I purchased this unit to replace an old Bluepoint butane soldering iron that I have misplaced. At first I was disappointed when I received the soldering iron, as it did not come with a case and accessories as my previous butane soldering iron did. However, those feeling were quickly dismissed after a few uses of this iron.

As a test engineer, I set up many electrical tests. These tests require 30AWG instrumentation wire soldered onto the wires of electrical harnesses, which sometimes can be into the thousands of circuits. I use a Weller digital soldering station for this task when assembling these harnesses on the bench before they are plugged into the test fixtures. Many times when fixturing these massive harnesses into position inside environmental chambers, the 30AWG wire will sometimes break, or more circuits are to be instrumented as they are inside the environmental chambers. This is where the butane soldering iron comes in.

The iron performed flawlessly. I cannot attest to the three hour usage on a single charge of butane, as stated in the description. I can say that the iron is ready to use almost immediately, though the description says ready to use in thirty seconds. I have used this so far soldering 30AWG wire to circuits as large as 10AWG wire using lead-free solder with impressive results using the supplied chisel tip. The build quality is top notch; even the plastic parts feel of stout construction. No disappointment whatsoever!

This is a must have for any tech. General field work is not always synonymous with accessibility. The only alternative is having a tool of convenience. This soldering iron is highly portable, versatile, and prone to envy. The only drawback is that it doesn't come with a case, as does its less costly counterparts.

Over the last 25 years I've used quite a few butane irons, most have averaged about a year of service before being tossed. So far this one has survived a little over 3 months in a very hostile mobile environment with little or no degradation. It's the most expensive butane I have ever owned so my expectations are quite high. I will revisit this review next year to update.

This is a super useful tool, as long as it isn't your only iron.

This is my 4th one. I am an Audio Visual installer, and am definitely a heavy user, but these are not the most reliable items. When you have to click it 20 times to light it, it gets very annoying, and you can't manually ignite them with a lighter. Eventually they just stop working, and this one is replacing one that melted itself on a job site.

BUT, they are ridiculously handy when working up high, anywhere you can't get mains power, or where a proper station is not practical. Gets to temperature very quickly and the tips have great heat capacitance. In spite of the reliability issues, I still recommend.

Given the option, I prefer to use my Weller plug-in base station with adjustable temp tip. This beauty is slick enough to stand in without making me grumble too much. I had another Pyropen for many years before wearing it out. (Actually, it may only need a new burner.)

The Pyropen heats up quickly, has adjustable temperature and a variety of tips to choose from. My only grumble is watching the fingers from that exhaust port. But if you want a portable soldering iron, this is it. I've tried almost every other gas and battery-powered unit out there, and nothing else is even close. Extremely reliable.

I have had my last pyropen for about fifteen years, Excellent for putting on PL259s in below freezing temperatures while hanging on the side of a 40 ft pole mounting an antenna. Every outside tech needs one of these.

don't even think twice about it. It is a must have in your toolbox. Yeah, it would be nice to have a metal case for it but if you are going to put it in your toolbox, you wouldn't need a case. This one is a no-brainer.

The one thing that I know of that hasn't changed for over 20 years! It is just as good as the first one I bought some 20 years ago. The quality and temperature control is excellent! This is one product that needs no improvements!
