Seems like a very decent piece of equipment for the price. It includes UK adaptor which I counted in.

●It is no need soldering station, just plug and play,also it with soft grip and non-slip handle
●High quality long lasting ceramic type heater
●Adjustable temperature controlled soldering irons: 200-450 °C
●Ideal for hobbies, kits, radios, laptop,computer and electronics work
●We use iron plated tip and stainless steel construction ,it can offer longer steel construction offer longer life .
●CE and RoHs certification



Operating:
●Clean the parts to be joined
●Clean soldering iron tip and "tin" all faces of tip with a coating of solder
●Heat parts ,not solder, to be joined.
●Apply flux-core solder to heated parts, not tit till solder me soldering tip ,and heat it till solder melts and flows freely



Note:
●When the soldering iron is plugged in for the first time, there comes out a smoke from the tip end.
●The smoke stops in a smoke while and a smoke never comes out again
●After finish the longer life tip face
●Use soldering stand and other aids to avoid burnt fingers.
●Don't pull the soldering iron tip outward and use it in that way, which will shorten the heating element life.

60w is very large for modern electronics.
Adjustable temperature controlled soldering irons: 200-450 °C
I think it's adjustable and 60W is just as powerful as it gets. The temperature ranges between 200-450 degress
Went through checkout, got to about 9 quid with del'?
I buy a lot of Chinese electronics but had my 'fingers burnt' with chinese soldering irons, non have out lasted or out performed a really old antex iron
Cold - NO EARTH!

And I bet it isn't double insulated either.

Wear rubber gloves as there is a risk of electrocution when the element fails.

Looking at the listing, the UK version is actually fitted with a UK 3 pin plug, not an adaptor as per the OP's post, so they might have fitted a 3 core flex if you are lucky. Check for continuity between the tip and the earth pin if you buy it, and if the tip isn't earthed put it in the trash.

Commented before on this, have one with three pin plug and there's continuity from32116243-VrrTc.jpg earth to tip. If failed it would trip .

Reading the OP's post and a quick glance at the product listing mislead me into believing it was fitted with a 2 pin plug and supplied with a uk adaptor, hence my initial post.

Having seen the varying build quality and cost cutting of Chinese goods, I would still recommend anyone buying this to check for earth pin to tip continuity before first use.

Or tighten up the earth connection. It seems quite common on soldering stations from China to either leave the earth wire dangling inside or not tightened down. For all the time it takes it seems strange. Maybe they don't understand how serious an issue it is.
GBP £ 2.46 for cheapest delivery
Might as well cut your bread with a stick, it'll be easier than soldering with the POS.
Bought one similar to this from Amazon. It really is cr8p.
very cheap electric goods from china = dangerous equipment.

For the few pounds saved it is not worth potential danger. I have bought a few cheap transformers/equipment with allegedly uk plugs to find they had no earth cabling.

Just buy them from cheap uk suppliers instead. You really are not saving much.

I agree spend more money and buy a branded one that has been tested to UK standards and will not electrocute you.
I have something very similar to this but with earth clip. It doesn't have enough thermal capacity for some jobs, for example I wanted to remove a connection to a small/thin copper plate on a power supply that I was fixing and it couldn't do it. However, it was good for the Sn/Pb wires for small jobs. Plus, I wouldn't trust that temperature dial.

I just ordered the "Hakko" T12 DIY Kit for about $10 ... got some good review on Youtube.

My advice is to save your money ... and get the T12 kit.

Sounds like it's time to get Big Clive on the case!

morrighas done the job already


But, if he took one apart, I think there's a fair chance he'd find it isn't actually temperature controlled and doesn't have a temperature sensor, just a triac based dimmer circuit, see this image of the banggood one:- zimagez.com/ful…php

I was right about this one posted previously though :- hotukdeals.com/com…457
