This soldering station set features 70 Watts of pure power. Despite it's 70W output, the LF-1660ESD is also suitable for delicate SMD soldering tasks and has a finely adjustable digital temperature control. Another great feature of this station is the auto-sleep function that automatically reduces the iron temperature after inactivity.

    XYtronic LF1660ESD

    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    I personally own a few XYtronic soldering and desoldering stations. I currently own the LF-3200 and LF-5200. Both are high power soldering stations, 120W. They are perfect for soldering terminals, battery, Drones, etc. They are also perfect for soldering SMC with the selected tips. This station is no exception. The tweezers is a lot better compared to the tweezers made by Aoyue. The soldering wand is high quality, its structure is similar to Hakko and Metca. Both the soldering wand and the tweezers use integrated heater/tips. They heat up fast and cool down fast, too. The price point is perfect for professional use and/or hobbyist.

    Here are some details about the product:

    Overall: 4 out of 5

    Quality:

    Control unit has its power switch on front panel, along with a slide switch which selects between the iron and the tweezers. Only one of them is powered at a time, however heat-up is really fast, about 7 seconds from room temp to 700'F. The temperature setting is the same for both iron and tweezers. So if you want your iron at 700'F and your tweezers at 750'F, you will have to change the setting each time you switch tools. However, there is a programmable temperature offset adjustment (+-178'F) for each tool, which may provide a way around this inconvenience.
    The LED display shows the set temperature while it is being set, and the actual temperature at all other times. Units are indicated by "'F" or "'C". The decimal point blinks to indicate on/off operation of the heating element.
    For some strange reason, the manual states that the tweezers' tips may be 54 to 90 'F colder than the iron tip, when set to the same temperature. Again, the programmable offset should be able to compensate for this.
    The iron and tweezers use the same type of tip - a 3.5 inch long thin rod with three electrical contacts at one end, which plugs in to the iron / tweezers. Each tip includes its own heater and temperature sensor.
    The control unit and stands are aluminum. The stands are too lightweight, and move around easily. (They do provide some space that could be filled with rocks or sand, to keep them from moving.)
    The tips are electrically isolated from ground. There is a banana jack on the back which is shorted to ground, for an optional wrist-strap.
    The owner's manual appears to have been written for an earlier version of the product which used bent-foil tweezer tips (page 6). It also mentions about cleaning debris buildup in the barrel assembly, which does not seem applicable to the newer type of tips. The drawings of tips on page 7 are highly pixelated and illegible.
