Picked one up, super useful for some situations not being stuck on a cord. Comes with some solder, only one tip though and seems to be a screw mount that looks a bit like a light bulb screw, so not sure wether you can replacement tips.


Bought one today. Very impressed.


Because it's only 8W XD


I have no idea why this is not far hotter. Its an excellent small soldering iron. Thank you for posting.


Handy for people who want to do small jobs.

That's important to me. Bits don't last long and only one of each size. Can't really vote it hot From the previous deal it seems that these MAY be the bits


After having a parkside soldering iron literally explode in my hand - I’ll give this one a wide birth thanks


It’s cheap for what it is. Handy DIY tool


I believe it's a norm nowadays :(


You cannot get spare bits for these, so would avoid

To be honest at this price I'd just buy a normal cheapy soldering station. You're unlikely to use more than a couple of pointed tips and maybe a chisel tip. Plus using decent quality solder can make soldering 10 times easier


Thank you for update :)


Bought in November and it is a good iron. Very happy with it.


Thank you :)

For those who bought the station these spare tips fit


....Possibly why the stations were removed from website and empty spaces on many shelves...


Not recommended. In my opinion potentially dangerous. I've just bought one of these at Maidenhead - they had several. I needed a second iron for occasional use at my studio, so took a chance on this suspiciously cheap offer. Warning 1: The cable strain relief at the end of the iron itself does not securely grip the cable, which is free to rotate (at least on my sample). The wire is therefore liable to fracture or disconnect in time. There is mains voltage going to the iron - could be a big bang if the live wire comes loose, or compromised safety if the earth wire fractures. I wrapped some self-amalgamating tape around the body of the iron and the strain moulding to avoid these problems. Warning 2: The tip of the iron extends beyond the bottom of the support spring, so when hot it's a hazard to cables and people. Both the iron's cables have mains voltage on them, and the iron could melt through the insulation when it's apparently safely stowed in its holder. Warning 3: The solder that comes with the iron is 60/40 tin/lead. Toxic fumes! The iron gets hot enough for lead-free solder, so no excuse for this. The manual includes appropriate health warnings, but you can't see these until you've bought and opened the box. Note 1: The iron is not temperature controlled, just power controlled as far as I can see from a quick look inside the base. There's a triac, a trimpot, some filter components but not a lot else inside. The mains earth and neutral wires are joined straight to the soldering iron, the live goes via the simple electronics. I have 40 years experience as an electronics engineer and am confident there's no temperature sensor.


No stations for me but the cordless one is surprisingly good


Been to Lidl the past 3 days. Managed to get soldering station but didn’t look for the rotary multitool. Past 2 days there have been tons of soldering stations but no multitools. Gutted!

I asked the question on Amazon about the voltage. They replied saying it was 220V and have changed picture to reflect that I think. So looks a pretty good deal.


Looks a good deal as long as the 240v/earthing situation can be confirmed.


Had that on here last year!


Ah, I was expecting it to be more complicated than that lol Thanks for the info!

Frequently if Chinese stuff comes with a fuse, it is a counterfeit one


Can you get non fusible resistors though ;) I just thought it was a bit tight. If it did blow you wouldn't even be able to read the markings to replace it. At least the cheap chaddy ebay stuff normally comes with a proper fuse AND if you get really lucky they put in in the L line rather than the N XD


You can get fusible resistors ;)


In picture 2, are they using a resistor as a fuse? I might take my old one apart and see what that has inside, last thing I used it for was as an ashtray lol. If the handle connection is 24v you may be able to mod it to take a knockoff Hakko handle. More trouble than its worth probably, but something to do when you're bored XD


Bought it and I regret. What's inside Parkside PLSD 48 A1? Tips, probably same as on previous models. As others said, they were pretty bad. At least, I can control temperature, not a power, like on cheaper irons. I will check accuracy of temperature and update this post. Update: Around 20-30°C (tried 2 different tips) less @ 300°C and 400°C. Another thing, sometimes it stops warming up for 2-5s at random temperatures and when temperature on LCD hit 400°C, multimeter shows 340°C and it takes another 20-30s to stop at 375°C. Next time, I will buy Hakko 936 clone(wep,huakko,yihua). Cheap tips and spare parts. I can even replace control board with original Hakko panel.

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:- I was right about this one posted previously though :-


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


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.


I agree spend more money and buy a branded one that has been tested to UK standards and will not electrocute you.


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.

My Antex was £15 delivered, from eBay in 2011. My first 2 soldering irons were from Lidl, and after that I decided to get something more long-lasting, with a ready availability of replacement bits. I find the Antex easier to work with than the Lidl ones: but then again, it's possible I've just become better at soldering over the years. e.g. back when I was starting out with my Lidl ones I doubt I was cleaning and tinning the tip enough.


