I've been shopping for butane soldering iron, and this thing seemed terrific. However it is not without some issues. Let me summarize:

Pros:
- Very small. It is really portable and easily fits anywhere.
- no wires and no location limitation.
- Included cap protects the tip when stored in toolboxes among other messy places. Snaps on tightly. (it's clear acrylic instead of white as shown in photo)
- Piezo ignition - no need for a lighter to light up the torch! I wonder why others haven't been doing the same. It make so much sense.
- It stands up on its own, instead of requiring a stand or the usual horizontal placement of other butane irons that ends up damaging the surface with heat.
- Refillable via port at the bottom
- Heats up quickly, with a good mesh of metal heating elements to aid in combustion. It is quite hot enough for soldering.
- Runs for a fairly long time.
- Relatively cheap, without feeling cheap.

Cons:
- The tip came a bit oxidized already as solder won't stick even after some flux cleaning with solder, which leads to the next problem:
- The tip is relatively hard to find. Only Weller seem to be supplying this 1.6mm size? With mail order shipping it ain't cheap.
- Torch doesn't work consistently. With the solder tip removed, the metal mesh elements start a combustion on its own, killing the blue flame and turning red with heat. Using the piezo igniter brings the blue flame back sometimes. I suspect it may be the butane purity/pressure that causes this problem instead of the unit itself, however.
- I don't know if it has something to do with the butane quality (ronson), but there doesn't seem to be much difference in the heat output or flame with the butane adjustment.

The first hour I used this iron I thought it was the best soldering iron on the market! Push button ignition, quick preheat, precise temperature control, great solder joints. Then things started to go wrong...

As the other reviewer pointed out, there is definitely something wrong with the soldering tip and its finish. After a short time, solder refused to stick to it and soldering wires became cumbersome. I tried wiping it with a wet sponge, diping it in rosin soldering flux, giving it a good scrub with a green scouring pad and nothing helped. I even resorted to using some 800 grit wet/dry trimite sanding paper to clean the tip. The sandpaper definitely helped the appearence of the tip as it had a solder like shine. But when I tried using the iron again, same problem, solder won't won't stick. It looks sooty like a wood stove residue and makes the iron almost useless after a very short time.

Right about the time the tip began acting up, I also noticed the piezo ignition stopped working too. I would light the tip about once out of every 10 or 15 tries and I resorted to using a bic lighter to get the iron going.

So at first blush it was a fantastic butane soldering iron. After that, I went back to my trusty bernzomatic. I can't recommend this iron to anyone.

I filled it and clicked it and it never worked, right out of the package. Keep your money and find a better product.

Only had it a week but it gets hot and solders, the most common complaint is these portable style irons leak butane after a while, I recommend only putting enough butane to get the job done and not filling it. Just a 2 second squirt of butane everytime it runs out

Gets hot quickly, wide amount of adjustment, reliable ignition, this is the absolute best of the dozen or so pen soldering iron brands Ive tested.

I have had a number of other butane soldering irons before, and hated them. They were very difficult to light, the tended to go out, they leaked butane quickly when off, so you had to fill it before each use. This one, so far, has none of these problems. It lights with a click, heats quickly and efficiently, stays lit, goes off when you turn it off, and has butane when you go back to light it again. I will probably use this before my plug-in soldering iron in the future.

This little torch is very powerful and very adjustable. The small point tip is handy for light wires and tight working spaces. Also, the size and the snug cap make it ideal for carrying as an emergency tool. I also bought a small tube of solder to use with it. They take up little space or weight in my motorcycle backpack. Highly recommended!

This iron replaces one of the radio shack style. And MAN! what a great difference this one makes. It fires up with ease. No more flicking the bic to get the iron going. Heats up fast and is ready to solder in just a min. Cools down pretty fast too. I'm so far very satisfied with this purchase and plan on soldering lots of stuff.
