Got one of these works well. Only complaint is it's very awkward to get on and off the base when trying to use the cordless mode

I think, I'll stick then!
These are great, not to be confused with the low powered rubbish you usually see which are not much good for anything other than sticking sequins on stuff.

They get the glue seriously hot which allows a degree of repositioning and a much, much, stronger bond ...plus a good chance of some nasty burns if you're not careful!

Had mine for at least 15 years and it's still going strong but as @gazdoubleu says the stand is a bit awkward.

You don't have to use it cordless and it's better not to so the glue stays at it's hottest.
Stand is awkward as others have said - also glue doesn't dry quick enough (or sometimes at all - remaining stringy and tacky) - if you've strong cardboard boxes to glue it's pretty useless - looks and feels a decent bit of kit but I'm going back to a rubbishy feeling loctite one where the bond (which the same glue) is almost instant - there's an issue with temperature somewhere
You can get corded with sticks cheaper, I got one with 50 sticks for £8.99 from Amazon. Great price if you want/need cordless though so hot from me.
Got one of these and had others over the years. Never had any success gluing anything with them. Must be me.

Not all glue sticks are the same, I bought some from Poundland and they were absolute crap, If you try again with a decent stick you'll have better luck.
Take a look at paintless dent removal on youtube and you'll see some can even be strong enough to pull dented car panels out which I've used them for.

Lol, that's the biggest advantage of this over the low powered ones and yours is working perfectly but would agree for your specific use a crappy craft one would be more suitable.

Try glueing together a couple of more substantial items together that suck the heat out of the glue and you'l find the low powered ones just end up with a not very well bonded lump between them, this will let the glue squidge out like you want and leave a much better joint.
Damn it! I don't need one, but I've just got to have one!
I got a cheap rolson one with barely any instructions and wasn't sure what difference the temperature switch made. From what I now understand, it's to make the glue runnier so you have longer to reposition the item you are sticking. Is that right?

Do they all start dripping a bit when you leave it to heat up? My one does it quite a bit

Very right, Can you recommend strong glue sticks for paintless dents ,i got paintless dent tools but glue gun is crap and perhaps the glue sticks too.I will try this cordless glue gun.

I've been using the Weylon glue sticks from Amazon and they stick very well to the car paint, just make sure you remove any car polish before using or they won't stick as well (acetone or isopropyl alcohol works well)

I had this parkside glue gun, it only lasted few month, for me it didn't work.
However I would recommend ronsel Brand, mini glue gun , costs around £5 or less.
