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!

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!

Pic looks identical to the 'older' one I bought 18 months ago, so you're probably right :)


When you say older model. isn't this exactly the same? just been brought back out onto the shop floor again? I bought mine last year and can't see it being any different to this one.


I did the same and bought a dremel, but if I can find another tip, I have a spare/one for the car or something :)


​Wouldn't a lighter be... Lighter?


Take one into maplin and get them to find you one that fits.. I've got an older workzone one and there's a few maplin tips that worked. Sure they'll be the same for this one

Mine lasted about 3 uses. Soldering iron heat is fine but the tip screws into the end and the thread isn't cut right so it ends up rounding off inside and then all the tip fall out when they are hot. Just bought an amazon special for £20 with all the extras and a carry case.


Lidl seem to be bringing the northern irish offers in early lately so this might be in stock in mainland uk in a few weeks.


My Lidl one didn't last long. I'm a lot happier with my Antex XS25, which has lasted about 6 years so far.


Cold. Ouch. HOT!


Hope its better than Aldi Workzone as that didn't last 5 minutes compared to my 15 year old Antec

Seems very expensive, you can get a temperature controlled solder station for under 50 quid from a uk supplier with a proper guarantee, easy to return if faulty and no risk of customs charges and should be built to uk electrical standards.


This is just a simple soldering station (no hot air involved) and you seem to get a set of tips (I hope 10) but they are all different types with very different uses. A set of ten (different types) cost £26.16! Although they say these tips last 3-4 times the length of normal tips, this is still very expensive.

I'm still using a weller from the 70s, handed down to me from my dad. Resoldered most keys on my mech kb yesterday after not using it for a year or two, and of course still no issues. If you want one that will last a lifetime, get a weller. For light use I'm sure this is fine.


what a polite man you are!


Can these be used on other makes of car?


**** company


X) Don't be silly, totally different budget, a similar Weller would be about 700% more expensive. No need for a casual user to splash out that much.

They were on sale from last Sunday but there were still some in my local Lidl during the week.

Probably best that you take the plug off the end of the iron too. so he don't burn himself or his sister. and don't give him the pliers incase he cuts her fingers and toes off.


An OK present for a kid to get them interested in electronics, there's plenty of work in this area for advanced technicians. I'd make sure the kid you do buy it for doesn't go testing mains voltage with it though, they need to be aware of the dangers involved.

from the manual: With 3 new batteries you can use the cordless soldering iron for approximately 60 minutes without an interruption. More than enough time to get someone talking.


Would this be powerful enough to solder the pins on a Raspberry Pi Zero? If not can anyone point me to a cheap USB/mains one?


10x that wattage is what you need for a decent iron.


having spent days messing about repairing old peugeot wiring looms, I can confirm that anything under 20w is useless, I will actually buy one of these setups myself as this looks fab! being outside soldering you lose so much temp in the iron so quickly :(


I did not know AA batteries could deliver current like that? Well I normally only use in remotes, and portable radios,etc. Presumably will be changing batteries every hour or two?
