***DONT BUY IT***

The tips for these are terrible and there's no replacements!!

They are screw in ones - similar to Weller but not quite the same size.

Where do you get replacement tips from? 2 tips don't last that long.

Important to note the temperature is adjustable (more accurately, the power is adjustable), but they aren't temperature regulated.

It seems to be thermostatically controlled. I don't understand how 'power' could be 'adjustable' Usually there is a sensor near the heating element

Oh god, not these again, they're cheap for a reason haha! the handles too big, the tips aren't strong so they just 'explode' and the sponge is like a Jacobs cracker!, although the free reels of solder are tiny, they do the job :P

Awesome, time to find my nearest Lidl!! My existing iron is a bit brutal, works fine for big tasks but has a tendency to cook smaller components.

jasee

Power is very easily adjustable simply by changing the voltage across the element. You can do this with a standard fixed power, non-thermoststic soldering iron using a light dimmer switch.

If this really is thermostatically controlled it's a good deal, there are plenty of cheap temperature adjustable soldering irons that are not though (Maplins were selling them for a fiver a couple of years back).

Jasee - the only way you can adjust the temperature is by varying the power. This is true for thermostatically controlled irons as well, they just tend to do it by switching on and off.

I've not seen a sub £25 thermostatically controlled iron.
