This compact but 80 Watt-powerful stationary soldering iron is a great entry-level soldering station with all the fixins. It’s not much more expensive than the chunky ‘all-in-one” irons, but comes with a separate power supply and pen. Heats up fast and solders both lead and lead-free solder like a champ!
The powering station is equipped with a temperature control knob lock. After setting the desired temperature, press the Lock button to save your heat setting. The heater light blinks on and off when the iron tip reaches the set temperature.
The included metal iron holder provides a safe way to put aside your soldering iron while still hot, and also includes a brass sponge. There’s even a spool holder for your solder to stay right where you need it. With proper care, it can last for many years and projects. Turn it off when not in use and clean the plated tip with a slightly damp sponge (no filing or sanding!)

The plug is 110 US-style and can only be used in 110V countries! Do not attempt to use a plug-converter with this soldering iron to use in 220V countries.
