Quick heating soldering iron is ideal for general purpose applications requiring temperatures up to and over 750°F. Ideal tool for any tool box or bench.
On sale at under $3, it's not a bad arts&crafts product or audio/video cable maintenance tool.
Lightrweight, compact, and and probably handy (I've no use for the 2 I bought, so haven't powered them up), I'll give them away to someone who can use them.
For electronics soldering, they're a no-go. The box indicates 3-wire (grounded) power cord, but the picture now in the online catalogue shows 2 prong non polarized..
For electronics soldering, ungrounded tip irons/pencils are unacceptable except for cable & connector work, as the ungrounded tip is an ESD management issue. I'd not want to modify it to ground the tip, as proper grounded tip irons are available, and modification voids the electrical/fire safety assurances.
Thanks for the feedback! We are working with our supplier to fix the box labeling issue. For a 3-prong (grounded) iron, we have many options available on our website or catalog. We also have some exciting new electronics soldering iron options coming by the end of the year!
Worth getting for a toolcase! Not bulky.
