Get a nice Hakko or Weller and you will be happy for a very long time. However, they are far more expensive so maybe not for everyone.

polarbaba

Depends on the level of competence. Anyone would themselves judge that it may be beyond their capabilities. For example I'm not the world's best SMD solderer, so I abstain from messing about with SMD stuff.

maxmix

I would not advise anyone to try and open any laptop battery ! They are glued together for a reason ! If you are experienced at desoldering and changing over 18650 cells that are inside, fair enough ! If not it's one of the worst replies 'Of advice' i've seen on here ! maxmix

stealth666

and good solder too...

stealth666

I use a 25w yellow one with a small tip for basic single component stuff a bit bigger poker for car stuff, often I'd say it was a lot down to technique than the iron itself, wicking braid, tinning components etc

Lydskyd

30 watt nae use you need at least 80 watt for serious board work! (poo)

chezybezy

For future ref, would any of the "fixed temp" Antex ones be better than a budget temperature controlled / changing one such as the lidl station one?

imranafzall

£4.99 postage and handling is too much if you're buying anything not worth much.

matthat

Just so there is no confusion - this is a cheap soldering iron, if you want to do a bit of diy / fix a few items about the house this will last you for years, it's a great bit of kit and it comes with a pump (I have only used the pump a few times but it's hard to do without). I doubt if you will be able to find cheaper

matthat

probably be fine for it if the repair guides don't mention a micro or special tip - I think you would have problems soldering anything under 1mm.

johnnyd57uk

Many thanks for the info. Will do.

deleted2217480

Those are great, but I've moved onto soldering irons that use direct heat technology, whereby the tip contains the heating element - even the Chinese T12 Hakko knockoffs perform really well and for about £2-4 per tip. The new tech is such a huge improvement on the old style tips.

Trash iron. Buy a good one.

I said I use a 25w iron for most stuff, that includes electronics, its the old version of this:- https://www.rapidonline.com/Antex-S58J4H8-XS25W-Soldering-Iron-230V-with-Silicone-Cable-and-13A-Plug-85-1145?IncVat=1&pdg=pla-301834893510:kwd-301834893510:cmp-757438067:adg-44804851896:crv-207912323492:pid-85-1145:dev-c&gclid=Cj0KCQiAs67yBRC7ARIsAF49CdUVIJU2619PT4olluMHQknD2GFF8dkdciqphB8kDUASuJRrTCp-NAoaAmRdEALw_wcB currently about £25 and the bits for it cost more than this iron. I wasn't particularly disagreeing with you, just pointing out 60w watt would not be a good choice for electronics as it would get too hot. 25w-30w used to be considered a good general purpose iron. I use the 70w for soldering stuff like marine band antenna plugs (25w wouldn't get hot enough and would melt the pvc sleeving before the solder) and soldering bits of thin steel.

aLV426

Exactly my point - you suggest 60w is a bit high, then state you use a 70w iron? As I pointed out it all depends on what you are going to use it for. Since the user didn't specify it's rather a moot point?

micronX7

I only needed a new tip for a Weller but now have 3, a spare soldering iron and kit (two more tips) and some solder all for under £12 delivered. (y)

matthat

Although I think it will fit I am not sure how well - I have measured the shaft and it is 5.5mm / where as the duratool one seems to be 4.8mm , the tips seem to work from radiant heat as there is a gap as the shaft hole mesures 6mm (so an extra 0.7mm space) https://cpc.farnell.com/duratool/d01843-c1-2/tip-0-5mm-for-d01843/dp/SD01769#anchorTechnicalDOCS

matthat

Depending on what you want to do - if you just want to repair electronics or solder some wires together then just a real of solder , but if you want to just heat things up then no you don't need anything - it just plugs in like a hair dryer.

Picked 2 up on the 16th. First one packed in within 3 days. 2nd one stopped working today 😔 The light for the on/off switch comes on but both are cold to the touch even after waiting an hour with them set at max heat. Both going back tomorrow.

Wowhats

Picked one up this morning, the very small rolls of solder wire, spare flat point and cleaning cloth are tucked away in a little compartment. Seems a reasonable bit of kit. Thanks OP for posting, heat added.

chezybezy

Yep, in store today. Picked one up. They also had welding wire - am I correct in assuming this isn't usable for the soldering station?

zone_player

In store on Sunday 19th according to the in store magazine. Have the battery one which heats up near instantly and lasts ages on a set of rechargeable AA’s however fancy this for the stand and mat thing to wipe your tip on

thelondontrader

Yes but honestly, don't use a damp sponge, use one of these: Brass Wool. Does a better job and does not change the temp of the tip; [start at 8'14'']

HorseBoxGuy

Yes, definitely a bit wet, but not dripping.

pwel

Damp, not soaked.

arCuThEDOWDr

A newbie question on soldering irons - should the cleaning sponge be wet when used? Mine is full of black strips and I'm concerned it's leaving bits of melted sponge on the tip and ruining it.

thelondontrader

To the same standard you mean? TS100 looks really nice but cheaper I could get would be 35-40 quid.

