Careful on this. I bought a similar cheap soldering iron from Aldi a while ago and it did a few jobs. But when the chips were down and I had to replace the power port on my laptop I had to run down to maplins and pick up a 50w iron to melt the solder adequately - up to that point I thought that solder was solder and any old iron would do (pardon the pun). That said I love the design of the iron holder with the clips.

good point raised by redjay there, however on the plus side if you use this on thin wires it won't melt the sleeving back, i have a 60w iron but i think i'm going to join redjay and get this it's worth the cash and i too like the dinky holders! (boys and gadgets). on a serious note it's always good to tin the end of wires going to mains plugs much better grip

I think you had to deal with lead free solder there. Leaded solder melts at 180 C, but while common in DIY, it is no longer allowed in consumer products. Lead free solder has different compositions, but the melting point is usually around 220 C - so you will need more heat to unsolder it.
