This handy little soldering iron will work anywhere you have USB power, which let’s face it, is basically everywhere these days. Even if it’s from a laptop or power bank, USB power is almost easier to come by than mains power when away from the home or office, or in the workshop or shed. Unlike a conventional mains iron which heats up persistently, this one has a touch-switch to activate, and it rapidly heats to 380-400°C in just 15 seconds, and you’re ready to solder. The heating element is rated at 8W, so it’s useful for fine electronics and small jobs not sinking a lot of heat (such as thick cables, better left for appropriate soldering irons). The heating element is integrated into the soldering tip, so heating and cooling is very rapid. Includes a long life tip, protective cap, and USB power cable.
Note - at 8W, your USB port will need to be rated with at least 2A, which most newer charging ports are equipped to supply. Older USB ports may struggle to power this device.