How much did you Antex cost for just the iron? A replacement bit for an Antex is nearly the cost of this iron.


£3.90 for the iron now (fierce)


That's a Lidl soldering iron, which was only £6.99 in store. Mine didn't last long at all- I'm much happier with my Antex 25W which replaced it.


I would say 40 watts is a bit on the high side for soldering electronics, although if you are reasonably skilled you'd probably get away with it. As I recall they used to recommend 15 to 25w for a fixed wattage iron. I have an old 25w Antex with a silicone flex, that I bought decades ago, I went to the higher end because I often needed to solder moderately thick wiring as well as electronic parts, otherwise I'd have got a 17W. CPC have a budget variable wattage (it is not temperature controlled) soldering station for £14 it seems to be a copy of one Maplin sold years ago, don't know what the quality is like.

I've purchased similar iron in the past. They are all the same just re-branded. The adjusting knob does not work and even in the lowest position the tip glows red hot. It burns everything including wires rendering them useless. I am a cheap fu*k but one thing that I would not use is a *cheap* two pin Chinese soldering iron. I'm emphasising on cheap since China makes good products but this is a waste of money.


Following my earlier post, soldering irons are also good for plastic welding, such as cracked plastic car bumpers. No need to buy new or secondhand replacements. Search YouTube Peters Garage.


Here's some other soldering offers on CPC Solder Station for £12 :- (note like the mustool iron it is not temperature controlled) Tenma 60W Digital ESD Soldering Station £45 :- Hot air 300w rework station £48 :- 8w ! SMD solder station :-


Electronics engineer here, would never go near a 12w iron for electronics or electrical purpose, wattage too low. I have always used a temp control 50w iron around 350 to 400° but have gone higher when soldering large electrical wires to lugs etc. Also use a gas iron when working with electrical stuff or for wiring in the car. But wouldn't use for electronics as it's too hot for that and the exhaust emits hot gas/air that could damage loose wires and connectors that may incidentally be there.


But for just £4 you can buy an iron from a UK supplier and not risk electrocution each time you use it!

Try looking in their bargain corner or one of the numerous booklets they send you when you purchase something:- They sometimes have several different offer prices running on the same item - depends on the last two digits added to the product code.


Yes, they do look a lot like the Mapin ones. I've had 3 from Maplin. They're basically just a standard soldering iron with a light dimmer control. I've found they last a coupe of years and then burn out - hence 3 of them. (now using a proper temperature controlled one)


Funny thing, if I go through their online book and find this product it costs more than your link: Looks like it is the same item. How did you come about your link and does it apply to other items in the same way?


Heat added - pun intended! I have one of these and OK for occasional 'amateur' use. You can buy spare tips and I'd recommend a smaller one for soldering electronic components. Very similar model slightly cheaper at CPC Mark


It looks very much like the one I bought from Maplin years ago. If it is the same then I can wholeheartedly recommend. I'm a pretty poor solderer but I have achieved good results with mine time after time.

Rodger is completely wrong , Its a great fun build , yes its challanging , but its supposed to be .

Great fun build , the hardest bit is programming the thing .


They'll declare it lower than the value. But I'd say anyone buying this has about a 0.025% chance of getting it built and working. If anyone is that proficient at hand-soldering SMT components, they'd be busy hacking Xbones and PS4's, not messing with this, on balance, unbuilt tat. :p


I believe the limit is £15. Please see


How is £17 cheap or a deal for a piece of worthless tat?

That's just crazy. Hopefully you got at least a refund and an apology from the seller or the manufacturer. That could really have hurt someone. (Note that I was going to say that's just nuts but I didn't want to make a crap pun. :D)


I wouldn't buy cheap mains stuff on ebay! I doubt it is much cop, but here's a cheapo 60W one on CPC, but would need to spend an extra £1.50 to get over the £5 minimum spend for fee delivery :- If you buy a cheap soldering iron check the bit stays firmly secure when it is hot. I bought a cheap 50w iron some years ago from Tilgear, and despite tightening the grub screw that held the tip when it was both cold then hot, the tip fell out and bounced off the item I was soldering. It fell over the side of the bench and burnt through the crutch of my trousers, just missing my vitals. It then slide down the leg, and burn out at the knee. I was lucky I just got a light burn down the inside of my right leg and several holes in a vacuum cleaner hose which was the next thing it hit, plus a ruined pair of trousers and a slightly scorched shoe. Turned out the tip was made of iron and no matter how tight the screw was, the tip would contract enough to fall out whenever it was touched on metal.
