Most shops that sell cigarettes. Also discount stores and pound shops normally sell the stuff. It just uses regular gas lighter refill.
I have the Dremel version of this tool and it gets used way more than I expected. It's great for working on car electronics outdoors. Also very good for quick fixes/repairs where you don't want to dig out the solder station and wait ages for it to heat up. This thing reaches operating temp in seconds.

if you are not sure about getting one of these they are the kind of item that aldi sell and usually have plenty of stock left after the initial rush and will probably be reduced in a month or so, it may be worth taking the risk to save a few extra pennies. (equally they may sell out and you miss it completely)

Gas powered soldering irons are great. I have a Draper one adn I cant remember for sure but I think I paid ab0out tyhe same money for that. Possibly a quid or two more. I'd defo recommend it if you can stretch a couple of quid I'd go for that. I've had mine years now.

In comparison to the item you linked to, gas powered irons can reach/sustain higher temps and are variable. And there's no need to keep or hope the batteries are charged. They also typically include an assortment of extra tips/attachments that let you use them for more than just simple soldering. For example, mine has a mini blowtorch tip that lets me caramelise the sugar on my crème brûlée .

I bought one last time they had them and it's brilliant

Might have to have a pop at this. Can it be used a bit like a blow torch / heat gun with no tips for things like surface mount?

Banned

also have one from last time they had it, has been going on and on, Im still on my original gas stick although running low now but have done loads of stuff with it and its cartridge just keeps going and going.

Anyone know how many watts this thing puts out and whether you can source replacement tips easily enough?

If not, maybe a fiver more for an Iroda 70 would be a better investment long term.

Agreed with everyone who likes using gas soldering irons, we use Weller pyro pens at work and whilst they aren't cheap -£90ish they are very well made, have variable heat output and we don't even bother with the electric ones any more ha !
