We already carry this great everyday soldering iron with a USA plug, but we didn’t want our friends across the pond to be left out! So now we stock both the Euro and UK plug versions!
“C’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron! On n’est jamais si bien servi que par soi-même!”
Practice makes perfect! If you want things done right, DIY is the way to go! You re-work hard all day, so treat yourself with the BEST portable Adjustable Soldering Iron we carry! C’est le meilleur! OK, “Best” may be subjective, but it’s also the name of the brand, so voilà! But, sérieusement, mes amis, this is a really nice iron, good enough for every-day use. We dig the slim pen iron (so comfortable to hold), adjustable-temperature (oooh, regardez, there’s a little control box!), durable grounded cord, and fast 60 Watt heat up!
When you don’t need a full soldering ‘battle station’, this pen-type iron will work bien, either on a bench-top or in a tool box. It can handle any task you throw at it, and the handy control box sets the temperature. Once the soldering is complete and the iron has cooled off, you can easily coil it up to keep your work space clean and tidy.
This soldering iron has an adjustable temperature range from 280ºC to 480ºC. For most lead-free soldering, try 400°C. For lead-based solder, 350°C will do. Adjust as necessary! It may not be as powerful or easy-to-use as the full stand-up Hakko, but it is a lot more portable. We also carry a soldering iron stand (and a deluxe model as well) in case you want to keep it from rolling around your desk.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
