So I decided to try again and get this. It's a thousand times better, but still not without it's flaws:
1) it doesn't get any more portable
2) works MUCH better than ColdHeat or butane cordless irons
3) It uses a traditional tip that actually GETS HOT when turned on... unlike the Cold Heat, which basically sends current THROUGH your work to heat it up.
4) It's mid-range heat doesn't fry your work. And again, by not zapping your work to heat it up, you don't risk damaging or overheating chips, etc. In fact, I find it a PERFECT heat for circuit boarding -- just hot enough to melt the solder but not to damage the boards.
5) It has a heat-resistant, vented cap you can put on directly after use which even locks-out the on switch to prevent accidental activation in a pocket.
1) It does take a long time to warm up, even of fresh batteries. Expect to wait 15-20 seconds holding the button waiting for it to warm up.
2) Batteries don't last too long.
3) It's mid-range temperature doesn't do too well on solder that's been heated and cooled a few times. But then, so does my corded iron.
All in all, I still wholeheartedly recommend the Weller BP645MP!!
This is totally useless! If I could rate it 0 stars, I would. This product is far from deserving of even one star.
I'm not sure though what the other posters are talking about not getting hot enough. Had a project going with LEDs and it worked great. Was nice not having to worry about burning myself and not having to wait for a couple minutes for my iron to heat up. Though that might have been because it was a radioshack dual wattage iron with stand, so probably not the best quality iron.
Certainly not for professionals this iron, but for field work and small home electronics projects it works better then my plug in Radioshack one. Oh and I also like that you can just stand it up on the bottom and its nice and steady, so you don't have to worry about having a place to prop it up or something.
