This basic Weller 25 Watt Soldering Iron Kit does exactly what it should: it solders, and for a basic soldering iron, it does its job well. It's an essential tool for a beginner, basic hobbyist or for the toolkit of a seasoned pro to replace an older version (and yes, have owned a few over the years). It heats up to about the recommended temperature of 750 degrees F, and has a heat-resistant handle that has been a trademark of this tool for years.

It includes three nickel-plated tips: a familiar chisel point, a pencil point, and a flat screwdriver tip. It has a stainless steel barrel, an improvement of the much older models that Weller used to make. And yes, they do last for years.

Wish that I could say the same about the ColdHeat Cordless Soldering Tool, but I can't due to some serious flaws in that product. See my review on it for further details.

If the small Weller soldering iron seems too basic for your needs, take a serious look at the Weller WLC100 Soldering Station, an excellent 5-star product for the hobbyist and the do-it-yourselfer alike. Must admit that this is the next one on my shopping list.

This is a good, inexpensive, consumer-oriented general purpose soldering iron for tasks such as automotive and household wiring and medium-sized electronic component work such as that antique Grundig reel-to-reel tape player you picked up at a yard sale. The included "soldering aid" tool is handy for straightening or bending wires and component leads. If you can, I suggest you pick this up at Wally-World - you'll pay local sales tax but, you'll save shipping costs and time.

The Weller brand from Cooper Handtools is outstanding. [...] But, make sure you understand that this particular kit - the SP23LK - is a consumer-grade item. For finer electronics work and somewhat advanced tasks such as "through-hole" and "surface mount technology" soldering and desoldering, the operating temperature of this iron is much too high and the included and available tips are much too large.) If you're just starting out in electronics and are even just somewhat serious about it, the SP23 is NOT the iron to start out on - you'll probably become quickly frustrated, burn up some components, not learn good soldering techniques, and wind up tossing the iron and your new hobby or profession. If your budget can afford it and you think you'll be spending a fair amount of time working with electronics, consider a "soldering station" such as the Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station, Power Unit, Soldering Pencil, Stand and Sponge (outstanding price on Amazon, even with shipping!).

Otherwise, the Weller SP23LK is a good consumer-grade general purpose kit not intended for serious electronics work. I rate it 4-out-of-5-stars only because there are several other equally capable general purpose irons out there.

A cheap solder is a cheap solder. It does its job. I bought it to fix an emerald bracelet and I was successful. I saved a lot of money fixing it myself than paying a jeweler...

The biggest disadvantage of this Soldering Iron is the tip wills no longer soldering (The Soldering Tin could not cover the tip anymore) within 1-2 hours, but the good thing is we could use the Hakko Soldering tip to solve this problem easily.

I used the Hakko soldering station for many years when I was in China. To be honest, Hakko has the best soldering products I have seen in my life and the major difference between Hakko and other soldering products is the Tip. Hakko's soldering tip could be covered by the tin easily for at least one year. I came to this wonderful country for my undergraduate stdy. Therefore, I have no permanent home here, thus I looked for the chep soldering product which could use the Hakko tip. Eventually, I found this one.

The inside diameter of Hakko 900M-T-1.2D (4.07mm) is exactly equal to the outside diameter of Weller's MT1 tip. Thus, the MT1 could be inserted into the 900M, perfectly. (See my uploaded photo on this product's page for more information)

Finally, we could get a good soldering Iron under 20 bucks and this soldering iron could be used to solder the SMT ICs. Actually, I do use this soldering Iron to solder the PCBs which have tons of SMT ICs.

UPDATED 4/17/2012. The tip is no longer usable after just three or four uses. The metal that it is made out of must be very soft, because it didn't like my brass sponge. It is no longer conical: it now has a weird "dent". I can no longer recommend this iron.

Instead, go on SparkFun's website and get their $9.95 iron. It's vastly superior to this one, even if it does't come with all the extras.

Great light duty iron that performs well on DIY projects, small repair etc. The "kit" idea I'm not sold on - just buy the iron alone where possible since you'll be needing a sturdy stand and perhaps some "helping hands" anyway for safety. If you do go with this kit then toss out the tired little piece of solder it comes with and get yourself some 60/40 with flux.

After having used a professional soldering iron at my college. I wasn't expecting anything great out of this soldering iron, but I wasn't expecting it to be a total bust.

I don't think heat transfers through the tips very well. You can certainly see they get very hot, but it takes them a long time to transfer the heat to the pads on DIY electronics kits. Also, the tips wore out within about 30 minutes of use. By the time I finished my project I was on the last of three differently shaped tips that came with the iron, only one of which was shaped for soldering PCBs. Tinning the tip made the tinned area last longer, but the failure of the tip surrounding the tinned area still destroyed the tip at an alarming rate. Also, the provided tips are really not good for soldering PCBs, even the one that looks like it was intended to be used for them was a lot less than ideal. They're quite a bit too wide for the pads of the through holes, and if you're not alert you'll find it burning the solder mask with them even at the highest angle you can manage.

I'm seeing some positive reviews here, and I'm wondering if this line of hobbyist irons are just inconsistent. I think the issue was that the iron was getting hotter than the low quality tips could handle. Either way, I tossed mine in the trash after one hour and half long project and 3 oxidized tips, and I recommend you look for a higher quality iron if you're expecting too use it often.
