I hated to even give this piece of junk 1 star.

If you can't short the electrodes at the tip, it doesn't produce heat, so you have to work at it to keep the electrical contact.

I will never, ever buy another Coleman product.

The way this soldering iron works is by using 2 carbon electrodes which are closely spaced on the tip. You turn it on, and it doesn't heat up until you short the 2 electrodes at the tip with what you are soldering. At this point, it works like a mini arc welder and heats up the solder. The gap is about 1/32nd of an inch which makes it difficult to do pin-point work (because it doesn't have a point). If you can't short the electrodes at the tip, it doesn't produce heat, so you have to work at it to keep the electrical contact. I didn't like this at first, but I got the hang of it. I tried desoldering components and it seemed to work fine. I also tried desoldering wick and that also appeared to work. It was difficult trying to tin a wire because you have to put the solder between the gap to get it to melt and you just can't leave the iron on the wire to heat it up. So while it may work for most things, there are some things you will have to use your old fashioned soldering iron for. The tips seem rather fragile. I would be worried about damaging it since it only appears to be a carbon rod.

After about fifteen suscessful uses of this tool, I was simply solder twisted phone wires and the tip broke. NOW..everthing in the instructions said the tip was fragile. But their description of fragile stretchs the imigination to its limits!

So I called customer service. After a fifteen minute wait a polite service rep informed me that this is NOT uncommon. I said I had tried to purchase a replacement tip locally. (Chicago) I was informed that the tips are only available from Coleman and (her words) "they are expensive". How much?

16.95 plus shipping. THAT'S MORE THAN I PAID FOR THE DARN THING!

Draw your own conclusions. I will never, ever buy another Coleman product.

1 star is the only way I could post this consumer warning..Amazon will not allow a lower submission.

I got this at Home Depot for doing some things on my computer. I got it and the very, very thin solder that they did not say you needed and I had to go to 4 different places. Then as I got home I sat down and started soldering and it would not give me a good joint. Then as i put the soldering iron into it's case furious that i only made a half decent joint the tip broke as I was puting into the section just for it.

Go get a normal soldering iron. It may be less safe but at least it works.

I purchased a cold heat soldering kit at Costco for $15 on sale. I spent 2 hours experimenting and trying to get the results I saw on the TV infomercial.

No luck. Not one good solder joint with 18 GA speaker wire. Granted 18 Gauge wire is a little heavy for this device but it's only speaker wire. The free wire stripers strip the wire but removed half the copper strands with the coaring. Nothing about this kit worked well. I was suckered by slick advertising and a cool package! The kit is going back ASAP to Costco. Don't waste your money.

The Tip was broken when I got it, I called Colman was told to call back in 5 weeks.

The cost of a Tip is $9.95 + $6.95 shipping, I never will buy Colman Merchandise

seemed like a good idea to have one of these just in case. Well befor keeping it i wanted to try it out. Item didn't work at all. I tried it with two different gauge solders, and it did not work on either. I even tried it with new batteries and that didn't help. I was quite patient, and started with the solder only first and never got it to work. Im not sure if it was deffective or not, I also check the tip installment to no avail. By the time it started to work, the plastic housing around the tip began to melt. This was the point that i just returned it.
