Antex don't appear to do anything USB powered.


If Big Clive or John Ward says its ok that is good enough for me! (y)


Buy Antex.... Avoid this like the plague ;) Oh and Aye.... I've been soldering for about 40 years ;) maxmix


As with all the other owners, I find this thing is pretty handy and heats up nicely. So far I've only ever run it of a 2A USB power bank and it's done everything I wanted it to.


Thanks. Found one on eBay UK for $4.89. Paid with Revolut £3.87 delivered.

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.


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.


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


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.


How does it fit to my Dremel drill?

The tips are replaceable and, you can get finer tips.


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.

It's not really a sensible choice to use leaded solder for DIY projects where extraction will be non existent.


Nearly got this as I have a large soldering / hot air station that is a bit of a pig to use in cars. I spotted the Dremel Versatip set for £23.75 and took a punt on that


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.


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.


So is this variable temperature?

I wouldn't be so hasty, The Lidl one looks like a total copy of the Dremel, imitation is the best form of flattery!. The tips looked the same when I saw it last weekend .


Picked mine up today got the Lidl one two weeks ago for £15 need to take back think the dremel one will be better


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.

Still lots of stock at Blackwater branch. Sold out at Camberley.


Got a set from Camberley store today. Wife gave me that look when she saw me playing with fire. Hey don't worry babs XD


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.


Would something like this be any good as an alternative to the Lidl one, just for occasional use?π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=soldering+iron&dpPl=1&dpID=51sw2QnPgqL&ref=plSrch


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

Parkside Soldering Iron £5.99 @Lidl (Instore)
Updated 2nd JanLast updated 2nd Jan by YTopia
Good basic soldering iron for the occasional job, was £7.99 now £5.99 instore at my local (marked up on shelf and not in the clearance stuff).

Not necessarily. Normally I'd use a MAP blowtorch or pushfits. It was simply a mere thought as I've only seen this product for electronics. Get off your high horse. (y) 🏼


Lol could you film yourself trying to solder 15mm pipework with this iron. Would love to see it :)


The fact you were asking if you could use a soldering iron for the job screams warning signs. Frankly I burst out laughing at the suggestion. You're not even sure on the tools to use. You should call a plumber.


Not for simple pipework.


Thought so.

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.


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


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' :)


Bought similar from Aldi for same price


Get a Dremel one myself, and though before I had it I was questioning wether I'd use it - I have never used a wired one since!

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.

Poor reviews on the Aldi website


If you're writing the script for the new Carry On movie. You should have made the thread about Crumpet in Cockermouth, not a soldering iron :D Or maybe there's a joke somewhere about having a red hot tip you're saving for later (embarrassed)

Mine's absolutely fine. It's a bit bulky, and not as good as my £75 Weller Portasol (unsurprisingly) but for the price it's fantastic value. Were you perhaps using lead-free solder? I'm afraid my concern for the environment stops at soldering and I only use old-school lead/tin solder.

Not much, unless you buy some solder too. There's a good selection of cheap irons on CPC, although I think you have to spend £10 to get free delivery. This one is £4.74 and has a silicone lead (heat proof and more flexible) £12 will get one with adjustable power

I use mine for electronics and restoring old radio's never let's me down, the soldering tips, If you can't find on ebay, then find some of the same diameter cut them to down size and use a die to put a thread on them, "Not rocket science".


Had a punt as good price, added some cheap air freshner 89p to get free delivery, Thx OP :)


It's not rocket science to get spare tips for this, it's just a cylinder of a certain size. Top tip I found when soldering us use flux paste and tip tinner to keep everything clean, otherwise you just end up with a rusty bit and a blob of solder that won't stick. (y)


The ones I have looked on ebay - are dangerous. They lack safety features and the temperature controls are mostly fake. With a Lidl product you know its genuinely has passed safety checks and does not have fake branding. They may come with cheap tips but I would put safety before cheap parts.


Please can you post some ebay IDs/ links? I'm on the lookout for a decent one, and you seem to know your stuff - thanks in advance.

Sorry mate - some people are beyond help, you fall into that category.


You're still somehow missing the point @pennyfarthing88. What you're suggesting is tantamount to posting up the entire internet on HUKD. If I happen on that Antex iron for a fiver I'll post it up, because that would be a deal. A tenner is it's normal price, so it's not a deal. A Lidl soldering iron for two quid less isn't a deal. If I was to take your approach of posting up the entire Lidl tool selection every other week I could claim as many posted deals as you, but I have the gumption to know when something is a deal and when it isn't, so I don't. I really couldn't give a toss what people think, this is a deal site not my social circle.π=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=antex+soldering+irons&dpPl=1&dpID=21HI-dI5tyL&ref=plSrchπ=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=antex+40w


The tips look as though they screw into the end of the iron, never seen this type of tip fitting so indeed probably difficult to get spares. The tips we use at work cost about £5 each and are readily available Weller spares, they are solid copper with an iron plating, using modern ROHS compliant lead free solder the temperature we need to set our irons to ranges from 350-390 centigrade. Tips without plating won't last too long but as this product is also used for wood burning this is not an issue and means this product could last many years if used for that. Our soldering stations cost about £400 but are used all day everyday , I owned an Antex 25watt mains powered iron for years and the tips are readily available even today.

Handy for people who don't always have access to electric in their line of work (me for example). Working on a remote site for example. I'd be lost without a gas iron.