It was the Soldering Station that caught my eye as I paid pretty much the same for less items, last night (separate pieces, mind).

Are these even deals? Seems like crap at usual prices

Proveright

The Multi meter is rubbish. In the days of Maplin those type we're on offer between £1 to £2 each and they weren't even worth that. The soldering station is worth the money, on par in price with Ali express sellers.

The next best thing to a Metcal / Oki iron (which I use at both work and home) for heavier duty jobs. Just be warned, these often have quite a low duty cycle so you can only use them for 20 seconds or so per minute.

sdduk2

Just bought this and paid £11.04p but where its says buy now it says £9.38p and there is no RRP: its blank so whats going on? Bit Confussed.

MrFizzy

This is for the bigger stuff. Sometimes you need to solder something that will just soak the heat away from a smaller unit e.g. pcb mount BNC shells, large ground plains or other big connectors/terminals etc. Alternatively you might be using these for none electronics type soldering. They definitely have their place but, you're right, these aren't for fine work! If this is reasonable quality then £10 is a bargain.

Looks a bit cumbersome for a soldering iron/gun be hard pushed to solder circuits with that between your paws

It's not a cooker and it won't bake cupcakes. (excited) It is a soldering iron. It does produce a flame but I don't believe it can bake cupcakes.

Norseg

Dodge62

Good price for an Antex, but fiddly flint-based ignition. The Aldi one is piezo-electric, which is way better. I have several gas soldering irons (don't ask why, I'm not sure either) and the Aldi one is very effective if a little on the chunky side. The 'child safety' is a bit annoying too, but that's not a major issue.

I just picked mine up, normally a deal like that, it's out of stock from my local homebase but they still have 4 in stock. At £23, you can't go wrong and I like how it even heatshrinks, saves the fingers getting burned from a lighter. This is so much convenient than getting my solder station out. I love dremel tools, they are pricy but quality. I only buy when it's on sale and agree, like how it comes in a nice tin case.

GoNz0-

Same reason I bought one, even does the heatshrink so double thumbs up from me. Fancy metal tin as well so it won't fall to bits.

gordon.ash

Tips seen to be cheaper than most too at around a fiver. My gascat tips cost over a tenner.

mumihp

Heat. Thanks so much, my local has 5 in stock, plus HB is only 4 mins away from car. This appealed to me since I do smaller jobs on my car, wiring and getting the solder station out is a pain and bulky. This would be a great tool to have without needed to connect to power.

trannyboy

I've had a chance today to check out the tip availability, plenty of places you can go with different prices for the same tips. The way they fit in the iron is by a screw thread that screws into the heating element, as long as they don't seize or become too loose they will be fine for most home jobs and that wood burning patterns craft ,pyrography I think it's called.

RoosterNo1

lead free is terrible Solder... stick with old stuff. As for 25w being to "small", I used a 15w iron for years for soldering components onto pcb.

No, it doesn't come pre-filled. It doesn't come with a gas canister either. You have to buy one. You can use lighter fuel/gas and get it for £1 from the pound shops. (y)

Correct, I don't think it's allowed . Either way, you'll have to get a gas canister to refill anyway, and they are cheap, so it shouldn't be a bother.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think it doesn't come with gas pre-filled, so you need to have purified butane gas to start with.

How can you tell me that my experiences with this device aren’t true; I’m a electronics engineer of thirty years standing trained in the RAF, I bought this to use in the field as I repair many coax RF cable systems and it’s junk, I bought the battery one through frustration from lidl and it works a treat, nothing personal here, it’s a fact, perhaps I got the only under performing item in the country...keep your unsubstantiated opinions about my experiences to yourself.

Milki_bar_Kid

I have this soldering iron and none of the above is true! And you are actually recommending a battery soldering iron, ROFL

jasee

You mean modern leadless solder? Agreed. Nothing worse than an iron which does heat up enough or quickly. It also seems to be a bit difficult to fill 'It's easier for my wife to suck a golfball through a hosepipe than it is to refill this' :)
