By J. Scott on January 29, 2006
Wow I am impressed. I spent the last three days on the roof of my house putting up ham radio antenna systems. I needed to solder many conections, unsolder them and resolder them as I was triming antenna to resonant length. This tool is really good. I am showing it to everyone who comes in the house. The hot torch tip is useful to unsolder large-wire connections, the type that seems to suck up all the heat of a normal soldering iron. The iron heats up almost instantly, I have never had a failed start when I click the start button. There is a wire fashioned tool holder that I haven't quite figured out how it is supposed to hold something. This is a real tool for real jobs.

this is a great tool which I've had for a couple months now. works as advertised and is flawless thus far. easy to use. heats up solder tip in several seconds. comes with heat deflector for use with heat shrink - and who doesnt want a solder iron that doubles as a mini blow torch?!

I use both corded and cordless soldering irons to build electronic circuits (I'm an amateur radio operator) and to fix things around the house. For the longest time the Portasol butane cordless (non-electric) soldering iron was my first choice -- in fact it still is, depending on the application, such as shrinking heat-shrink tubing, or soldering components that dislike static electricity. (For info on the Portasol unit that I use, [...]- Weller sells a sister product under its own brand.)

Recently I've been using the Hakko FX-901, a cordless soldering iron that uses 4 AA batteries. (See my review under that product.) I use the Hakko FX-901 more often than the Portasol, especially if I'm only soldering. However, if I need to apply heat to larger components (such as antenna connectors) and/or will apply heat to heat-shrink tubing, the Portasol is my pick.

The advantages of cordless soldering irons are: (a) you can take them anywhere -- up the ladder, under the car, in the yard, and (b) the cord doesn't get in the way -- when I'm working at a table, I don't bump into the cord, nor does the cord trip up parts and tools. The butane-operated Portasol has the added benefits of (c) being almost free of static electricity, and (d) holding your desired temperature by dialing the fuel knob -- the battery-operated Hakko FX-901 needs several seconds to heat up.

Some of you might appreciate working off the grid -- if you're on a farm on in a park, say, you may not have a generator nearby. I've never been in that situation though.

As a soldering iron, it works great. It weighs much less than the Hakko FX-901 -- the latter's heft is due to the 4 AAs. I recommend getting an extra tip or two. Of course that's true of any soldering iron.

I've used it on countless solder jobs! Never a problem! Only problem I did have was when it didn't start on the FIRST CLICK, it started on the second. :-D

I've done at least 3 remote starters, 20 motherboard re-flows, many car wiring jobs. This tool JUST WORKS.

BTW the wire thing goes on the left side of the box to act as a stand. I'll upload a picture somewhere to show.

Nearly all of my soldering work is on old motorcycle and car electrical systems. Mostly it involves 12 to 14 gauge wire and lots of connectors. My big Craftsman soldering gun was cumbersome and difficult to use. This Portasol iron is exactly what I needed. It heats very quickly, and its small tip is just the thing for soldering connectors. Lightweight and easy to handle, it cuts way down on fatigue too. I haven't tried the various attachements yet, but even if I never use them this is still a great tool.

This tool works as advertised and is perfect for small soldering jobs where there is no power available such as on a boat. The tip get very hot when the control valve is wide open and it can easily solder multi-strand 14 gauge wire but it can also be turned down to handle very thin small gauge signal wiring. One of the best tools that I have purchased. Note that it does not include the butane fuel.

One of those tools that- once you've bought it- you don't know how you ever lived without it.

I initially planned on just getting one of those cheapo Radioshack butane soldering kits for the odd occasions that I need to solder wiring in my car, but was talked into this one by one of my cousins, who owns and uses an older version.

I was initially hesitant because of the price, but I'm really happy I bought it.

This is an exceedingly nice, well-thought-out kit. I really love the fact that it comes with a stand for the iron that clips into the case. Whats really nice is that- due to the way its angled- you can either put the iron in from the top, angled down (for soldering) or from the bottom angled up. (for when you want to heat/torch things without having to hold the tool in your hand)

I also really like the fact that they give you a separate spot for the cover, so that you can store the tool with it on OR off.

I initially thought I wouldn't use the hot knife, but its very useful for cutting nylon rope, as it both cuts and fuses at the same time giving you nice neat rope ends.

The torch and the hot air tip are both very useful.

I really like that it comes with a sponge for soldering.

The butane lasts a LONG time- at least an hour. I really don't need to refill it that often, and I use it very, very often.

However, note:
If you don't already have a good soldering iron, and don't have an urgent need for in-the-field soldering, get yourself a good Weller soldering station first.

The iron in this kit perfectly useful, mind you, but if I could do the work at my bench with my electric soldering station, I would do so every time.
