+ 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 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.Read more ›
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 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.
