For anyone who owned or used the original Portasol soldering iron, they will notice some vast improvements to this second design. Primarily, ignition no longer requires a "bic-lighter-type-spark" (that usually required at least three efforts), as it has been replaced by a piezo-electric spark. In addition, the gas supply seems much more stable and controllable, and finally, the soldering tips are much more robust and use the same mounting device for easy switching (though one must still wait for those parts to cool down before handling). Overall, the tool is well-built and very quick to achieve soldering temperatures. The only negatives I see are the relatively short run-time per tank of gas (about 45 mins on a low setting - less than they claim), and the absence of a temperature gauge, or series of led lights to roughly indicate temp. I don't think this feature is present on other, even more expensive portable units, but it would be a nice addition to ensure that expensive electronic components (esp high power LEDs) don't get fried.

I have been soldering for a long time using many different irons over the years (cheap corded irons, professional soldering stations, cordless battery-powered irons, and other butane soldering irons). I feel qualified to comment on the Weller PC2 soldering iron:
THE GOOD:
+ Piezo electric ignition is easy, reliable and more convenient that traditional "flint" type ignitors which usually take multiple tries to start and worsen as the tip/flint ages. You simply press down on the ignition button to light it. So far this iron is a dream to start compared to my previous Radio Shack butane soldering iron.
+ Exhaust vent on tip is located on one side of tip. This is important as it can help prevent burning your fingers and objects close by (wire, plastic surfaces etc) during operation (from the hot exhaust gas). My Radio Shack butane iron has vents around the tip and sometimes it`s easy to inadvertently damage things or burn your fingers if you are not careful.
+ The tip that ships with this iron is a flat tip (two flat sides) which is better for soldering wires etc than the typical round tips. (I don`t think anyone is going to solder fine pitch SMD parts with any cordless soldering iron).
THE BAD:
- The biggest drawback in my opinion is the lack of an integrated fold-out stand as in the Radio Shack butane iron. With the RS iron you can unfold the stand with your thumb finger on the same hand you use to hold it (i.e. it`s a one-hand operation), which is extremely convenient and can prevent accidentally damaging something if you need to put down the iron & grab a part or more solder during use. The PC2 unfortunately has no fold-out stand and due to the round shape of the iron it WILL ROLL if you try to put it down.

This is the best butane soldering pencil I have used. And I have used a lot....
great temp control and the ignition has never gone out.
I am on my second one because my other one "left me" at a job site...

If you are a field tech save your money and get the one without the case. It is bulky and I never used it.
It is sturdy enough to throw in your tool bag.

I have had countless el-cheapo Radio Shack corded soldering irons over the years. For casual DIY soldering and light hobby duties, the Radio Shack units are capable. The tips do disintegrate quickly though, and you've always got to be hyper aware of the heated iron's tendency to follow the whims of its cord. The irons themselves are so light and the cheap cords so stiff, you need to work hard at making sure the iron stays put; not burning self, carpet, table, etc. Then you still need to deal with the damn thing while it's cooling down.

I finally bit the bullet and picked up one of the Weller butane units after escrow closed on my new home.

For casual use, there is no comparison. This is the Cadillac of light-duty soldering irons. It heats within about 30 seconds. A full tank lasts a sufficient amount of time. It lasts even longer if you turn off the unit while placing parts/components. Considering how quickly it heats, you're better off to just turn it off than leave it running if you're going to leave it sit for more than about 15 seconds.

Best off: no more cords. No need to position your work close enough to an outlet or have to hunt down an extension cord.

The unit is idiot proofed with a cap that forces the iron into "off" mode when capped. When you're done working, just cap the iron and put in with your tools. Though the cap does get warm from the radiant heat, it is thick enough to stay cool enough to touch as the iron cools.

The only downside is heat that comes from the exhaust port. If you're unaware, it could be easy to accidently burn something.

Just taken delivery of this excellent item. I had been faced with restoration of an Edwardian stained glass door panel where the existing solder would not melt using today's Weller 100W electric irons. I bought the above because of its higher temperatures and it does the job. Still not desperately quick but better than risking glass breakage from cutting and prising. The iron is simplicity to fill, start and use - but start it on full gas flow - and it works excellently. One thing though, at max temp if you press too hard the tip will bend because it is so hot! So far so good.
