Anyone who thinks a Soldering Iron is NOT HOT needs their head examining!

Bargain.Hunter - "Dont forget Quidco Or PaysYou cashback"

Picked one up today, and have to admit it seems a very good piece of kit. Especially when one considers the next one up @ £59.99 covers the same temperature range at 60W.

"WOULD YOU LIKE SOME SOLDER?" asked the Man from Maplin at the checkout. I said "no" and remembered I had already Searched a certain "trade Bay" for - 100g SOLDER FOR SOLDERING IRON 100G UK 31110 - and ordered some leaded 60/40 (industry standard) solder at a very good price.

Very good deal, I was lucky enough to pick one up when they were on offer for £9.99. The only downside is it isn't temperature regulated, no thermostat (like on higher prices irons), the adjustment just varies the power.

Considering most of us are not professionals, and the temp controlled ones start at around £50. I doubt many would go wrong with this.

Quite. Mine failed suddenly after a few months of use, so I took it apart. Inside it's a cheapo dimmer circuit, with lots of glue holding the components in place (classic low-end chinese assembly).
It's a shame the replacement bits are so expensive, though.

I bought one of these about a year ago at this price. Was a good buy. :thumbsup:

they were selling the normal 30w ones for 2.99 or 3.99. great for occassional use.

Recently bought one of these before seeing this HUKD post.
No complaints, seems to function OK. Yes, it does have a somewhat unsubstantial plastic appearance, but would suggest for the casual hobbiest this will be fine.
Probably worth the £15 I paid, but I wouldn't have been too keen at £20+ and almost definitely would not have given it a second glace at what Maplin claim to be their "usual" £30 price.
A warm vote form me, unlike the iron itself which can become exceptionally hot!
