This thing barely gets hot enough to melt thin solder on it's tip.
Chris Mann
It doesn't have enough energy to heat a surface so that solder will flow evenly throughout.

If you were thinking this would make a good beginner/hobby iron, you would be incorrect.

Ever heard of Weller Cold Heat Pro Soldering Tool, Model# CHT100? I did, and I bought one (feel free to read my horrible review on the product's page). What a waste.

So I decided to try again and get this. It's a thousand times better, but still not without it's flaws:

Pros:
1) it doesn't get any more portable
2) works MUCH better than ColdHeat or butane cordless irons
3) It uses a traditional tip that actually GETS HOT when turned on... unlike the Cold Heat, which basically sends current THROUGH your work to heat it up.
4) It's mid-range heat doesn't fry your work. And again, by not zapping your work to heat it up, you don't risk damaging or overheating chips, etc. In fact, I find it a PERFECT heat for circuit boarding -- just hot enough to melt the solder but not to damage the boards.
5) It has a heat-resistant, vented cap you can put on directly after use which even locks-out the on switch to prevent accidental activation in a pocket.

Cons:
1) It does take a long time to warm up, even of fresh batteries. Expect to wait 15-20 seconds holding the button waiting for it to warm up.
2) Batteries don't last too long.
3) It's mid-range temperature doesn't do too well on solder that's been heated and cooled a few times. But then, so does my corded iron.

All in all, I still wholeheartedly recommend the Weller BP645MP!!

It doesn't have enough energy to heat a surface so that solder will flow evenly throughout. It will get hot enough to melt solder onto the tip of the tool itself but that is about it.This thing is a generator of "Cold-Solder Joints" if I ever saw one.

I bought this from a home improvement store hoping that this would do what it purports to do. I should have followed my skeptical intuition in this case however. Put simply, it didn't get hot enough to melt solder very well. You would think that it would be capable of melting the solder that came packaged with the iron, but I didn't even succeed in that very easily. I'm not incredibly experienced in soldering, but I have needed to do so from time to time. I guess I'll stick to butane and wall outlets in the future. The Weller wall outlet model that I got to replace it does work a lot better, but is still a little pricy for an ordinary soldering iron.

I have been soldering electronic projects (ham radio) for over 50 years and have tried every type of "cordless" soldering iron I could lay my hands on. Some were good, usable devices. Some (like the Cold Heat) were about useless. So when I discovered the Weller PB645 I bought one on the spot. It does just what it is advertised to do; SOLDER! No it cannot compete with a "plug-in" iron for large jobs. However, I have found that it is great for that one or two small connections that you need to get done right now. It will complete a small repair job in less than the time it takes a conventional iron to just get hot enough to melt solder. It's handy, small (it gets into really tight spots with ease) works great and is affordable. All my other cordless (butane, Cold Heat, etc.) will be packed up and stored in favor of this little gem. IMHO it's the best!

I bought this soldering iron a few weeks back to do some minor repairs on my landscaping lights. Since it was battery powered, I figured it would be perfect for this type of work. However, I was extremely disappointed. The iron took an excessive amount of time to heat up, and when it did, the thing never got hot enough. I really regret buying this item and should have opted for a corded model that produces more heat.

Thought I didn't buy this product on Amazon.com, I felt compelled to share my thoughts on it. This is one of the most useless tools I have ever purchased. I bought the item because it was advised as a good instrument for soldering on circuit boards. Unfortunately, it takes forever for the tip to get hot enough to melt the solder, and by the time it does start to melt, it's as though the iron shuts off. It is extremely frustrating when trying to remove solder. It's almost as though it doesn't get hot enough. I regret that I did not purchase a standard corded soldering iron with a higher wattage.

This is totally useless! If I could rate it 0 stars, I would. This product is far from deserving of even one star.

My husband said it takes too long to heat and goes through Duracell's like they're free. It's going back.

I was highly skeptical as it was cheaper then the Coleman Coldheat, but having the longer neck for small electronics would be better as that was a problem I had heard about with using the Coldheat.

I'm not sure though what the other posters are talking about not getting hot enough. Had a project going with LEDs and it worked great. Was nice not having to worry about burning myself and not having to wait for a couple minutes for my iron to heat up. Though that might have been because it was a radioshack dual wattage iron with stand, so probably not the best quality iron.

Certainly not for professionals this iron, but for field work and small home electronics projects it works better then my plug in Radioshack one. Oh and I also like that you can just stand it up on the bottom and its nice and steady, so you don't have to worry about having a place to prop it up or something.
