BUMP Just a reminder for anyone who is interested, this is available in store tomorrow :)
I found this video helpful when deciding which microscope to buy - He compares three different ones in different price ranges. Obviously the more expensive ones are better, but I went with the cheapest one because I'm not too concerned about video quality as long as I can basically see what I'm doing better than with the naked eye, and the main advantage of the more expensive ones is they have their own screens, which I don't really need as I solder on the same desk as my desktop PC, which has arm mounted monitors so I can just move one of those into a comfortable position for soldering when I need it, otherwise I might have gone for the mid-range one. So is the TS100 really that much more inconvenient to use with a power supply plugged into the back of it than any other wired soldering iron? Or does it depend which type of cable you use? I was looking at getting one because I've been struggling with a couple of soldering projects recently and I'm not sure if it's me or the equipment I'm using so I thought I'd try a new iron before I go back to soldering school! Although I could probably do with some better solder and flux as well...
Just done some searching and it looks like you are right. The rechargeable version has a black grip round the top and a LED light on the end. The photos and description don't show a charging base or wire either. The rechargeable one seems to be around £15-£17 when it is sold.
Thanks so much! Makes a massive difference for me.
Amazing response, thank you very much.
