those in the kitchen. The stand is cheap and cheerful – but importortantly it does the job and now sits as a permanent addition to my worktop.
