Product Description

From the very beginning quality has been the cornerstone of our philosophy; the extra reliability and durability of our Tools is what we describe as the 'Portasol Advantage'. All Portasol gas powered tools are made with DuPont engineered plastics that are tested for compatibility with butane. This prevents deterioration and increases the durability and life of the tool. Portasol products feature Ultrasonically welded gas tanks which also extends the life of our tools by preventing gas leaking on exposure to impact, UV light and hot/cold temperatures. All Portasol soldering irons are tested for 2 weeks before final set to ensure reliable ignition and adjustable temperature control. Our products are made in Ireland and are proudly stamped Déanta in Eirinn

Pluses:
This iron is extremely quick and easy to light with a butane lighter, so that's how I always do it.
I like the small chisel point tip that comes with it. I've soldered everything from pc boards to tin cans with it.
I like the fact that this iron isn't prone to overheating like many butane irons are.
Finally, I like the readily-available and inexpensive replacement tips.

Minuses:
I don't like the fact that I can't see the butane level.
I don't like the fact that when there is too much butane in the reservoir, the operation is erratic...it works okay until you tip it down to solder and then it does all sorts of unpleasant things (hence four stars rather than five).

All in all, it's a great iron for a good price as long as you give it only small sips of butane. Why just a "good" price? Because the Bernzomatic ST200T is at least as good and costs less. But I love them both. :)

I've been using this style of soldering iron from Weller since 2002. It is extremely useful and easy to use. It achieves the perfect temperature for using .32" 60/40 solder and achieves it quickly. No worrying about adjusting temp manually and setting it too high and vaporizing your solder.

The one main exhaust port for the catalyst is great for directing heat towards shrink tubing and is large enough that one or two flicks of the flint starts it. The cap is also big enough that you can plop it on and put it in your pocket immediately without worrying about burning yourself or the cap coming loose.

Runtime is an average of around 40-45 minutes with a full tank. Overall, this is a great product.

Hard to find reviews of this one. I took a chance and bought it anyway. Well, I can't get as much runtime out of it as it claims, but then, I'm not using any of the brands of butane it recommends. Other than that, great iron! It heats quickly enough and, being butane, gives you some sound so you can hear when it's working. The flint ignition via the striking wheel on the cap is a little goofy, but you'll get the hang of it.

The tip it comes with is rather broad (sort of like a flathead screwdriver) so you'll want to pick up another, smaller one if you are working with small components. But this is great bang for the buck. It keeps heat til you turn it off so you can do an entire board without having to keep a death grip on any safety mechanism or re-ignite the thing. And it is perfectly safe as long as you follow common sense regarding devices that run on butane.

I almost got the Weller or Hakko cordless irons, but I'm happier with this. I would upgrade to something more professional if I were doing electronics for a living, but for building stompboxes and circuit bending this will do fine. It's my first iron, and I'm sure it pales in comparison to some digitally-controlled 25 watt beast, but you can't beat the price.

I had one of these for years. I have found it very useful because it is fully self contained. The lighter is in the lid and it heats up pretty fast. Also the gas switch is locked off when the lid is on, so it cannot be turned on accidentally.

Soldering iron is hard to light with the flint provided. It works much better when you use a flame source.

I've used this for over a year, almost every weekend. This soldering iron is fantastic! its lightweight, lasts through most any project without needing to stop for a refill, cranks out the heat, and can be left running without having it overheat and melt apart.

For the price and appearance of this thing, I expected something flimsy from china that would explode in my hand after using it twice. But, its held out through three butane-bottles worth of refilling and still works great. I can't really think of anything bad to say about it, other than the tip sometimes comes a bit loose and takes me a moment to realize why the soldering iron just wont do its job (sometimes from constant heating/cooling down, you need to re-tighten the tip).
