Great price for a 60W iron, cheapest I could find. Does its job well enough, even though it smokes a little sometimes from between the tip and barrel (it did this before I first used solder, so it's really the iron that is smoking, but it's really minimal).

If you need a cheap soldering iron for soldering large electronic connections, look no further. This thing gets as hot as I expected and works great on those large connections that a 35w iron can't handle. It comes with one fairly large tip, though anything requiring a smaller tip should likely be using a lower-power soldering iron. Best value on a 60w iron you can get!

It heats up well, but also gets a bit too hot for the design. The handle gets hot enough to notice with your hands, although not dangerously so.

The biggest problem I had with this item is the tip. It is junk and started to disintegrate after about 30 mins of use. Once that happens, a 5 second soldering job becomes a 2 minute job--frustrating and not good for the blood pressure. I switched to a higher quality soldering item and it increased my efficiency by 3-5 fold. This might be okay for occassional one-time solder jobs, but if you need to do a lot of soldering, get a better model iron or you'll wish you had.

This soldering iron does its job. Worked fine for me on lead-free .062 silver-bearing solder. I just use it to reconnect loose wires on household items and toys.

I'll still keep this iron. I suppose I could use it to assist in dual iron, 60/40-base desoldering of bad capacitors. It easily puts out heat for lead-containing solder.
It didn't put out enough heat to remove bad caps from a lead-free iMac G5 motherboard. I thought the 60 watts rating would do the job.
I'm a bit disappointed, but this iron was inexpensive/free ship/within a larger order. I'll check out on the web what others have used to get the job done.

I bought this soldering iron because I make hairbows for my little girl and it does a wonderful job of cutting the ribbon while sealing the edge. It heats up really quickly and works great, plus it was very reasonably priced. I am very happy with it.

it works with me. I just used it for once to get my headphone fixed and it did the job well.

I purchased this unit and received it from Kaito with a broken casing. After many, many phone calls and nonsense they agreed to send me out a new unit. I had to send the old unit back and did so with expedited shipping so I could get it back asap. It wasn't until nearly a month afterward that I received the replacement. Upon using the station I realized the temp readout was not the temp of he iron, far from it. The recovery time was awful, and the tip was very shoddy. After using the unit for approximately an hour it died and I don't have the time to deal with Kaito Electronics once again. Please save up a few extra dollars and get a Weller or Hakko. I threw away a month of my time, and some of my hard earned money and still need a soldering station.
