I have one I got out of Aldi or Lidl, I can't remember which. It is fine. It doesn't heat up as quickly as a good electric one, but it does the job and doesn't need a cable which is a massive plus.

Thanks, I had just been wondering if there was any particular benefit in gas over electric or vice versa so appreciate the reply, I'll look out for one of these once they are available to buy.
Guess these might be good in the car, not sure if I would use this in the house tbh,
Did buy a.electric parkside soldering iron and hate it lol, normally used a xytronic one, which I love.
A gas soldering iron is good for quick soldering. Issue with gas against electric is that gas doesn’t have a temperature limit so will keep getting hotter so can potentially damage what you are soldering rather than actually solder the joint

Electric is always better. Heats up faster and tip temp is regulated.

Gas is portable. Good for emergencies and locations where there are no plugs. Great in small tight spaces. Also good as a mini blow torch.

Having owned and used a Gas one, switching to an electric one with temp control has been such a big difference.
know its in a different price bracket but Love my TS100 just so much more versatile. (i have it setup so i can run it of my cordless drill batteries or a Laptop charger. using between 12v and 24v does give quite some options as in how to power it.

Still a good deal but i wouldn't want to have to do any fine soldering with a Gas iron after having had the joys of a portable temp controlled Electric one.

TS80 is USB powered if anyone after portable electric one (but around £40, more than double the price of this gas one).

Would something like this be any good as an alternative to the Lidl one, just for occasional use?

i would recon it would be but do be mindful you need mains power for that.
not sure it my self obviously but having temperature control is great specially if your doing fine electrical soldering and the removable tips are handy as well.
Got a set from Camberley store today. Wife gave me that look when she saw me playing with fire. Hey don't worry babs
